Drying Out Tonight

Showers and thunderstorms developed on schedule this afternoon in a warm and unstable airmass ahead of an approaching cool front. A few of which were on the strong side with several reports of hail. Those will diminish tonight behind the front as cooler and drier air takes hold for a day. We'll stick with the cooler than normal theme for the rest of the week as a reinforcing front moves through Wednesday. However, it doesn't stay dry for too long, just better than recent memory.

It's my second favorite time of year (eclipsed only by Christmas!)... Merlefest week. It's four days of music on unbelievable scales for variety, quality, and just plain fun. Check the Lineup for details. Weather for the event looks very good overall... Temperatures will be cooler than average. Evenings will require blankets for comfort. Showers are possible Saturday--otherwise very nice. Here are the weather details in our Merlefest Hour-By-Hour Forecast.

Forecast Discussion

After a drier than average winter and early spring, we did a lot of catching up on year-to-date rain totals Sunday. Wow! Stream flooding was an issue in the usual places.

A warm front passed through to the northeast Sunday evening and now a cold front arrives tonight. This afternoon and early evening as the front moves through, scattered showers and thundershowers have redeveloped. A few of which have been on the rowdy side with heavy rain and small hail. Showers and storms diminish late this evening with partial clearing and patchy fog in the morning.

Tuesday, cooler air arrives behind the front with more sunshine and breezy conditions.

The next cold front gathers strength in the Ohio Valley late Tuesday. It will move across the Appalachians Wednesday evening producing scattered showers and thundershowers Wednesday afternoon and early evening.

Thursday, the front will be well to our south as high pressure builds into the Southeast. We'll have a dry cooler day.

Friday and Saturday, this front will move back to the north as a warm front as low pressure moves into Arkansas and West Tennessee. Exact timing is uncertain; for now, we held rain until Saturday (in spite of some modelling being faster with return moisture). Friday has increasing PM clouds. Then Saturday will be showery and very cool for late April.

Showers linger into Saturday night; hopefully exiting to the northeast by Sunday morning. Sunday has increasing sunshine but cooler than average temperatures.
