Showers and a few embedded thunderstorms are working through east Tennessee now and will continue on and off through the afternoon. This is all associated with a low pressure system and warm front that will lift north this afternoon providing warm and muggy conditions in the days ahead. Drier air will arrive overnight setting up a partly cloudy start to Saturday.
Getting a glimpse at the high's expected this weekend, most of the region will be in the mid to upper 80's with 90 degrees possible around Chattanooga (especially possible Sunday & Monday). In addition to the warm temperatures, muggy conditions could make things feel in the low to mid 90's at times, so stay hydrated and cool if you plan to be outdoors.
With warm moist air out of the south over the next several days, afternoon pop up showers/thunderstorms will be likely at times (isolated to scattered). This is a very summer-like pattern that will be hanging around the region for at least the next week. Showers and storms will likely develop off the higher elevations and roll into the valley before dissipating into the evening and overnight hours.
