This week had provided the Tennessee Valley with fantastic weather, but all good things must come to an end. Enjoy this evening, because rain moves in by Saturday. We say goodbye to the clear blue sky from this morning and trade it in for cloud cover by tonight. Clouds will gradually increase through the rest of the day. Temps will reach the lower 60s this afternoon, but only fall to the upper 30s overnight due to cloud cover. We stay dry today.
Spotty showers will move in to the Tennessee Valley by Saturday afternoon. We’re not talking about a washout of a day, but it’s not the best for any outdoor plans. Periodic light to moderate showers will come and go through Sunday morning. By Sunday afternoon, we will be dry and we will be cooling down. Aside from rain chances this weekend, expect a mostly cloudy to overcast sky, and breezy winds up to 20 mph. Highs this weekend will stay in the 50s due to lack of sunshine.
Next week as high pressure settles into the region, we are going to get cold here in the Tennessee Valley. Perfect to get into the Christmas spirit, right? (: A breezy northerly wind Sunday night into Monday will feel like Jack Frost is blowing into town. Highs Monday won’t get out of the 40s. But hey, we will have sunshine!
Here’s a more in depth look at the temperatures we are expecting. I will say, I am forecasting a little optimistically here. We may be colder than this Monday – Wednesday. Expect highs in the 40s and lows in the 20s. We *warm* back up to the 50s by Wednesday. Right now, next week’s weather is looking quiet, and average or slightly above average temps will be back by the end of next week. As for any chance of a White Christmas in the Tennessee Valley- there is no chance. Rejoice or pout accordingly!
After this weekend’s rain chance, we are calm, cold and quiet. Much cooler air blows in with breezy winds Sunday and Monday. Sunshine will be back after a gloomy weekend, and we will eventually warm back up by the end of next week.
