Clouds and Showers Persist in the Region this Evening

Rain showers have drifted a bit further west than originally anticipated, and they have persisted in the region a bit longer as well. The high temperature was only 65 this afternoon at McGhee Tyson due to the lingering cloud cover and spotty shower activity. Look for the showers to taper off as the evening moves along and the skies should be clear after the midnight hour.

Sunrise services will be clear and cool Sunday with the temperature at 7am in most areas around fifty degrees. The rest of Easter Sunday will be sunny and warm with highs in the middle seventy degree range.

Monday looks dry to start with a few clouds, but the clouds move in as the day moves along Monday ahead of some stormy weather slated to arrive Tuesday.

Dry and mild weather Wednesday and Thursday.
