Strong storms with gusty winds, small hail and heavy rain lightning

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Humidity levels will remain high and with afternoon heating, showers and storms will be building for the next few days right through the weekend.  As we had last night in Gilmer county GA some of the storms could become locally heavy. Highs for Thursday will only rise into the mid 80's, but the chance for storms will remain high.  On Friday we will have another great chance for showers and storms with highs in the mid to upper 80's.

This weekend will be hotter with highs in the 90's and showers and storms developing especially into the afternoon and evening hours.  The trend of high temperatures and PM storms will continue through next week. 

In any case, if storms develop where you are get into a car or a sturdy building. Lightning is extremely dangerous and the only warning you will get is when you hear thunder.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
