A LOCAL 8 WEATHER ALERT is in effect until 3 p.m. as the heaviest rain moves through our area to start the day, dropping 1 to 2 inches of rain in our area. Watch for standing water and runoff issues, and be careful on the roads. A High Wind Warning is also in effect until 1 p.m .for the Smokies, for gusts around 65 miles per hour.
Monday's high is technically from the overnight, when we reached the low 70s. Temperatures cooled with the heaviest rain, and we'll have a slight rebound back into the low 60s this afternoon. We have a cool breeze, with gusts slowly backing off.
Tonight will cool to around 48 degrees, with a Southwesterly breeze up to 10 miles per hour.
Tuesday will be partly cloudy most of the day, with some extra passing clouds bring in a stray shower possibility. We'll only warm up to around 61 degrees!
Wednesday will be even colder, from start to finish. Tuesday night's low, the starting temperature for Wednesday, will be around 39 degrees. We'll only warm up to around 55 degrees Wednesday! Then back down the upper 30s Wednesday night to Thursday morning.
We'll start warming up those highs again Thursday and Friday, but another cold front will move showers in to our area Saturday and then push those temperatures back down. Warm Halloween costumes are needed this year!
Have a wonderful weekend!
