The Next 24 Hours – Rainy Start to Friday
Another wet day begins with widespread showers on Friday morning. The chance of rain begins in the “likely” range then slowly drops as the day goes on. By mid-afternoon, only a few isolated, light showers will be left as the bulk of the rain shifts east and north of the Tennessee Valley. If we get any sunshine at all, lower 70s are not out of the question. Even with clouds limiting our warm-up, we still see highs approaching 70 degrees between 1 and 4 PM.
No strong storms are expected, but some of the rain could be briefly heavy through midday. A south-southwest breeze averaging 10 to 15 MPH (gusting above 20) keeps the moisture supply in tact, and more warm, humid weather is in the forecast through the weekend. In fact, record warmth is possible on Saturday! See WHNT.com/Weather for the latest specific forecast for the warm weather this weekend and the coming cold snap next week.
