Good morning! The latest view of Newfound Gap shows some patchy fog still trying to lift out. As we look towards this afternoon, we'll likely see some isolated to scattered showers develop. High's will be slightly cooler with the added cloud cover, but not by much. Expect high's to top out in the upper 80's, near 90 degrees.
The low pressure system continues to move north and east today keeping the chance for showers in effect through the remainder of the week. High dew points and warm temperatures will continue to stick around as well making for an uncomfortable and sticky week.
Model guidance shows those afternoon pop up showers and storms developing each day. Not everyone will be impacted each day, but some will definitely see some activity over the next few days. Keep in mind as well that severe potential is low but some of these storms could pack a punch with heavy downpours, lightning, and gusty winds. Showers and storms will more than likely develop to the south (& higher elevations) and work northward during the afternoon hours. Keep the umbrellas handy just in case you are impacted.
A glimpse into Wednesday shows similar conditions to what we have been dealing with. Very warm and muggy conditions will lead to heat indices in the mid to upper 90's across the region. Remember your heat safety and take frequent breaks, stay well hydrated, and limit your outdoor time.
That does it for today, but stay cool and well hydrated the remainder of this week. If you don't already, be sure to give us a follow on Twitter & Facebook (@SecretCityWx). We provide updates day and night with the latest weather conditions around east TN.
