March 14: Spring Preview

After a couple of chilly days temperatures will be on the rise. Today the high reached 50° after a morning low of 30°, both about 10 degrees below average for mid March.

Tonight will be chilly, but not quite as cold as last night.  Expect lows in the 30s.  Another area of high pressure shifts east of Tennessee tomorrow, that will give the mid state more of a southerly wind and that is a warm wind. That is why tomorrow will be much warmer. After a chilly start, we’ll have highs in the upper 60s.

The weekend won’t be a washout so don’t change outdoor plans, just remain in tune with the weather and have a plan B.
