Several rounds of showers and thunderstorms remain in the forecast which will cause the flooding threat to continue across the Tennessee Valley.
This latest round of shower activity is thanks to a couple of different frontal systems that will eventually move through the Tennessee Valley.
Wednesday will be warm, but scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible all afternoon. High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the low 70s. An average high for mid-January is 51°.
A cold front will move through Wednesday night which will bring a temporary drying pattern and a break from the extreme January warmth.
Our next system develops west on Friday and brings southerly flow and WAA back to the Tennessee Valley. This means rain returns for Friday and the first half of the weekend.
This upper-level system comes with a large cold front that will move through Saturday afternoon and evening.
This cold front means Winter will finally make its arrival in the Tennessee Valley. This comes at the not most opportune time, as many will have Monday off thanks to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
