I hope you enjoyed your weekend! As we kick start the new work week, temperatures will be warm. Highs for most valley locations will be in the 90s with higher elevations in the upper 80s. An isolated afternoon/evening shower can't be entirely ruled out, but is unlikely for most locations. Looking below, we start the morning peaceful and mild. Temperatures in the valley are current sitting in the lower 70s while the current temperature in Newfound Gap is 62.
As mentioned, this afternoon is going to be a HOT one. Humidity will make it feel that much warmer with highs in the low to mid 90s across the valley. I would not be surprised to see Chattanooga hit 95 today, though this won't be record beating. 97 degrees is the high temperature record today for the city.
Other than an isolated shower today and again tomorrow, things will be quite dry across the Volunteer State. Showers don't begin to work back into the forecast until mid to late weekend and early next week.
For now, stay cool. Highs will be above the norm today and slightly cooler, but still warm Tuesday. A cold front will then knock highs into the low 80s before things gradually warm back up towards the end of the work week and into the weekend.
