Numerous showers and thunderstorms will develop across the area. Rainfall totals Wednesday through Friday will be anywhere from 2-4”. Additional rainfall could occur in stronger thunderstorms. Shower and thunderstorm activity could continue into the weekend if the front does not track farther west.

Afternoon highs will be in the lower 80s and upper 70s into the beginning of the weekend with overnight lows around 70.
If you are traveling to the Gulf of Mexico or the Great Smoky Mountains the forecast isn’t looking much better. Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible there as well.
