Region Wide Rainfall Possible Monday

Published: 6.17.17 11:05am

Good Morning Folks! The past 24 hours have left another swath of rain across the southern ends of Jackson, Haywood and Macon counties, with a quarter inch average for most of the escarpment. Today we’ll find additional storms firing up and it will be slightly hotter than the past few days, however tomorrow looks to offer a bit more sunshine than previously forecasted, but we still are calling for pop up showers past midday. Monday now seems to be the wettest day when looking at today through Wednesday, as moisture is pushed into the region ahead of the front, prompting scattered thunderstorms to fire up across the area. Tuesday should push the front through the area and setup Wednesday and Thursday with mostly sunny skies, however temps will continue to hold at normal to slightly above normal levels today through next week. 

Sunny skies this morning will give way to scattered thunderstorms this afternoon, with temps pushing into the low 70’s – mid 80’s depending upon elevation. It seems the escarpment will once again boast the highest rainfall totals but the entire region should be in play, so don’t let your guard down when stepping out this afternoon. Temps tonight dip into the upper 50’s – mid 60’s once again with evening showers winding down by 9 – 11pm and then fog will setup across the lower elevations. Sunday keeps moisture around, however dry air may filter in from the NW and this would bring in additional sunshine to the area, delaying shower development a bit till the mid afternoon hours. Coverage will be like Wednesday in that showers will pop up, fizzle out and clouds linger into the evening hours. Temps hit the low 70’s – low 80’s past midday and dip into the low – mid 60’s overnight into Monday with mostly cloudy skies overhead. 

Monday should bring us partly sunny – mostly cloudy skies with temps only reach the upper 60’s – upper 70’s and this is mainly due to the thick cloud cover and afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Most of the region will pick up a quarter – half inch of rain or more as the front approaches from the west, with showers taking most of the night to wind down and this will keep temps to the low – mid 60’s. 

Tuesday through Thursday will disrupt our current pattern slightly we deal with partly cloudy skies and isolated thunderstorms Tuesday but then sunny skies Wednesday and Thursday. Temps rise to the low 70’s – low 80’s Tuesday but max out to the low 70’s – mid 80’s Thursday. 

Overall, still muggy and warm today through Sunday but soggy by Monday with temps slightly cooler and then a slight change toward drier conditions Tuesday into the middle of next week. ENJOY!
