Last week offered a much needed stretch of dry weather here in the Tennessee Valley! That dry air lasted through Saturday, but rain chances slowly start to climb again through Sunday.
The chance of any one spot getting rain Sunday is pretty low – around 30% – but you should be ready for some sprinkles here and there Sunday.
Despite the cloudy skies, we’ll still warm up nicely! High temperatures will rise into the upper 60s and lower 70s this afternoon, with the help of a breezy southwest wind up to 15 mph.
The cold front approaching us Sunday moves in Monday morning, bringing a better chance at scattered showers and a few thunderstorms. Rain is most likely to come down between 5AM and 12PM Monday, but some showers could linger through Monday afternoon. Rainfall totals won’t be terribly impressive; 0.5″ – 1.0″ comes down between both Sunday and Monday.
Behind the cold front we’ll get a quick shot of cooler air for Tuesday. High temperature drop back into the 50s Tuesday, while lows drop back into the 30s Tuesday night/Wednesday morning. Most of us won’t quite make it below freezing Wednesday morning, except our normal ‘cold spots’ like the higher terrain areas of Sand and Lookout Mountain.
Beyond Tuesday, our weather goes back to steady and comfortable! Highs return to the 60s by Wednesday and stay there through the end of the week.
