Saturday’s weather was pretty standard for the Upper Cumberland in mid-late November with nothing out of place to discuss.

Our Sunday will be a bit of a different story as a cold front (these seem to be coming every few days, it feels like) will bring rain to the area during the afternoon hours.

For those heading to church in the morning, we should be dry for all morning services, and most areas should get through lunch afterwards just fine.

Future Radar – Sunday Afternoon

Widespread showers will arrive during the afternoon hours. This system will be moving from northwest to southeast, so those in Lafayette will see rain first with Crossville seeing rain a couple hours later closer to sunset.

Instability with this system is low, so we’re only expecting rain. That said, a rumble of thunder or two can’t be ruled out.

Rain will clear out of most areas by midnight, setting us up for a dry and colder Monday with highs only spanning the 40s.

We’ll remain dry for a few days with mid to upper 50s returning by Wednesday ahead of yet another cold front that will move through on Thanksgiving.

Unfortunately, it does look like we’ll see scattered rain showers around on Thanksgiving, so feasts and activities will probably be limited to indoors (it’s going to be in the 50s anyway, so indoors is the preferable location, regardless of rain.

This system will clear out between late Thursday night and early Friday morning. If enough moisture remains in place as cold air moves in, a few snow flakes can’t be ruled out, especially in the higher elevations of the Plateau. No impacts expected.

Black Friday through the upcoming weekend looks dry and cold.
