After midnight or so, any rain chance looks to move out of the area.

Michael Crabtree will sign with Ravens
Grant reportedly failed his physical and the Ravens were quick to schedule Crabtree for a visit after learning of his release. In five career games against the Ravens , Crabtree has 33 catches for 444 yards and six touchdowns.

We're starting off milder than we have the last several days as the atmosphere gets ready for some rain chances later today. I'd plan on seeing some rain Friday night. Widespread showers, and even a few thunderstorms, will go along with temperatures bottoming out in the 40s. We'll keep you updated as we become more confident in next weekend's forecast. While the tornado threat is not impossible and something where you want to be aware of a potentially brief spin-up, it is an extremely low risk. Otherwise, the day on Sunday will be partly cloudy with highs getting into the 50s and 60s. Significant icing, a half-inch of wet snow and 40 miles per hour winds were likely.

Instant analysis of Colts' trade with Jets in 2018 NFL Draft
The Indianapolis Colts have traded their 3rd overall pick in this year's draft to the New York Jets for multiple picks. However, New York ultimately overpaid for this pick to keep the quarterback-less Buffalo Bills from taking the spot.

The bulk of the rain will be gone late Monday with a stray shower leftover Tuesday as the upper level low rotates away to our north. Clouds will clear on Wednesday with cooler and drier air in place with highs below normal and lows back into the 30s, although likely above freezing at this point. Winds W/NW 5-15, gusting up to 25 miles per hour. Expect lower 60s for lows with highs in the 70s. Winds N 5-15 miles per hour. May see another couple showers and storms later tonight, mainly across southeastern Tennessee.

IF precipitation continues Monday night into early Tuesday morning there is a chance some wet snowflakes may mix with some of the light rain but accumulation will not occur and with decreasing clouds on Tuesday we'll be in the low 50s on the first day of spring as it begins at 11:15am.
