Weather Forecast Saturday January 12, 2019

News

Good evening Tennessee Valley and a very happy Saturday! Temperatures failed to meet average highs this afternoon. The official high at HSV was only 49 degrees. Aside from that we’ve been dealing with some rather persistent rain that will continue to end west to east as we get into the evening and then through the overnight. 

An area of low pressure is sitting just to our north and will stay there as it continues to track east on Sunday. That could result in a little bit of return flow bringing some very light rain to the Tennessee Valley for the second half of the weekend. I don’t expect any of this would accumulate it would just be more of an annoyance. 

Monday will bring slight ridging to the Tennessee Valley, but for the most part we’ll be talking about zonal flow through the first half of the workweek. The good news here? We’ll remain dry Monday – Wednesday, and Tuesday and Wednesday look to include ample sunshine. 

Thanks to a developing system well out to the west southerly flow will also be on the increase Wednesday and Thursday. This will bring back the rain chances especially for the second half of the day Thursday, but mostly temperatures will be on the increase especially next Wednesday where high’s should be in the mid-50s. That aforementioned system will begin to push further east on Friday really ramping up the southerly flow in the Tennessee Valley. This will allow temperatures to warm into the lower 60s on Friday, but widespread rain will also move in and stick with us through much of the day Saturday. 

There is a cold front with this system, and the GFS and EURO seems confident that it will come through sometime Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening. 850mb temperatures plummet for next Sunday, but it does look like we’d remain dry.
