Humidity increasing, weekend storms

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  Look for humidity to be on the rise, along with our rain chances as we head into the weekend.

Today, we will see similar temps as yesterday, but with the increase in humidity you will notice the air is a little more sticky.  While I can't rule out an isolated storm or two, the chance today is very small as high pressure continues to keep the air mass over us stable.

For Thursday, I don't expect much of a change.  Upper 80s.  Lots of humidity.  Slight chance of a late storm.

Friday and Saturday, the high pressure blocking any significant development of thunderstorms will start to weaken so we may see a few more showers or storms mainly during the afternoon hours.  This will especially be the case Saturday as we see a weak wave of low pressure moving through.

Sunday, a cold front moves through, and we can all expect widespread showers and storms through the day Sunday.

Next week we will settle back into a late spring / early summer pattern of warm, humid air with a late storm or two.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
