Cold-Front Brings Rain and Cooler Temps to the Valley

We’ll spend the night dry for the majority of the Tennessee Valley, but a cold-front is currently sweeping out of the Plains, dragging cooler air behind it while producing showers and storms ahead of it.


This rainfall will begin affecting the Western Tennessee Valley around sunrise Sunday morning before gradually spreading east across the rest of the area through the day. The key word here is spread. Scattered showers are a possibility ahead of the main line, so the rain won’t exactly move in an organized solid line, but rather gradually increase ahead of the main band.

The severe weather threat is low, but a few stronger thunderstorms producing gusty winds are possible.

After the showers and storms overspread the majority of the Valley by Sunday evening, drier air will begin ending the rain from west to east overnight Sunday night, leaving us with clearing skies and cooler temperatures on Monday.

After the rain moves out of the Valley, cooler and less humid air moves in. Check out the forecast discussion to find out when morning temperatures are most likely to dip into the 40’s behind the front.
