A Rainy Start to the Week

Posted:

(WRCB) - We can expect rainy weather through the day today.

An area of low pressure that used to be a tropical storm in the eastern Pacific is making it's way through the Tennessee Valley today.

The main impact will be fairly persistent rain all day with the isolated rumble of thunder here and there. 

There is officially a SLIGHT RISK of severe weather issued by the Storm Prediction Center.  The chance is slight, and the biggest threat is from gusty winds accompanying any storms that do develop.  Rainfall amounts widespread should range between one and two inches.

Tonight we will see the low moving to our north, and taking most of it's energy with it.  The rain will begin to taper off, but even in the wake of the low we could see some clouds and an isolated shower or two popping up Tuesday as well.  Wednesday through Saturday will be nice as the sunshine returns and highs remain in the upper 70s and low 80s.

Another front will bring some clouds and much cooler weather this weekend.  By Sunday, highs will be down to about 70 degrees.

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More

    Our average highs should be sliding downward during the second half of August. We are going to experience the exact opposite over the next few days.More
