Warm and humid again today, with highs topping out in the upper 80s and low 90s. A few isolated showers/storms can't be ruled out this afternoon (mainly across Plateau and elevated locations) otherwise mostly dry for many. Working into tonight, cloud cover increases as a cold front approaches the area. A few showers/storms will be possible late, with activity increasing throughout the day tomorrow. Our best chances will be early to late afternoon Tuesday, with a few stronger storms not ruled out (but very low chances for severe). By Wednesday, high pressure fills back in with warming temperatures and mostly sunny skies the remainder of the work week.
Additionally, a few isolated instances of flash flooding will be possible, but again, low chances overall. As you can see below, nearly all of East Tennessee is within the marginal (5%) chance. Given the "pop up" activity we have seen in days past, some locations will be more susceptible to higher running water than others. Overall though, we are looking at an area-wide quarter to half an inch rainfall, before clear and dry conditions return.
The best of the week will likely come Wednesday, as highs top out near average and humidity is much lower. This will gradually trend upwards in the days to follow so take advantage!
