Heat/humidity inching up this weekend.

Posted: Updated:
Good Friday!  We can expect one more day of unusually nice weather, but reality will set back in this weekend.


For this afternoon, a big ridge of high pressure will keep sinking air in place which will guarantee another day of mostly sunny skies.  Our temperatures and humidity levels will be inching up as we head into the weekend.  Dew point values yesterday were in the 50s.  Today they are in the low 60s.  That is still fairly comfortable air, but indicative of a touch more moisture in the air.  Temperature values will also be a couple of degrees higher as our high this afternoon reaches about 90.

Saturday will see another slight up tick in the heat and humidity as we climb to a high of 91 in Chattanooga.  Still we will have an abundance of sunshine.  Sunday will sport a muggy high of 93 as southwest winds blow in warm, moist air from the Gulf of Mexico.

Monday, that front will move through, bringing widespread showers and storms possibly as early as Monday morning, and lasting through the afternoon.

    Although we will have a little more warm and humid air moving in today, it will still be a pretty nice start to the week. Look for mostly cloudy skies with a slight chance for an isolated storm or two this afternoon and evening. The high will reach 83 degrees.More

     Good Sunday. What a great morning! Temps are a little lower. The air is a little drier. It feels great outside, and it should stay nice through the day. Look for an afternoon high in Chattanooga of 81. More
