Storms ending. Warm and humid today.

Posted: Updated:

Good Tuesday.  The storms Monday brought numerous reports of wind damage around the Tennessee Valley.  We also had widespread rainfall amounts of .5" to 1".  Isolated areas, however, received 2"-3" of rain through the day.  With the storms tapering off this morning, we will see a pretty quiet day today.  This afternoon the high will reach about 89 with lots of humidity making it feel rather sticky.  You should have no problems heading to Riverbend this afternoon.  Matthew West takes the Coke Stage at 9pm.  It will be partly cloudy, humid and 79 degrees when the concert begins.

Wednesday, high pressure will be in control.  That will mean no rain, but it will also trap the humidity at the surface making for another muggy, uncomfortable day.  Wednesday's high will reach 90.  We will get up to 90 Thursday also, but the high pressure will begin to move out and some isolated showers and storms could develop with the daytime heating late in the day.  I expect the same Friday with a high of 88 and scattered storms in the afternoon and evening.

For the weekend, high pressure will reestablish itself, keeping the chance for rain very low this weekend.  The heat and humidity will remain however with the high reaching 90 Saturday and 91 Sunday.
