First Alert Forecast: Pattern change ahead!
Nice Weather Continues Through Mid-Week; Late Week Turns Unsettled (Source: WLBT)

Temperatures reached the low-mid 70s this afternoon under sunny skies, making for quite the spring-like day! Clear skies and dry conditions will persist through the evening hours, but will lead to a quick cool down... Overnight lows will drop to near 40°, so be sure to dress in layers heading out the door Wednesday morning.

As high pressure shifts east & our next cold front approaches the region out of the west tomorrow, our temperatures will lift back into the low-mid 70s Wednesday afternoon. All while cloud cover picks up throughout the day. A few sprinkles will be possible for the evening commute, but better rain chances won’t arrive until the overnight period. This front will hang around over the next couple of days and periods of rain will be possible through the end of the work week.

The front will lift and stall out to our NW Saturday and Sunday, allowing for rain to continue in our NW counties. Temperatures will be well-above average both in the mornings and afternoons and highs will almost reach 80° by Sunday!

Rain & thunderstorm chances increase for all of us Monday-Tuesday, eventually leaving us with up to 2-3″ of rain by the end of the 7-day forecast. Stay tuned for frequent forecast updates as our unsettled weather pattern arrives mid-week!
