Good Tuesday everyone. Monday featured severe weather across parts of the region and now it’s time for the heavy rain to take over. This has the making of a classic November soaker into Wednesday.
We have a stalled out front across the Tennessee Valley with waves of low pressure moving along it. Rounds of heavy rain will continue to work across the same areas through Wednesday. Additional rainfall of 1″-3″ will be common around here and this could lead to local high water issues. I will have your tracking toys here in a bit.
Much colder air is going to stream in from northwest to southeast later Wednesday. Some of the models have been trying to get another wave of low pressure to form just to our southeast Wednesday night and early Thursday. The GFS is suggesting the possibility of some wet snows flying during this time…
That will be a nice shot of cold air moving in for a couple of days before our temps head back into the 50s for the weekend.
That’s when we await the next storm system to impact the region. Rain should arrive before the weekend is through and this takes us into another VERY wet period early Thanksgiving week. That may drop more heavy rain before a turn to colder.
Let’s get back to where we are now and your heavy rain tracking tools…
