Weather Summary:

We are tracking high pressure in the StormTrack 5 Weather Center. The high has settled into the southern Appalachians with partly cloudy skies today.

We have the potential for frost this morning with chilly temperatures. A Frost Advisory until 9am for most of northeast Tennessee and southwest Virginia.

A low heading onto the Great Lakes today will trail a cold front south and head for the Tri-Cities tonight. We will see clouds increase with a slight chance for a shower late tonight.

StormTrack 5 meteorologists are tracking the front as it sweeps across the area and brings a 30 percent chance of rain on Tuesday. The better chance will be from the Tri-Cities and north with less of a chance south of the viewing area.

The front should be south of the region on Wednesday. This may linger a very slight chance of rain into early Wednesday. The clouds should depart quickly and we should see quite a bit of sunshine by Wednesday afternoon.

With the passing of the front, we will experience a chilly day Wednesday and Thursday with cold nights. We may even see another frost chance on Thursday night.

High pressure will again become the main feature Thursday through Sunday with tons of sun and temperatures warming back to near normal.

Highs will be in the low to mid 60s today and Tuesday with upper 50s to low 60s Wednesday and Thursday. we expect to be back to the mid to upper 60s Friday through Sunday. Lows will be near 40 to the mid 40s tonight and Tuesday night with low to mid 30s Wednesday night through Friday night and low 40s Saturday and Sunday night.
