Isolated showers and storms today

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday. We are transitioning out of a dry period and into a few days of humid air, rain, and thunderstorms.

Low pressure lifting up from the south and a front moving in from the west are causing a pretty unstable environment this morning. As a result we have already seen a few isolated showers and storms, and we will continue to see them popping up throughout the day.

The front will press through on Thursday, and with the gulf moisture infusion we will likely see widespread heavy rain along with some thunderstorms both Thursday and Friday.

We should see the rain tapering off Friday night. I can't rule out a shower or two lingering into Riverbend night, but conditions will definitely be improving Friday night into Saturday.

The weekend looks awesome with sun returning both days, and lasting into at least Monday of next week.

Temps through the forecast period will remain in the low to mid 80s, but the increase in moisture will make it very muggy.

    Students at the Chattanooga School for the Arts and Sciences (CSAS) went outside for their usual recess Friday afternoon. But teachers and staff keep a close eye on them as temperatures soar well into the 90s with plenty of humidity.More

    It's all about the heat and humidity. There is even a HEAT ADVISORY for northeast Alabama for this afternoon and Saturday afternoon.More

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More
