StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking a cold front that will slide into the region late Sunday. This front will bring scattered showers and thunderstorms to the area Sunday afternoon through early Monday morning. The best chance of rain will be late Sunday afternoon through the evening. A few storms could produce brief downpours and gusty winds. Don't cancel any outdoor plans, but keep an eye to the sky and the radar on WCYB.com or the StormTrack 5 mobile app.
Behind this front, a large area of high pressure will settle in and become the main weather feature for next week. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny Monday through Friday. Humidity levels will be low with cool nights and warm days... perfect weather to generate fall color! A few more clouds are expected by late week as a storm system develops to our southeast.
Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s through Sunday. Cooler Monday through Friday with highs in the mid to upper 70s. Lows will be in the lower to middle 50s through Sunday night. Chilly nights are ahead next week with lows in the middle 40s to lower 50s.
This is the last weekend of summer. Autumn will officially arrive at 10:29 Monday evening. The cooler air will be arriving right on time!
