Midnight Update:  Rain showers have diminished, except for areas along the Kentucky and Tennessee state line.  As temperatures continue to drop and dew points remain high, expect patchy dense fog to develop through our morning hours of Tuesday.  Tuesday morning temperatures start off in the upper 60s to near 70 degrees, with Tuesday afternoon high temperatures around 86 degrees, with partly to mostly cloudy skies.  There will be a chance for a few isolated rain showers on Tuesday, yet a better chance for rain returns on Wednesday, with lingering rain chances this week.  High temperatures will generally be in the mid to upper 80s this week.
We will continue to have a tropical air mass over us this week, with unsettled weather leading to more rain chances.  Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s on average this week, yet the high dew points will make temperatures feel about five degrees warmer.
