Temps and humidity rising this week

Posted: Updated:

Good Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the slightly cooler than normal temperatures and the pleasant breezes, despite a few showers passing through.

High pressure nudges into the Tennessee Valley today. This will keep our chances for showers and storms very low for the early part of the week, but will provide plenty of sunshine to heat things up. Highs today and Tuesday will reach the lower 90s. Nights will remain fair and muggy with lows in the lower 70s.

As the high pressure weakens a bit and humidity increases, scattered showers and storms will re-develop mainly from Wednesday through the weekend.  The one thing that we will notice is that the temperatures will stay in the low to mid 90's and the heat index will get to at least 100. Some places could see the heat index pass 100 degrees!
