Tennessee Valley drying out

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Leave your umbrellas at home! Much drier weather is on tap for much of the Tennessee Valley the rest of the work week.

High pressure and slightly drier air have replaced the more humid, rainy, and stormy conditions from the past two days. Wednesday brings plenty of sunshine and warmer, seasonable highs in the upper 80s. The only spots that may see a brief afternoon shower pop up are the high elevations mainly north and east of Hamilton County. Look for fair skies tonight with lows in the 60s.

Thursday and Friday stay very warm and get muggier as southerly winds return with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 degrees. With more humidity returning a few spotty afternoon showers and storms can't be ruled out. Same goes for the weekend.

Chances increase a bit early next week for showers and storms to become a more scattered. This mean more areas will see them, but they'll mainly be in the afternoon hours and then fade through the evening. Conditions stay very warm and muggy with upper 80s to 90 for highs, upper 60s to 70 for lows.
