The Weather Authority

Rain exits the Tennessee Valley this morning! The rain is over, but get ready to freeze literally!

It will be a blustery day for the region on Monday thanks to a strong northerly breeze sustained at 10-15 mph, gusts of 20 mph will be possible. This will keep temperatures into the low 50s across the area, with wind chill values in the upper 30s to low 40s possible. If you are heading out make sure you bundle up and you will want to do the same Tuesday morning!

Bitter cold Monday night

Alright Tennessee Valley, it is going to be a bitter cold Monday night into Tuesday morning! Mainly clear skies, calming winds, and the cold air in place will help temperatures fall back into the 20s. Some of the colder valley areas could even fall into the low 20s! A warm jacket, gloves, and a hot cup of coffee with be necessary Tuesday Morning!

It is very important to make sure pets are brought indoors to protect them from the cold. You will also want to wrap any outdoor pipes to prevent them from bursting. Temperatures are forecasted to remain on the cooler side through the remainder of the week. Highs are expected to only reach the 50s, to near 60 by Thanksgiving.

High pressure will be in control of the region Monday through Wednesday, leading to dry weather and some sunshine. Cloud cover will begin to build in Wednesday afternoon ahead of our next weather system moving into the region.
