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.

    (WRCB) - Good Saturday. While we have seen a few light sprinkles this morning, the bulk of the rain stayed east and south of the area, and I think that will continue to be the case. For the rest of the day we can expect mostly cloudy skies with a high today of 74. We will see our winds increasing behind the front to 10-20 mph from the northeast.Tonight, the winds die down, and we will see some clearing heading through the overnight.More
