Hot, humid today with isolated storms possible

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Tuesday.  We may see one or two thunderstorms over the next 2 days, but nothing in comparison with what our friends in Oklahoma have endured.

Today we will continue a warm, muggy pattern with SSW winds at 5-10 mph and highs reaching about 90 degrees.  The heat and humidity will combine with a trough of low pressure to produce one or two thunderstorms.  I do not expect any severe weather, but with all the heat and humidity, I will not rule it out completely.

Wednesday, our chances for showers and storms will increase a bit as a front slowly presses through.  We will definitely have cloudy skies through the day, and I would expect a little better coverage of the isolated showers and thunderstorms.  Again, we will be warm and humid with highs in the mid 80s Wednesday.  So, while no severe weather is expected, I will be keeping a close eye on any storms that develop.

For Thursday, we will still see plenty of clouds on the back side of the low that will be carrying the cold front through.  I don't expect much (if any) rain with those clouds.  What we will mainly see behind that front will be much cooler and drier air moving in for Friday and Saturday.

Friday we will have sunny skies and a high in the mid 70s.  Saturday will only reach the upper 70s, and we will round out the holiday weekend with a high of 85 and plenty of sun for Sunday.

Memorial Day also looks good with sunshine and a high 0f 81.

    (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

    Parts of the area remain under Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings. I don't think we are looking at any widespread problems this morning, but patchy areas of frost are certainly possible, especially in the Blue Ridge.More
