Thunderstorms Likely

Expect rain all over Tennessee today as a slow-moving cold front works it's way across our state. Highs will only reach the lower 70's today under cloudy skies...low tonight in the lower 50's and sunshine returns for Friday with much lower humidity and highs around 74°...very nice! The weekend promises sunny skies both days with a high in the lower 80's on Saturday and upper 80's on Sunday.
