Meteorologist Mark’s Wx Discussion
The only interesting weather to really speak of doesn’t arrive until the end of next week. Even then, it’s looking more and more like the same area of high pressure that will bring us unseasonably warm weather to start our work week will be so slow to move out that it spares us bad storms from the next storm system. That, of course, remains to be seen but I wouldn’t be surprised to see things play out in that way. I’ll keep an eye on that!
Regardless of that high, the pattern does become more unsettled by the end of the week and we could use the rain. Things dry out fast this time of year!
Meanwhile, enjoy the unseasonably warm temps to come this week!

Today’s Tennessee Weather
Sunny skies will stretch from one end of the state to the other by day’s end, as clouds break up and clear out from west to east on this Sunday. Temps will respond nicely to that sunshine, warming into the 70s for folks across West Tennessee and near 70 for Middle and East Tennessee. Clouds will take a bit longer to move out of the Kingsport area of upper eastern Tennessee, leading to temps holding in the lower 60s there.

Today’s National Weather Map
The greatest weather threat today comes in the form of a wildfire danger across much of Arizona and northern Arizona. That threat spreads a bit into surrounding areas. Low humidity and gusty winds will fuel that danger. Very heavy snow is expected across parts of the Sierra Nevada mountains of California. Elsewhere, unsettled weather should lead to low-impact weather conditions.
The drought monitor is updated each Thursday.
It was during this week in April of 1972 that Apollo 16 astronaut John Young drove the “rover” to its final parking place. Charles Duke and John Young used the Lunar Roving Vehicle to explore the Descartes highlands.
Incidentally, when we get back to the Moon the rover is expected to still be in good driving condition. How cool to be the first astronaut to drive it around again!?
