With a high pressure system to the east, winds will come from the south in the days ahead. This will funnel in warm and muggy temperatures across the south. Heat indices (as seen below) are expected to top out in the lower 100's for most. Heat safety will be key Tuesday and Wednesday, so stay well hydrated and cool.
As showers move out the later half of today, temperatures will stay near average in the upper 80's. Some clearing will take place overnight leaving partly cloudy skies Tuesday and Wednesday. Afternoon showers and storms are possible tomorrow and Wednesday but will be scattered. The main threat, as emphasized above, will be the heat and humidity. By Thursday and Friday, a front to the north will move in increasing instability across east Tennessee. This will be the best opportunity for widespread shower and storm activity, so we'll keep a close eye for the end of the work week.
