Heat and humidity building
Good Tuesday. Yesterday was warm with a high of 91, but it actually felt pretty good all day as the humidity was at least partially taking a day off. We will be back at it today, however, as the temperature AND the humidity will both be a bit higher. Today's high will reach 93 in Chattanooga with the heat index in the upper 90s. One or two storms may pop up this afternoon, but they will be few and far between. The rain chance today: 10%.
Wednesday we will stay hot and muggy with a high of 92. A dying front will spawn a few scattered showers and storms but, again, they will not be numerous. I will put the chance for rain Wednesday at 20%.
Thursday and Friday high pressure will dig deep into the Tennessee Valley. I will take rain completely out of the forecast, though the heat and humidity will remain. The high will reach 92 both days.
The weekend looks about the same save one or two storms both Saturday and Sunday afternoon.
