Temperatures will continue to warm over the next week. Readings will rise almost 15 degrees by Monday with afternoon highs in the low 70s. By Wednesday of next week, expect to warm into the 80s with morning lows in the 60s. This trend will cause our temperatures to be nearly 20 degrees above average in Wednesday and Thursday.

We will stay dry heading into next week, but rain will return to the forecast as a front stall to our north over parts of Tennessee and Virginia.
