Vols Season Opener expects storms for evening, Labor Day brings heat with humidity

Tonight: 60% coverage of showers/storms through the evening hours, then partly cloudy and muggy overnight. Low: 70°
Labor Day: Partly cloudy, hot and humid with only 20% coverage of P.M. storms. High: 91°.

Tuesday: Continued hot and humid with 40% coverage of P.M. storms. High: 90°.

It was another steamy day with scattered storms around, but it does look quieter area-wide through the overnight hours. We will see some patchy fog for some early on Labor Day, followed by a rapid warm-up with highs in the upper 80s-lower 90s. Heat Index values will reach low-mid 90s as well, but I only expect around 20% coverage of P.M. storms, so most will remain dry for Labor Day plans.

The pattern shifts back to a more unsettled one the rest of the week, as we remain hot and humid with spotty storms opportunities nearly each and every day with slightly higher coverage on Tuesday and again next Saturday. The shower/storm threat on Saturday is due to an approaching cold front heading our way. If the timing continues, it should push through Saturday afternoon/evening, leaving drier and less humid air behind it for Sunday. We will watch to see how this system develops and progresses through the week.
