A Cloudy Start With Some Improvement
It was a cloudy, foggy and rainy start for some across the Tennessee Valley. The rain has now dissipated and moved east, with most staying dry for the rest of the day, with only a chance for a stray shower south of the Tennessee River. Clouds and some fog are still hanging around slowing the warmup this morning. Here are 10:00 am temperatures across the valley.
A weak front was the culprit for the showers earlier this morning, which is now located south of the Tennessee River. Wind has shifted out of the north and a slightly drier and cooler air mass is starting to filter into the region. There will be some clearing and sunshine, but clouds will hang around into the afternoon, with highs will only warming into the upper 70s and low 80s.
A low pressure system continues to develop in Texas, pulling up gulf moisture and bringing rain to Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and even southwest Arkansas. This system will track eastward along the weak front that is pushing south of the area. As the low pressure moves east, it will increase moisture and rain chances, especially Sunday afternoon and evening, overnight into Monday. The track and timing of the low is still in question, but it looks right now to take a more northeasterly track, meaning more rainfall for the Tennessee Valley. Below is a look at the satellite and radar.
