We’re heading into the third rainy weekend in a row. Scattered showers are already moving into the Tennessee Valley and will only become more widespread as we head through the morning.
We’ll have a few waves of rain moving in from the west today, keeping on-again, off-again rain showers around all day. A few pockets of heavy rainfall are certainly possible, but most of the rain will be light.
Temperatures will struggle to warm up much today due to cloudy skies and rain. We’ll only warm from the upper 40s this morning into the mid 50s this afternoon.
Most of the rain will be moving out after 6PM this evening and we could even see a few breaks in the clouds before you head to bed. In all, most spots will get between 0.2” and 0.5” of rainfall with a few overachievers (and underachievers) here and there.
It gets chilly Saturday night, but temperatures stay well above the seasonal ‘normal’ low of 36ºF. Expect temps on Sunday morning in the neighborhood of 42ºF to 47ºF with a fair sky. Clouds thicken again through the day, but it will get warmer with a south wind (highs in the 60s). Another round of light, scattered showers develops by sunset Sunday, and we’ll keep at least some low-end chance of rain in the forecast from Sunday through the first part of the week.
Wet for the week ahead: A thirty percent chance of rain for Monday and Tuesday should tell you two things: that rain is possible but that it won’t be widespread or continuous. Occasional scattered showers with some weak, fast-moving disturbances keeps the weather ‘unsettled,’ but it will get warm: highs in the lower and middle 70s.
The next ‘good’ chance of a soaking comes Wednesday and Thursday. A slow-moving cold front takes nearly two days to approach and pass through the region; that keeps the rain coming for nearly 48 hours. Some flooding is possible with as much as two to three inches of rainfall in the forecast.
