Another Dry Day....

Well folks another dry day is in store for East Tennessee.  Today expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower to mid 80s.  Wednesday will bring mostly sunny skies once again with highs in the mid to upper 80s.  Temperatures will warm as the week goes on with upper level trough moving east and ridge building into the area.  This will also bring the return of moisture as we go into Friday.  Chances of precipitation will be low with mainly isolated afternoon showers and thunderstorms going into the weekend.  Most of these will be in the higher terrain.  The more interesting weather will be in the tropics where Tropical Depression Nine will continue to strengthen.

National Hurricane Center Watch/Warning and Forecast
This system is forecast to become a hurricane by early Thursday morning.  The ensemble GFS model shows this storm could affect the US by early next week.  So if you have plans along the east coast you should monitor this tropical system as it could affect your plans.
