Most areas are experiencing considerable cloud cover, but not many heavy rain or thunderstorm clusters this evening. We are very close to a solid corridor of tropical moisture, currently draped over the Florida Peninsula, which will be the main driver in the increase in local rain chances for the midweek time frame. The moisture plume will drift northwest, drawn into our region by a swirling upper low over the Tennessee Valley and a high-pressure ridge nudging in from the east. What all this means is limited sunshine Tuesday through Independence Day with areas of rain, more likely Wednesday and Thursday with a few inches of accumulation possible. Lows will be in the low to mid 70s, while highs remain mainly in the 80s because of the excess cloudiness.
