Heat and humidity on the rise

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Tuesday.  Here comes the heat and humidity!

Yesterday, we had a high of 86 with dew point values in the low 60s.  Today will see a high of 90 with dew points in the upper 60s.  Bottom line... we will be more hot and humid today, and it will only get worse through the week.

High pressure building to our south will start to push in some moisture from the gulf, and we will also see some moisture backing in from the east.

Wednesday, temps will continue to climb.  I am forecasting 93 in Chattanooga (the normal high is 89).

We could even reach 95 on Thursday.

I don't expect any rain through Thursday.  As we head into the Labor Day weekend, however, expect one or two storms to pop up each afternoon Friday through Monday.

    Good Tuesday.  It is mild and breezy this morning with temps in the mid to upper 40s.  We won't have too much of a warm up with the high in Chattanooga only reaching about 50.

    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.
