Today – Windy and Warm High: 68°
Hold on to your hats! A Wind Advisory remains in effect for our area until 6:00 pm this evening. Wind gusts could reach up to 35 mph.
Winds will be out of the south due to a surface high pressure to the east of us.
A surface low will dip down into our area today. Moisture will increase while a warm front develops to our east. Clouds will gradually increase during the day.
There will be no rain in the forecast today since this system is fairly weak. Once the evening arrives we will see a mostly cloudy sky.
Enough instability will be in place during the evening hours for showers to increase across our area.
(Editor’s Note: HRRR (see below) gives us a little more hope than the NAM4 of a rain-free Friday evening. Not expecting a washout, but don’t be surprised if you see a few sprinkles.)
You will hear some hear pitter patter on your roofs while you are in your bed.
Saturday – Showers Linger High: 67°
Showers will linger into the morning hours on Saturday. We may even hear a few rumbles of thunder due to the increased instability.
We will be a couple of degrees cooler in some locations due to the increased cloud cover. Winds out of the south will settle down on Saturday. The warm front will stay situated over the Tennessee Valley during the weekend. The rain is kind of stationary during the overnight hours on Friday into Saturday morning.
Most of the rain will be to our south when you are headed out to lunch.
Rain will increase once again in the afternoon hours on Saturday. The pesky clouds will stick around during the day.
Sunday – More Rain High: 65°
A disturbance will move north of us over the Ohio River Valley and accelerate east during the day on Sunday. Temperatures will cool down slightly in the mid 60s.
As the disturbance moves east, we will see rain in the morning and afternoon.
Thunderstorms may be in our area during the lunchtime hours. Not anticipating any severe weather on Sunday.
Models show most of the rain tapering off overnight on Sunday into Monday morning. There will still be some isolated showers around our area on Monday.
Rain totals will be near half an inch through the weekend.
Extended: A cold front will send a cold shot of air from the north on Monday. Temperatures will tumble into the mid 50s under a mostly cloudy sky on Monday. Winds will switch from south to north early week. A disturbance from the Gulf will move across Mississippi and Alabama late Monday into Tuesday. This will bring rain into our area Tuesday. We will keep you updated on the track of this surface low.
