The 3 H’s of summer continue with hazy, hot and humid conditions along with some spotty storm chances each day.

  • Tonight: Muggy overnight with areas of fog/haze due to fireworks. Low: 74°.
  • Tuesday: Staying steamy with more spotty storms around (30%), especially in the afternoon/evening hours. High: 93°. (Heat Index Values ~100°).
  • Wednesday: More heat and more humidity along with some spotty storms around (30%). A few storms could be severe. High: 94°. (Heat Index 100°-105°+).

It will remain muggy overnight with lows only dipping into the low to mid 70s under a variably cloudy sky. There will also be some areas of haze/fog where some of the bigger fireworks displays are, because the winds will remain mild overnight and this type of atmosphere will keep the smoke trapped closer to the ground.

Tuesday looks quite similar to Monday with more heat and humidity along with some spotty storms around. A few could pop up before midday, but the more likely opportunity will be in the afternoon/evening hours. Highs will once again be above average with most topping out in the lower 90s, but with the higher humidity values, it will feel more like upper 90s to near 100° at times.

Wednesday looks similar as well, but Heat Index Values could be closer to 100°-105°+ during the afternoon/evening hours. There will also be the risk of some spotty storms around and there is a chance that some of them could be severe (damaging wind gusts the main concern), especially towards N.E. Tennessee and S.W. Virginia.

We will watch to see how this system could develop and monitor Wednesday as a possible Weather AWARE day.

The heat and humidity continue to linger for Thursday and Friday as highs continue to reach the low to mid 90s with Heat Index Values between 100°-105° each day. There will also be slightly better chances for scattered showers/storms these days. A few could produce some strong winds, but most will produce locally heavy rainfall where they do pop up.

A cold front will approach the region later on Saturday. This will most likely increase cloud cover along with rain/storm chances as well during the day. This may be the best opportunity for more widespread rain compared to what we have seen over the past few weeks.

We will see how this system develops/sets up as we go through the week.
