Good Tuesday to everyone across the Western Carolinas… this weather briefing is sponsored by Allstate Morgan Agency
An unsettled weather pattern continues across the region as Irma has transitioned itself into an extra-tropical cyclone. As of the noon hour Irma is centered both at the surface and aloft across Northern Alabama slowly moving northwest. This is continuing to pump in tropical moisture at the low levels of the atmosphere. Upslope flow will wring out additional periods of showers and drizzle especially across the Foothills, however some drier air may finally win out later in the day to give us a few breaks in the overcast.
High’s today will be a bit higher than yesterday, in the upper 60’s. Tonight we will have variable amounts of cloudiness with mid to upper 50’s. On Wednesday low pressure should move into Western Tennessee and Kentucky, that may allow less influence to our weather. So expect some improvement as the sun will appear in most spots allowing temperatures to rebound into the 70’s.
The latter half of the week looks to remain somewhat unsettled as there are no strong fronts to help sweep out the residual tropical moisture. We will have a continue light southwest flow, that means rain chances don’t look particularly high but it won’t be total sunshine either. One thing that will recover are the temperatures as we could reach close to the 80 degree mark on Thursday and in the low to mid 80’s on Friday and Saturday.
