Good afternoon! We will see similar conditions to yesterday with partly cloudy skies and high's in the 80's. It will be breezy at times today with winds out of the south/southwest around 10 mph. As we work ahead into the weekend, changes are on the way. The system to our west (seen below), will work in a north and east direction. This means the majority of us will stay dry through the first half of the weekend but isolated pop up showers/ t'storms can't be ruled out.
Along with the limited shower potential, we will continue warming. Looking at Sunday afternoon's temperatures, expect high's in the upper 80's here at home. Working further south, I wouldn't be surprised at all to see high's in Chattanooga at 90 degrees. If you have outdoor plans, stay hydrated. Not only will it be hot but also muggy. These are typical August high's so keep fluids close by.
The majority of shower activity this weekend will be in the higher elevations but lingering showers/storms off the plateau could impact the valley, so look out. The bulk of rainfall will come late Sunday and into the day Monday as a cold front sweeps through. Look to have high's back in the low to mid 70's early next week. Clearing will begin taking place Tuesday afternoon with limited shower activity expected mid-week.
That wraps it up for today but stay cool and stay dry (at times) through the weekend. Cooler temperatures will move back in next week!
