The drought monitor was updated this morning, and it was not good news for the Tennessee Valley or for the rest of the Deep South. Abnormally dry conditions are growing more widespread across the Tennessee Valley, while drought conditions are growing worse and spreading out along and west of the Mississippi River Valley.

The good news is we have more rain on the way. It may not be enough, but every little bit helps. That rain will move in on Sunday. The storm system that will bring that rain is coming together over the western Gulf of Mexico and South Texas. Temperatures will trend warmer over the weekend as the rain approaches. Rainy periods can continue on Monday and Tuesday.

This evening will be clear. Temperatures will drop from 40s to 30s. Clouds will begin increasing after midnight. Low temperatures will be in the upper 20s. Friday will be mostly cloudy. Morning 30s will struggle to reach 40s, and our highs will only be in the mid-40s.
