A low pressure system will develop over the Tennessee River Valley during the day on Thursday and will ignite a cold front. While the cold front will be weak, it will be able to tap into Gulf of Mexico moisture. A series of disturbances will ride along the front, starting Friday night.
The wettest/cloudiest day will be Saturday. The biggest problem caused by the weather system will be the amount of rain it produces. The threat of any type of severe weather is virtually not existent.
This storm system will not reduce drought conditions. On average, only about a third of an inch of rain will fall across the area. A few, isolated locations may receive between one half and an inch of rainfall. Large, beneficial rainfall is unlikely to occur during the remainder of this year.
