Scattered showers possible before 10 a.m. Sunday
An upper-level low slowly tracking across middle Tennessee will keep the chance for scattered showers around in the Tennessee Valley for much of the first half of Sunday. While an isolated downpour with some thunder and lightning is possible, most of what falls should remain on the light side. The best odds of your yard getting wet today come during the morning hours. As the upper feature lifts out this afternoon, most will see some sunshine and warm temperatures, but a stray storm or two still remains a possibility.
Rain chances drop significantly by Monday and stay low through the remainder of the week. High pressure building in at the mid-levels will promote hotter temperatures and only isolated afternoon and evening storms. Temperatures will rise to near 90 Monday afternoon, but will hover in the middle 90s each afternoon beginning Wednesday.
