Another Soggy Start
It was another rainy start to the stay with an overcast sky, fog and mist, along with some passing showers. Clouds and spotty, generally light to moderate showers will continue to be possible through the morning and into this afternoon, thanks to the boundary that has been lingering across the region over the past couple days. The bulk of the rain will stay to the south and east of the Tennessee Valley today. Some clearing from west to east is expected as the sky over northern Mississippi and western Tennessee is clearing and becoming mostly sunny, as slightly drier air is starting to move in northwest of the boundary over north/central Alabama. High temperatures today will vary and likely range again in the upper 70s and low to mid 80s, with areas farther west having the best chance of seeing more sun and therefore may be warmer. Below is a current look at the regional satellite and radar.
Over the next 24-36 hours, as an upper disturbance continues to approach, it will finally push the boundary to the southeast and allow for slightly drier air and high pressure to build back into the region. There will still be the chance for a few isolated showers later today, tonight and early Monday, mainly in locations east of I-65 and south of the Tennessee River, before the boundary clears the area. After that, pleasant and seasonable conditions are expected most of the work week. Highs will slowly warm to near 90 degrees by the end of the week, with overnight lows ranging in the low to mid 60s. Rain chances look to return potentially late Friday and into the upcoming weekend.
