Clearing and warming through Friday

Posted:

(WRCB) - After the light rain kept us indoors most of yesterday, we should be able to get out and enjoy the great outdoors again today.

High pressure building in will help clear out the skies, but it will also deliver a light southerly wind flow that will warm us up into the upper 70s today, and the low to mid 80s Thursday and Friday.

Saturday clouds will build as an area of low pressure develops along a dying front just west of us. 

That low could bring some scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to the area Saturday evening.  Right now it looks like the best chance of rain will be in a line from southwest to northeast of Chattanooga. 

Both the timing and coverage of the rain will be tweaked over the next couple of days as more info comes in, so don't make or break any plans for Saturday evening just yet!

After that low moves out, MUCH cooler weather will settle in for Sunday with highs only reaching the mid 60s.  The cool air will continue into Monday with the low Monday morning dropping into the low 40s (upper 30s in outlying areas).

    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
