If you've got outdoor things that are easier to do when it's not cold, you might want to try to get them done this weekend. Above normal temperatures should continue through the weekend. Skies then clear out for Sunday afternoon with a warmer than average afternoon to close out the weekend.
With clouds and rain, temperatures will hover in the 40s most of the day, with highs peaking in the very low 50s. Most highs by the second half of the week will struggle to reach the freezing mark! High temperatures should be in the 50s those two days.
While the astronomical winter season starts on Dec. 21, the meteorological winter season begins on Dec. 1 and runs through the end of February, because December, January and February are the three coldest months of the year. The best chance to see a passing shower will be between 5-11pm.More news: Amid disastrous coaching search, Tennessee reportedly fires athletic director John Currie
The National Weather Service said rain on Monday could include a thunderstorm, then finish up with a slight chance of snow early Tuesday.
Sunshine and high temperatures in the 50s are forecast both Saturday and Sunday, before rain moves into the area Sunday night, followed by much colder weather. It will turn much colder and potentially stormy too. Winds will stay light out of the south southwest all day long, which should keep wind chills from becoming overly harsh. We will see a dry and seasonable day with highs in the lower 40s. A few snow/rain showers may be possible as well due to a lingering front offshore and waves riding along it. Highs on Wednesday are only in the lower 60s.
