The cold front that brought strong to severe storms to some parts of northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia is pushing east of the Tri-Cities. The threat of severe storms has diminished, but some rain showers and possible thunder will still affect some areas overnight.
A few showers will linger into Sunday, especially in the morning. It will be breezy as well. Temperatures on Sunday will be rather cool...in the upper 50s to low 60s with partly to mostly cloudy skies.
Monday and Tuesday appear uneventful with partly cloudy skies, breezy conditions on Monday and temperature running well below average in the low to mid 60s.
Another disturbance will be responsible for periods of rain showers on Wednesday and Thursday with temperatures in the 60s. At this time, there doesn't appear to be a severe weather threat with that system.
Afterwards, Friday and Saturday look pleasant with a warm up on the way. High pressure will sit on top of the southeastern US, lending us to sunshine and temperatures in the 70s.
Recap: Highs in the 60s through Thursday...70s Friday and Saturday. Lows in the 50s tonight, near 40 Sunday night, 30s Monday night, and 40s through the remainder of the week.
Our average high is 70°, low 45°.
