UPDATE: Storm potential for eastern viewing area Sunday afternoon
Sunday afternoon and evening: Storms have not developed yet and the risk for Chattanooga and west is very low. For these areas, expect a mix of sun and clouds and windy conditions. For Cleveland and Dalton and to the east, there is still a chance for scattered development of strong to severe storms from about 4-6PM. Everyone, please stay aware and continue to monitor the weather forecast and situation.
All modes of severe weather are possible. The biggest threat continues to be damaging straight-line winds (5-15%). Isolated tornadoes (2%) and hail at quarter to half dollar size (5%) are possible. Make your severe weather plans now, so if a warning is issued, you know where to go.
Additionally, Wind Advisories are in effect for all counties today with wind at 15-25mph and gusts at 30-45mph. This wind will be able to blow unsecured objects. Higher elevations in the eastern mountains, especially southeastern Monroe County, may see gusts up to 60mph.
Once the system passes on Sunday night with a few more stray showers, calmer weather will arrive for the start of the work week. Highs on Monday will be cooler in the mid-60s with clouds decreasing, becoming mostly sunny in the afternoon. Tuesday will have highs in the mid-70s and mostly sunny. Wednesday will be partly sunny with highs in the mid to upper 70s.
Then, we will end the work week with another rain and storm system, approaching Thursday evening into Friday morning.
