Hot and humid today, tomorrow, with weekend rain

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Thursday.  The heat and humidity will continue through Saturday with some weekend rain moving in, especially Sunday.

Until then, the Bermuda High, a semi permanent ridge of high pressure centered roughly over Bermuda, will continue to block the development of any significant rainfall.

For today and Friday, we can expect highs in the upper 80s with dew points in the low 60s.  That means it will feel somewhat muggy through the afternoon hours.  The chance of any rain or storms developing is only 20%.

Saturday, we will see that high weaken a bit allowing for a few afternoon showers and storms to develop.  While I don't think Saturday will be anything close to a washout, you should go out with the expectation that you may run into a storm or two.  Highs Saturday will reach about 87, and rainfall amounts will range from .25" to .50"

Sunday, we will finally see a cold front allowed to move through.  While we may see some Sunday morning rain, the heaviest line of rain and thunderstorms will hold off until the afternoon and evening hours.  I expect another inch of rain to be added to the total Sunday.  Highs will be in the low 80s.

While we may see a few residual showers Monday, the trend for the first part of next week will be to dry out.
