Warm and humid with isolated storms

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) - Good Thursday.  If you can't enjoy a nice vacation down in the Gulf of Mexico, maybe we can bring a little bit of the gulf to you!

We are seeing a steady diet of light southwesterly winds that are transporting much of the warmth and humidity from the gulf into the Tennessee Valley.  We are combining this with an upper low moving by to our north.  All of this will combine to spawn a few isolated storms this afternoon as highs reach the mid 80s.  It will be noticeably cooler in the Blue Ridge with highs in the upper 70s.

We will have enough instability in the area to keep our skies mostly cloudy Friday with a chance of a shower or storm through the day.  We may even see a shower or two for your commute Friday morning along with some patchy fog.  With the increase in cloud cover, highs Friday will be in the low 80s.

A front will drape across the Tennessee Valley this weekend.  I think that will up the coverage of showers and storms, making it likely you will see at least some rain both days of the weekend.  Highs will remain in the low 80s Saturday and Sunday.

Next week we will settle into a summer like pattern of warm, humid air with highs in the mid to upper 80s (the normal high is 80), and isolated afternoon storms.

    Although we will have a little more warm and humid air moving in today, it will still be a pretty nice start to the week. Look for mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for an isolated storm or two this afternoon and evening. The high will reach 83 degrees.More

     Good Sunday. What a great morning! Temps are a little lower. The air is a little drier. It feels great outside, and it should stay nice through the day. Look for an afternoon high in Chattanooga of 81. More
