The rain really failed to materialize this afternoon, but the overcast sky kept us cooler than yesterday with highs only climbing into the upper 40s and lower 50s.
Just because it didn’t rain here, doesn’t mean it didn’t rain everywhere. Those along the coast have seen a rather wet end to the workweek. Aside from an isolated shower late tonight and early in the morning, I expect we’ll remain dry this weekend.
Saturday will feature a mostly cloudy sky and temperatures warming into the low 50s. Not bad as low 50s are seasonal for this time of year. Also, take note that tomorrow is the first day of February! Our average temperature climbs and our days get longer. Lastly, notice the average snowfall.
Sunday is Groundhog Day! Through the last five years, Phil has predicted three additional Winters and two early onsets of Spring. You can get all the details on Phil’s accuracy rate in regards to the Tennessee Valley by reading this fun article.
Not only is Sunday Groundhog Day, but it’s also Super Bowl Sunday. Weather-wise the forecast couldn’t be better. Beautiful weather for a morning run or hike.
The warmth on Super Bowl Sunday is just the beginning of an impressive warming trend that will last through the middle of next week.
With the warming trend will come the opportunity for rain and potentially a lot of it with even some thunderstorm activity possible next week.
