Scattered Showers and a Few Thunderstorms This Weekend

Mostly cloudy tonight. A few thundershowers possible until about 10 PM. Hopefully rain avoids fans at the Bristol race. Lows in the low to mid 60s.
A similar day Sunday with a 30% chance of widely scattered showers. A high of 82 to 86 degrees in most spots.
More Moisture Early Next Week
Rain chances go up more Monday with scattered showers and thunderstorms as a slug of moisture moves over us from the southwest. Highs in the upper 70s to near 80 degrees.
Best Rain Chance Wednesday Followed by Big Cool Down
Rain and thunderstorms increase Tuesday night and Wednesday as a cold front moves through the region. Rainfall is expected to be locally heavy. Right on cue for the first official day of fall, as we dry out, much cooler and drier air is anticipated with highs in the low to mid 70s with lows in the 40s and 50s by Thursday morning.
