Afternoon Update- Father’s Day
As expected, Father’s has turned out seasonably warm and mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid to upper 80′s and a light breeze. We will likely warm a couple degrees before the afternoon is over. Here are the 2:00 PM temps around the Tennessee Valley:
Somewhat dry air is still nosing into portions of North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee off the Appalachians. This will keep rain chances very slim for the rest of the afternoon. The dewpoint map below indicates the driest air in blue and white. Notice, there are still some areas around the region with somewhat higher dewpoints, which is why we cannot completely rule out some shower activity through tonight.
We’re watching showers develop in northern Tennessee at the moment, but they will have a tough time working their way through the Tennessee Valley.
The best chance for us to see any rainfall will be in those areas in Southern Tennessee where the humidity in the lower levels is a bit higher (as indicated by the development of cumulus clouds on the visible satellite image below).
It looks like a hot week is ahead for the Tennessee Valley, the full forecast can be found at WHNT’s Forecast Page.
