Heat and humidity settling in

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Tuesday.  The front that brought the rain is now moving east, taking the rain along with it.  Now we will see heat and humidity settling in.

The normal high for this time of year is 86 degrees, and we will be well above that for the rest of the week.

Today look for highs to soar into the low 90s with dew points in the mid 60s.  Skies will clear to partly cloudy this afternoon as high pressure settles in behind the front.

We will be even hotter tomorrow with highs in the mid 90s.  I will put in a slight chance for an afternoon storms tomorrow ahead of another front that will push through on Thursday.

The front will slide through Thursday bringing widespread showers and storms.

Friday, in the wake of the front, we will be slightly cooler, especially in the morning.  Morning lows will be in the low 70s through Thursday, then drop into the low 60s Friday morning.

Highs will drop into the upper 80s (still above normal) Friday into the weekend.

The weekend will be dry for the most part.  We may see the stray storm or two Sunday ahead of the next front which brings more widespread rain to the area Monday.

    (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
