First Alert Forecast: BIG forecast changes ahead!
Rain Chances Remain Elevated This Weekend (Source: WLBT)

It’s been an active day on radar! Showers and storms have been with us since this morning, but will finally decrease in intensity and coverage as we continue through the evening hours... We’ll be left with mainly dry and cloudy conditions for Saturday with morning lows in the low 50s and afternoon highs in the low 60s. Shower and storm coverage will increase once again into Sunday as our upper level low moves overhead. This will bring with it the likelihood of rain and the possibility of severe storms (mainly in our SE counties) as we wrap up the weekend.

Behind that system, strong winds will be bringing MUCH colder air into the region and our first freeze is likely as we start the month of December. Morning temperatures in the 20s for a couple of days in a row will feel frigid as wind chills could drop as low as the teens in some locations! Afternoons won’t improve much either as feels like temperatures may not exceed the 40s mid-week. Stay tuned for frequent updates as we get closer to next week!
