Hot, muggy, one or two storms

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  Here we go again!   Heat and humidity will rule again this afternoon with the high reaching 93 and the heat index hovering between 95 and 100.

The same ridge of high pressure that has been pumping in warm, humid air from the Atlantic for the last couple of days is still there, so look for another weather pattern that will offer lots of heat and humidity, but very little in the way of rain as the atmosphere remains fairly stable.

Even with that stability, however, when you have temps in the low 90s, and dew points near 70 one or two storms are likely to punch through so be watchful late today into this evening.

Our weather pattern will be changing over the next few days with the high pressure relaxing a bit Thursday and Friday allowing for more widespread coverage of afternoon showers and storms.

A cold front moving in this weekend will bring us a very good chance of showers and storms mainly Saturday evening into Sunday, but one or two showers SXaturday morning can't be ruled out.

We may see the front becoming stationary over the area Monday and Tuesday so I will leave a good chance of rain in the forecast to start off next week as well.

Your Easter morning has turned out to be just a bit cool with lows this morning ranging from the upper 30s in the mountains to the mid 40s in the valley.This afternoon, we will warm up quite a bit as highs climb to the mid to upper 70s.

    (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
