Good evening Tennessee Valley and a very happy Saturday! Temperatures performed well this afternoon, under a sunny sky many saw a umber that was well above average in the upper 50s and even a couple lower 60s.
With high pressure sitting to our SW we’ll continue this trend through much of the day Sunday. Under a sunny sky I expect high temperatures to once again finish in the lower and even close to mid-60s. Keep in mind this is early January and we should only be talking about highs in the lower 50s.
From here we can turn our attention to Monday and Monday night. There is a developing system well to the north in Canada that looks to make a trip eastward through the day. It’ll take its time though so most of the day looks again to be pleasant with high temperatures again in the low 60s across much of the Tennessee Valley also featuring mostly sunny skies with increasing clouds through the afternoon. Now with this low that is well north this is also an associated cold front. That cold front is expected to come through the Tennessee Valley Monday night and early Tuesday morning. Ahead of this front is a small opportunity for a few light showers. Both the GFS and EURO are in decent agreement that rain amounts will be less than 0.1”.
While the cold front will come through Monday night and Tuesday morning, we wont feel much of a change until Wednesday. 850Mb maps had no problem allowing CAA to control the forecast. This will prevent temperatures from getting much higher than the mid-40s on Wednesday, and the GFS was even suggesting that high will occur around 06Z. From there CAA keeps high temperatures in the low 40s for highs and dipping down in the upper 20s for lows through the remainder of the week. The best part about the extended forecast would be the sunny skies expected Wednesday and Thursday.
