Soggy first half of the week ahead

Moderate to heavy rainfall will hang with us through Wednesday as a frontal boundary stalls right over the top of us. A Southwesterly flow will keep pumping moisture in out of the gulf and lead to 2-4 inches of rain by Wednesday across East Tennessee & Southeastern Kentucky. Overnight Sunday into Monday expect widespread showers with 1-1.5 inches of rain overnight. Low tonight will be in the mid 50's. Monday be careful on your drive into work with moderate to heavy rain that will lead to a slow commute. Monday we should reach the low 60's throughout the region.
