Sunshine returns today! So will the 60s beginning tomorrow. Rain chances late week.

It was another active weather day on Monday across the Tennessee Valley with more widespread showers and storms even the afternoon, some of which even had some hail! Then, gusty winds in the afternoon and overnight and even some snow showers over parts of middle Tennessee! It’s been an active past few days, but that storm system is off to the east and moving away early this Tuesday morning. Temperatures areawide as of the 3:00AM hour are still above freezing, into the mid to upper 30s areawide. They will probably drop a couple more degrees before sunrise. However, with road temperatures areawide above freezing and these gusty winds of 20+ mph continuing to dry the roadways, we don’t expect any travel problems from icy spots this morning in the areas that do briefly get down to near or just below freezing.

Clouds are clearing out quickly early this morning, and this sets us up for a beautiful sunny day for our Tuesday. Temperatures will climb into the low to mid 50s across the area despite the sunshine, but those temperatures are within a couple of degrees of what is normal for this part of February in the Tennessee Valley. Skies stay clear tonight, and as our winds settle down, temperatures late in the overnight and toward sunrise Wednesday morning drop into the upper 20s to lower 30s for lows.

Weather turns milder for the rest of the work week, with low to mid 60s for highs Wednesday through Friday. Clear skies stay with us for Wednesday, and that means great weather if you have plans Wednesday evening for Valentine’s Day. High pressure begins to shift east of us on Thursday as a cold front gradually approaches from the northwest. We’re still dry though, and there will still be some sun. Southerly to southwesterly winds will be stronger, and this will lead to temps in the mid 60s, if not the upper 60s in spots. That cold front brings showers to the area Friday afternoon and especially Friday night, and then it’s a turn to colder weather (but nothing outrageously cold for this time of year) as we head into the weekend before beginning another moderating trend early next week. Typical rollercoaster weather here for late winter in the Tennessee Valley!
