More Rain And Then A Cold Snap

Well folks the rain continues to plague the area with good chances of rain through Friday and small chances continue Saturday. Remember to monitor forecasts and information in case there are any warnings or watches prompted.

The next topic of discussion is the chance for a cold snap coming in by Saturday night. Expect low temperatures to be 10 to 15 degrees colder then lows tonight. Anyone with animals or plants should monitor the forecast for any changes in these temperatures as we near the end of the week. Also with some lingering moisture I would not rule out the chance of rain and snow mix in the higher elevations on Saturday night. Keep in mind that this is a long way away and we will need to continue fine tuning the forecast as the week progresses.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

Most of you across East Tennessee have seen your fair share of the wet stuff and looks like this week we will see plenty more. Looking at the 9:20 AM radar with surface analysis we can see a trof that has setup over the area. This will help the rain continue through much of the day. Right now it does appear this rain activity will be light and moderate. There are no flood watches or warnings out for this system at this time. The chances of rain decrease tonight into Tuesday with rain increasing again for Tuesday night through Friday. If you have any outdoor plans this week continue to monitor the forecast for changes as you get closer to your event.
