Forecast Last Updated at Saturday, October 22, 2016 at 7:06AM

A Chilly Saturday

Today will be another chilly one with gusty winds, and temperatures that don’t rise out of the 50s during the day. A few sprinkles or even snow flurries will affect the higher elevations early on. Conditions improve considerably for Sunday with a 15 degree temperature rebound, less wind and clear blue skies. There will be some patchy frost early in the day, however. Temperatures spike on Monday ahead of a dry cold front, then cool off a bit behind the front. By Thursday a rapidly moving storm system of Pacific origin may bring some rainfall to the region.

The RaysWeather.Com 2016-17 Winter Fearless Forecast was released Saturday morning--average to slightly above normal temperatures; less than average snow.

Forecast Discussion

Northwest flow will keep it chilly and windy over the region today. Consider this a dry run for your winter wardrobe. Clouds will be persistent right along the Tennessee line and across the higher elevations this morning, where there will be some morning sprinkles and even a few snow flurries. Generally sunny conditions are expected elsewhere.

Sunday’s weather will be much better with sunny skies for everyone and a 15 degree temperature rebound. That said, with lighter winds, sheltered valleys stand a good chance of experiencing a few hours of frost early in the day.

A dry cold front comes through on Monday. Downslope winds will lead to a temperature spike during the day, with cooler albeit sunny conditions to follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.

By Thursday a fast moving storm system of Pacific origin will approach from the west. It’s looking a little wetter than it did yesterday, and a chance of rain has been added to the forecast for parts of Thursday and Friday. There is still plenty of uncertainty on the strength and timing of the system, but I think we’d all agree that rain would be a good thing at this point.
