A beautiful morning across the Volunteer state. Current temperatures are sitting in the lower 60s for the valley with highs this afternoon topping out in the low 80s to upper 70s. Humidity will also remain low, making things feel even better for this time of the year.
Though it will feel great, don't forget to throw on the sunscreen. The UV index is high and sunburns will come easy. This trend will continue through the end of the work week as well.
Looking ahead, high pressure is stationed across the region. This is allowing for plenty of sunshine across East Tennessee. As this shifts east, much warmer and muggier air will arrive for Friday. Highs for most will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s. Into the weekend, a disturbance, currently in the southern Gulf, is expected to make landfall. As of now the NHC believes this will just be a Tropical Depression, but with the warm Gulf waters we could see something greater. Regardless, this system will work northeast, bringing the chance for a tropical airmass to the area. We'll keep you posted, but anticipate the chance to see rainfall from this early next week.
Go out and enjoy the beautiful conditions today. It is not too common to have low 80s and low humidity in mid June. We warm up a tad into Thursday before the heat and humidity return in full force on Friday.
