Short term (today through tomorrow)
Just a few lingering showers in far southeast tennessee early this
morning, expect them to continue to decrease in coverage. With the
front to our south and winds blowing from the south over the front
we should see continued cloudy conditions today. This will keep
temperatures near or cooler than what we saw yesterday with high
temperatures expected to be in the low 80's across much of the
eastern tennessee valley.
Expect another round of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, with
the highest chances being in southeast tennessee closer to the
front. Pwat values are still very high across much of the area, so
there still remains the threat of heavy downpours with late day
convection. Expect coverage to be pretty isolated which will
hopefully mean that any flooding threat also remains isolated.
Cloudy weather will continue into the overnight hours leading to
mild temperatures as we head into tomorrow.
Long term (Sunday through Saturday)...
upper troughing will take hold across the north central and eastern
united states during the long term, with a couple of notable
disturbances affecting the southern appalachian region during that
time. The first will be a shortwave trough moving east through
tennessee on Monday, followed by another affecting our area Tuesday
night into Wednesday. Showers and thunderstorms will accompany both
disturbances, but the one on Wednesday will feature a stronger cold
front that will bring some relief from the heat in the form of
cooler temperatures and notably drier air.
Infrared satellite imagery shows an area of disturbed weather just
off the east texas and louisiana coastline this morning. This is the
far southern extent of the trough that will swing through eastern
tennessee on Monday. Expect fairly widespread showers on Monday as|
this gets pulled north out of the gulf and across the southern
appalachian region. May be a bit of a break in the rain chances on
Tuesday as the forecast area lies between the departing trough and
the incoming front for late Tuesday night into Wednesday. Did leave
some chance pops in the forecast but would not be surprised to see
Tuesday be dry for most areas. The cold front arrives early
Wednesday, with rain chances declining quickly during the afternoon
hours. Behind the front, dry and cooler weather is expected to
finish out the week and first part of the weekend.
Temperatures on Monday may wind up being the coolest of the week due
to the widespread rain and cloud cover expected. Guidance suggests
highs in the 70s most everywhere, with perhaps the northern valley
breaking into the 80s before the rain arrives in earnest. Some
models say low 70s in the south, which would be well below normal.
Trended the forecast in this direction, but am still warmer than
guidance especially in the southern valley locations. Temps rebound
back into the 80s for the remainder of the week, but with the caveat
that it will be notably drier and thus much more comfortable.
Overnight lows in the 50s to low 60s are expected Wednesday night

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
