Muggy, a few storms today, cooling tomorrow

Posted: Updated:

Good Wednesday.  We are approaching our rainfall being 11" below average this far into the year.  While we are seeing some spots getting ample rainfall (some parts of McMinn County got about 2" yesterday) much of the area is still thirsting for rain.

Today will be another hot, muggy one.  The high will reach 95 with a heat index of about 100.  We will have a few spotty storms producing heavy rain, but only in a few areas.   The rain chances are better the further north you are.

Thursday will still be humid, but noticeably cooler also.  The high will only reach the upper 80s, but the heat index will still manage to get to the mid 90s.  The rain chance will stay about the same, a 30% chance for a few spotty storms.

A front moving in from the west will give us more widespread showers and storms early Friday morning, then on and off through the day Friday.

We will have widely scattered showers both Saturday and Sunday which will provide some nice drought relief, but could put a crimp in your weekend plans.

    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.
