We will really start to feel the humidity build through the day as southerly winds increase across the region. This combined with some early sunshine will help to destabilize the atmosphere. Most of the area will remain dry the first half of the day, but by late afternoon/evening, an upper level disturbance will rotate across the area. This will help enhance the opportunity and coverage of showers and storms. It would be a good idea to take the rain gear if you are heading out to Boomsday tonight. The scattered showers and storms will taper off overnight leaving some lingering clouds to start on Sunday. It will be a few degrees cooler on Sunday thanks to the early clouds, but once again the opportunity for P.M. showers and storms will return. It would be a good idea to take the rain gear to Neyland Stadium as well for the Vols home opener. The rain opportunities look lower for Labor Day, but temperatures look hotter. It will remain hot and humid most of next week with spotty storm opportunities each day.
