Skies clear out overnight, cooling quickly

A few light rain showers moved through East Tennessee Monday afternoon, with little impact on the region. The roads did become slick for a spell, and some of the side streets may have been slippery due to the fallen leaves, but overall this rain event was fairly weak.

We are looking at a clearing scenario as we move through the overnight time frame Monday into Tuesday, with temps dipping into the middle to upper forties.

Tuesday will be dry and cool as most of the moisture will be scoured out of the area. The high on Tuesday should be close to the middle sixties in most Valley locations, and lower sixties to upper fifties at higher elevations. Looks like a clear and chilly night Tuesday into Wednesday, allowing the mercury to dip into the low forties.

Wednesday will be sunny and cool with highs in the low to middle sixties.

We may drop below the 40 degree mark overnight Wednesday into Thursday, then start a gradual warming trend as we close out the week and head into the weekend. Overall...clear and cool weather will be with us through the rest of the week and into the weekend.
