Good afternoon folks! I hope you are staying cool across East Tennessee. Not only are temperatures in the 90s early this week, but humidity will make things feel closer to 100. Looking below, this is what temperatures will feel like this afternoon and again Wednesday. Stay cool, hydrated, and rested.
After a very wet pattern, things dry out a bit for us across the area. The day 1-5 rainfall forecast shows limited rainfall potential. Other than the usual summertime afternoon shower/storm, we really don't have a good rainmaker until next week. Rainfall totals will generally average between a tenth and half an inch through Saturday.
A weak system will pass through the region Thursday, bringing our best chance of rain for the week. Again though, this looks to provide fairly limited rainfall with scattered showers and storms expected through mainly the afternoon. Strong storms and localized hydro issues can never be ruled out with these slow moving summer-time storms, so be weary of that. Things will look to dry back out toward the late evening and overnight each day.
That wraps it up for today, thanks for join as always! The heat doesn't look to let up for some time, so keep your heat safety in mind as we work towards September.
