A few isolated showers are working through the valley this morning and will be more widespread throughout the day and into the evening. With the wet soils we've had the past few days, NWS Morristown has issued a flash flood watch (highlighted GREEN) for the northeastern corner of the state through today. It is important to note all of East Tennessee is under a Marginal Risk of Flash Flooding through the day today. Stay abreast to the latest alerts if they are warranted, particularly near water bodies and low lying areas.
Showers and storms will be present through much of the day today and could lead to localized flooding given the slow movement of these cells. Pushing into the weekend, the low that brought all the moisture we have seen will begin working east. Large ridging across the Midwest will begin to push in, bringing drier weather and warmer temperatures late into the weekend and into early next week.
With clearing skies by late Saturday and through Sunday, UV indices will be high. Purples symbolize values between 10 and 11 on a scale where the max value is 15. The EPA continues to suggest high UV values through early next week as well, so don't forget the sunscreen.
Overall, weather conditions will begin to improve once we get through today. Temperatures will be the next weather consideration as highs will be in the upper 80s and low 90s through the weekend. Make sure to stay hydrated and take breaks if you have plans to work outdoors. Don't forget to check out our daily video forecast below for more information as well.
