Joe’s Forecast

joeSunny, but still cool

High pressure will continue to gradually build into our area. After some morning clouds and fog, even some patchy frost depending on your location, we will clear out nicely by the afternoon hours. Mostly sunny skies expected with temperatures running on the order of around 5 to 10 degrees below normal. Highs will be able to climb into the lower 60′s, thanks to those golden rays of sunshine.

Frost sensitive plants may need to be brought indoors or at least covered up tonight.
Joe’s BRRRR’ Alert has been issued across East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia from 4am until 9am Friday morning. Mostly clear skies will allow for radiational cooling to take place overnight. Temperatures will tumble into the lower and middle 30′s.  Build a fire, have the extra blankets and/or make sure you clean out your vents before turning on the heat.

You’ll need to uncover those plants before leaving for work and/or school, as we are expecting a full day of warmer sunshine ahead for your Friday afternoon. Highs in the middle and possibly upper 60′s.

After a seasonably mild day, expecting low temperatures to likely fall to near 40 degrees. Just because it won’t be as “cold” doesn’t mean it’ll be a heat wave.  Yes, it’s autumn and a crisp Friday night expected on the gridiron, so grab the hot beverages and blankets as you head out to the grandstands.

The daily warming trend continues, not only for the upcoming weekend, but into the middle of next week as well.

Expecting highs in the 70′s Monday through Wednesday of next week.

Better enjoy the quiet weather while you still can, as changes could arrive by the start of November.
