The bulk of today's rain is behind us, with some showers and gusty winds the rest of today.

Cloudy, with scattered rain, so still some showers popping up and moving through at times. This is clearing Southwest to Northeast, and turning to isolated showers this evening into the overnight hours.

Wind Advisories are in effect for the Valley, and the Smokies, for gusts of 40 to 50 miles per hour at times. The Valley's alerts continue until 7 p.m. Monday, but the Smokies' alerts last until 11 a.m. Tuesday.

Overcast to mostly cloudy tonight, with isolated showers. The tops of the mountains could see some wintry mix showers. The low will be around 43 degrees for the Valley, with breezy conditions.

Clouds will slowly leave Tuesday, again Southwest to Northeast, so the Valley will be clearing for the late afternoon to early evening. Temperatures will top out in the low 50s again.

We'll have a chance to warm-up again Wednesday, into the low 60s. We'll have a mostly cloudy day, with isolated rain showers.

Thursday will also be mostly cloudy, but as colder air moves in, we'll only top out around 46 degrees. There will be isolated rain showers Thursday and that will be isolated snow showers, mainly in Southeastern Kentucky to Northeast Tennessee, Thursday night into Friday morning.

Friday will be chilly, in the low 40s, with isolated showers. That will change to isolated snow showers again Friday night, predominately Northeast Tennessee to Southeastern Kentucky.

The sunshine will be back Saturday, but a chilly day in the low 40s.

Have a great day!
