Partly Cloudy & Pleasant
This morning was perfect sleeping in weather, with a dreary, cloudy sky and spotty light to moderate showers. Temperatures this morning ranged in the upper 60s and low 70s. After the morning rain, clouds started clearing from west to east across the Tennessee Valley, but just as the sky was becoming mostly sunny more clouds started building into the area from the west associated with another disturbance and cluster of showers and storms. That current complex of rain is moving into west, central Mississippi and has been moving east-southeast. The northern edge of the rain may clip some of the southern counties in the Tennessee Valley as it moves eastward, but do think most will remain dry as the leading edge of the rain has taken a more southeasterly dive. Residual cloud cover from this complex, making our sky partly cloudy will be the main effects. Below is a look at the regional satellite and radar and the current temperatures in southern middle Tennessee and north Alabama.
The cold front that allowed the lift for the showers this morning is located just to the south of the Tennessee Valley, in central Alabama and is close enough that it could trigger a few isolated showers with daytime heating, with the best chance being south of the Tennessee River, but most will remain dry. High temperatures today will be dependent on the cloud cover and rain over your area. Most will warm into the mid 80s. Slightly drier air will slowly filter into the area region today from the north, but don’t expect a significant drop in dewpoints. Over the next 24 to 36 hours the cold front to our south will lift north as a warm front as an upper disturbance and area of low pressure track east along it, increasing clouds tonight and the chance for rain Sunday into Monday.
