A return flow of moisture from the Gulf will make Sunday a little more humid. There will be a warm front parked north of Middle Tennessee. The area of high pressure should keep the warm front from raining on our Mother’s Day here.
An area of low pressure in the plains will move eastward next week. A cold front our ahead of it will move our way. It most likely will not pass through Middle Tennessee until Wednesday. The week will be unsettled with on and off chances of rain. There could even be enough instability mid week of some thunderstorms. We’ll keep you posted on the possibility of anything severe.
Happy Mother’s Day!
