One More Sunny Day

**Monday Morning Notes**
Much of the same type of weather like the past several days. Temperatures are expected to go above 80° once again. This is the 5th day in a row! Our pattern changes for the rest of the week as a series of rain systems will move across Tennessee. Get ready for an active week. Highs will be mainly in the 70's with lows mainly in the 50's...not too bad.
