Chilly Day Ahead

WEDNESDAY WEATHER: Cool, damp day ahead for your Wednesday as highs will struggle to reach the lower 50's under a cloudy sky. There is a chance for light showers today. We start this morning in the lower 40's across most of the region. Patchy low fog is giving folks some trouble especially near bodies of water such as rivers, lakes, etc. The fog should dissipate by 9 a.m. Take a warm jacket with you today as temperatures will feel a bit on the chilly side.

THE LOOK AHEAD: We should finally clear out on Thursday with highs reaching the upper 50's for most of us. Friday and Saturday will be mostly sunny with highs around 60° with rain returning for Sunday. Thanksgiving week appears (at this point) to be a bit on the chilly side across Tennessee. More on that in the next few days.
