Heaviest Rain Ending, Windy and Cold Tonight
The bulk of the rainfall is now about to exit the Eastern Tennessee Valley, leaving just lingering light showers and cooler temperatures. The potential for strong to severe weather continues to our east and south, but our threat for active weather is long gone.
Our temperatures dropped significantly this morning behind an initial cold-front, but the main front will be moving into the area this evening with much colder air behind it. As this boundary moves across the area during the next few hours, our winds will continue to increase, possibly gusting to over 30mph before they begin subsiding after midnight. Scattered snow showers will be possible, especially in our eastern areas, but no significant impacts from accumulations are anticipated.
Thursday will begin cold with lows in the upper 20’s and lower 30’s. Despite abundant sunshine, afternoon temperatures will struggle to get out of the 40’s, and a northwest wind will make it feel even cooler.
Yet another arctic air-mass moves into the area Thursday night, dropping temperatures into the 20’s by Friday morning.
