While it's wet to start the week, we'll be bless with wonderful weather Tuesday. But enjoy it while it's here, because cold, wintry weather returns by Wednesday.
WHAT TO EXPECT
As of lunchtime Monday, February 2020 became the second-wettest February on record at the McGhee Tyson Airport. It appears, as of now, that the record total from last year will remain out of reach.
For the rest of this evening, locally heavy rainfall will be possible, eventually becoming more isolated during the overnight hours. An additional quarter to a half inch of rainfall is possible. Look for temperatures to remain steady in the mid to upper 40s.
Tuesday starts with spotty showers, but that tapers off midday, leaving us with some peeks of afternoon sunshine. We'll warm up to around 62 degrees, so enjoy the added sunshine and warmth for the afternoon hours.
Showers move back in Wednesday, this time with colder air behind it. Wednesday's high will top out in the lower 50s, which looks to be midday as of now. As temperatures fall, we'll see those cold rain showers turn to a few snow showers along the plateau and up in the Smokies through Wednesday night and Thursday morning. Dusting will be possible along the plateau while an inch or two may fall in the Smokies.
We'll end the week with highs in the low 40s and lows in the mid to upper 20s. Some more scattered showers moving through Friday and Saturday give us another chance to see some spotty snow showers.
