Hot, humid, an isolated storm or two

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  It will be all about the heat and humidity for the eastern U.S., including the Tennessee Valley.

Our normal high for today is 90 degrees.  We will be in the low to mid 90s all week. Factor in the humidity, and you will have feels like temps near 100 degrees.  While I can't completely rule out one or two late day showers, they are not likely until later in the week.

High pressure to our north is picking up moisture from the Atlantic, and shooting it into the area, increasing our humidity levels.  Little of that will translate into rain through Wednesday as that high pressure also provides for some very stable air.

The high pressure begins to break up on Thursday allowing a few more showers and storms to develop during the afternoon hours.

The rain chance gets even a little higher Friday through the weekend as a weak cold front approaches and moves through.

    (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
