Refreshing Start to the School Year!
It was a refreshing and unseasonably cool morning across the Tennessee Valley as most children got ready to start a new year of school and everyone else a new work week. Drier air filtered into the region from the north overnight, with dewpoints dropping into the upper 50s, making it a lot less muggy outside. Temperatures dipped into the upper 50s in many spots, with a few isolated locations cooling into the mid 50s, there was definitely a slight chill to the air! The sun rose just after 6:10 this morning, and temperatures are starting to rise from their morning lows. Most are sitting in the low to mid 60s at the 8:00 am hour.
There were some areas of patchy fog this morning, with locally dense fog in the eastern valleys, reducing visibility for some to less than a quarter mile. Visibilities are improving as the fog is lifting and the air mass is heating up. Fog should be completely gone within the hour. Below is a look at visibilities as of 8:00 am.
As a disturbance passes overhead, a few clouds will pass by, but a mostly to partly sunny sky will prevail today, aiding in warming temperatures into the low to mid 80s. Average highs for mid-to-late August should be in the low 90s. Tonight temperatures will cool again into the upper 50s and low 60s. Highs will slowly warm to near 90 degrees by Friday, with lows warming into the low to mid 60s. Dry conditions are expected for the work week, with only isolated rain chances for the weekend. Enjoy the unseasonably mild and less humid air!:)
