Plenty of clouds cover the bright blue this afternoon but there’s not a whole lot of action with them.
Radar depicts just a few isolated showers widely scattered north of I-40.
Most of the region…in the clear. The main impact from these clouds are shown on the temperature map.
Upper 50s to upper 60s have been steady since late morning, running about ten degrees cooler than average for this time in late September. After a long summer stretch of extreme heat, this is a welcomed treat by many! The cherry on top? Humidity has been out of our hair. Dew point values in the upper 40s to lower 50s is a very dry and comfortable place to be.
Outdoor plans are a two thumbs up and highly recommended this evening. You may want to grab a light jacket since it will still be on the cooler side in the lower 60s but you can leave the umbrella at home.
An upper level system keeps spotty showers and storms in the forecast on Friday, mainly during the afternoon and mainly for areas north of the I-40 corridor. Many spots will dodge the rain but just keep an eye to the sky if you do have outdoor plans. You can download our FREE ‘WSMV’ app to monitor the radar at any given time yourself.
Temperatures hop back on a warming trend in the days ahead. Lower 70s on Friday will transition into seasonable upper 70s by Sunday and Monday. Middle 80s return by mid-week — all accompanied by plenty of sunshine. Here’s a peak at the next seven days and what I’ll be going more in depth with at 4 today.
