Isolated strong afternoon storms

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

While we haven't seen the same heavy rains starting our summer that were the hallmark of spring, we are still looking at a large surplus of rain for the year.  We are still more than 12" above normal for 2013, and I think we may add to that over the next few days.

High pressure continues to pump in warm, humid air at the surface.  That lid of high pressure will keep thunderstorms to a minimum this afternoon, though the few that do manage to punch through that lid will have a chance to become severe, producing small hail and possible damaging winds.

We will see that high weaken tonight into Thursday as a front works it's way in.  That will give us more widespread showers and thunderstorms through the day Thursday.  We could even see a few during the morning hours.

A low pressure center will move through Friday, keeping the chance for showers and thunderstorms fairly high for Friday as well.

It all moves through by the weekend, though.  We will dry out Saturday and Sunday, but more showers and storms are likely starting off next week.

    Good Tuesday.  Our mornings and evenings will be awesome through the rest of the week.  Even during the heat of each day the humidity will be low enough to keep it from being too oppressive.More
