First Alert Forecast: Unsettled pattern ahead...
Rain Chances Return As Pattern Switches Up (Source: WLBT)

Temperatures will be warming up today ahead of our next cold front! Although a stray shower will be possible late, anticipate mainly dry conditions through the afternoon and evening as temperatures top out in the low 70s.

Our cold front will bring a line of showers and storms into the area by Wednesday morning’s commute, working eastward & exiting the region by tomorrow afternoon. Our severe threat is low, but we’ll have to watch for the potential of isolated damaging wind gusts (and a tornado can’t be ruled out at this time).

Fortunately, this system will exit the area to the east in time for Thanksgiving and only a stray shower chance south is in the forecast for the holiday. Temperatures will be just above average with partly cloudy skies.

Another system will bring the likelihood of showers and storms each day from Friday through Sunday and several inches of rainfall are anticipated to fall in this time frame. A few gusty storms will also be possible! MUCH colder conditions will work in by next week... Stay tuned for frequent updates on our more active pattern!

First Alert Forecast: cold start, mild finish Tuesday; storms return Wednesday
