At 6 a.m. in Tennessee, temperatures range from 32° at both McMinnville and the Tri-Cities to 50° at the Memphis Int'l Airport. Currently, I have 38.1° on my home weather station.
We'll rebound nicely this afternoon to highs near 70° under sunny skies. A dry front will push through early Tuesday causing our temperatures to pull back a few degrees giving us highs in the lower and mid 60's. Rain enters the picture very late Thursday into Friday..but that is a few days away and we'll know more over the next couple of days.
