Warm, rainy, windy to start the week. Cold and dry late week.

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday.  Our weather is about to take a BIG turn.  We are going to have 2 rounds of heavy rain moving through the Tennessee Valley.  One moves through tonight.  The other will move through during your Wednesday morning commute.  We currently have WIND ADVISORIES and HIGH WIND WARNINGS in effect for this afternoon through the overnight.

Today, we will have clouds and wind building with a few isolated showers during the afternoon and evening hours.  Winds this afternoon will blow from the south at 10-20 mph.  We will hit a high of 63.  Tonight, Widespread rain will move through late this evening and last into the overnight.  The rain will be heavy at times.  I think we are looking at 1"-2" of rain tonight.  Winds tonight will blow from the south at 15-30 mph with higher wind gusts.

Tuesday will actually be fairly uneventful.  Most if not all of the rain will be off to the east, and the winds will die down a bit.  We will be mostly sunny with a warm high of 73 Tuesday afternoon.

Another round of rain and thunderstorms will move through Wednesday morning.  This will produce another round of heavy rain for the morning commute.  We will get another 1"-2" of rain as the low pressure moves through.  The rain will clear out late morning and we will see a high of 65 Wednesday afternoon.  

Much colder and drier air will move in Thursday.  We will start the day with temps in the mid to upper 30s.  We will stay cool in the afternoon with highs getting to 54.  Friday will be a bit cooler with the low starting out in the low 30s, and only getting to 52 in the afternoon. Both days will be sunny and dry.

The weekend will stay cool with lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s.  The chance for rain is up in the air as some models are showing a low moving through and bringing more rain.  Other models have the rain moving to our south.  Right now I will put the chance for rain at 30% for your Saturday and Sunday.
