Forecast Discussion

High pressure remains anchored in the Western Atlantic and extends into the Southeast. Being on the west side of this feature, we have a juicy flow from the Gulf and Atlantic. The result again today was increasing afternoon clouds and scattered storms. As the sun goes down, showers and storms will diminish quickly. Saturday will be drier with only isolated afternoon thundershowers. Both days are seasonally warm.

A front approaches from the west and north early next week. It will be near Memphis Sunday, Nashville Monday, near us Tuesday, and just to our south Wednesday. The result will be numerous storms Sunday afternoon, more clouds and occasional rain/storms Monday, scattered mostly PM showers (maybe a thundershower) Tuesday and Wednesday. Skies from Sunday afternoon through Wednesday will be generally cloudy. Morning sun will keep Sunday warm; however, the clouds will cap temperatures Monday through Wednesday.

By Thursday, with the front sagging south and washing out, we'll have at least a look at the sun and only an isolated shower possible. Temperatures warm back up after Thursday.
