Clouds will roll back in from the west tonight. Don’t expect any rain. That chance will come tomorrow afternoon. Temperatures will stay in the upper 30s and lower 40s with a south wind at 4-8 mph. Thursday will be mostly cloudy, breezy and warm with highs near 60. A few, brief, showers will be possible along a cold front that will move in late Thursday afternoon.
This will be a strong front and temperatures will drop fast with a strong northwest wind that will follow the front. Morning lows will be in the upper 20s Friday morning. It will be a chilly Friday and a stiff northwest wind will make it feel more like the 20s all day. It is beginning to look like this front could make it farther south than previous forecasts. Therefore it could have an impact on the development of the weekend storm system. Today’s model guidance now suggests an area of low pressure may not form, or may not be as well organized with the next system.
Therefore the weekend storm system is beginning to show a few subtle changes for Sunday. I’m still expecting increasing clouds with high near 48 on Saturday but the rain on Sunday might not end up as heavy. There is still a lot of uncertainty with Sunday and Monday. Colder air just to the north could move in a before the moisture gets out of North Alabama and southern Tennessee. Right now it looks like we could see a few flakes fly early Monday but it’s just something to keep an eye on right now.
Have a great night.
