After a beautiful day yesterday, we see a return to clouds and rain today. A cold front is located in western Tennessee right now. Showers and the few thunderstorms ahead of it are making their way into the region as I type this. There were already a few sprinkles on my way to work this morning and the clouds to the east were very ominous looking. This system has weakened greatly from yesterday, where it produced multiple tornadoes and a line of severe thunderstorms across the central portion of the country.
Rain showers will persist throughout today, and an isolated thunderstorm is possible. Precipitation will taper off in the evening and rainfall totals will not be very impressive.
The front will cross the region and then move to our south, where it will become stationary by early tomorrow. Thursday will be cooler, but partly sunny during the day. High pressure will wedge down the entire east coast, bringing the possibility of some light showers Thursday night as the front begins to move back to the north. These showers will last into Friday, where they will be accompanied by very cool temperatures. Highs will struggle to reach the low 50’s.
Saturday will be a transition day as we’ll see partly sunny skies, with a slight chance for a shower in the first half of the day. Temperatures will warm up nicely into the low 70’s. Sunday through the middle of next week looks great, featuring a return to sunshine and 70 degree temperatures.
