More Rain on the Way
It will take an extra cup of coffee to get going on this gloomy Monday morning. A moist southeasterly flow today contributes to cloudy skies and spotty light rain or drizzle at times, especially along the Blue Ridge. Appreciable rainfall arrives tonight in advance of a quick moving cold front that passes through Tuesday. Showers end tomorrow afternoon followed by clearing skies Tuesday night. The remainder of the work week is mainly par for the course in late October. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our tent at Woolly Worm! We enjoyed talking to you.

The low level wind flow is backed (easterly component) ahead of a sharp cold front that moves into the Middle TN Valley this afternoon. Low clouds, patchy fog, and drizzle or spotty light rain is fair game at times especially along the Blue Ridge today where the upslope flow is most pronounced. Widespread showers arrive tonight and continue into early Tuesday afternoon until the front passes to our west. Skies clear at night.
Wednesday is briefly cooler and breezy behind the front. High pressure bubbles up from the south and makes an appearance Thursday and most of Friday. Temperatures will be seasonal for late October.
Low pressure develops in the northern Gulf Friday and joins forces with an approaching cold front this weekend. A widespread rain event is in the works for us during this time frame, but timing is somewhat an issue this morning. We are going with a slower idea that keeps rain at bay until late Friday night with showers continuing through the weekend. Note this is subject to change.
