Pleasant today - isolated late showers?

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) -- Good Wednesday.  You have one more day to cut the grass before the next rains come.

Today, we are watching the low that brought the recent rainfall FINALLY pushing out of the area.  In it's wake, however, we will have enough instability in the air to combine with temps in the mid to upper 70s to create some isolated showers and non severe storms firing up this afternoon.

Thursday we will start the day with lows in the mid 50s.  The low will be completely gone allowing for much warmer air (highs in the low 80s), and little to no chance of significant rain Thursday as high pressure briefly settles in the area.

Thursday night, however, we will have our next low pressure / cold front combo begin to move through and bring showers and storms to the area through the day Friday, particularly Friday night into Saturday morning. 

The timing on this front is still a bit uncertain, but the latest data for the weekend shows the best chance of widespread rain Saturday being in the morning with scattered showers into late Saturday east of town.

By Sunday, cooler and drier air will be settling in with a slight chance for a late day shower, but raindrops will be few and far between.  Highs Sunday will be near 70.

We will be even cooler Monday with highs in the mid 60s and lots of sunshine.

    (WRCB) - Good Thursday. 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
