Possible record warmth this week with rain chances on the increase

2-3 Records_1549248202917.jpg.jpg

The warming trend that started over the weekend will continue, BUT rain chances will be entering the picture, as well.

On Monday, scattered showers will be moving in during the day, with temperatures expected to be in the mid-60s, shy of the record of 75, set in 1927. 

More scattered showers on Tuesday are expected to keep temps in the upper 60s, BUT any peeks of sunshine could scare the record of 72°, set in 2008.  A front will push southward but go stationary just to our north keeping us in the warm temperatures.

That front then pushes north as a warm front leaving Middle TN and south KY in likely 70 degree temperatures.  However, this will come with scattered thunderstorm chances.

With enough sunshine between scattered storm chances, record highs could be tied or broken on Wednesday and/or Thursday.

Finally, Thursday night a cold front brings a line of storms, a few of which could be strong, followed by colder temperatures for the end of the week, ending the early February warm snap.
