PREVIOUS STORY: There is a chance for thunderstorms today, with a Marginal (low) risk for severe weather. If storms can develop the biggest threat will be damaging hail. I'm placing the storm timing today from 1PM-6PM.
Storms look to develop west of Chattanooga by 12PM-2PM, near Franklin, Grundy, and Marion counties, eventually tracking into Chattanooga by 2PM-4PM in the afternoon.
Hamilton County has only a 2% probability for a tornado, but the risk is still there. Storm will gradually work their way into north Georgia by 3PM-5PM, and we'll need to keep an eye on damaging wind gusts, large hail, and an isolated tornado during this time. Storms look to exit the Tennessee Valley by 5PM-6PM or so, leaving rainfall amounts of 0.25" to 0.50" total.
While most woke up to morning lows in the 50s today, tonight turns colder with lows dropping to the mid 40s. Tuesday looks pleasant, with a north wind of 6-12 mph with a high near 60.
The rest of the week looks splendid! It will be dry through Saturday, with rain returning by Sunday for the upcoming weekend.
- 12PM: 62, T-storms developing west of Chattanooga
