Be sure to follow the WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team:
The heat and humidity slowly build with just a stray thundershower by the end of the week.
- This Morning: Fair and Mild with some fog spots. Low: 65°.
- Wednesday: A mix of sun and clouds. Turning Warmer. High: 89°.
- Thursday: Partly cloudy. Hot and humid. A few showers/storms (20%) High: 91°.
Wednesday Morning temperatures will be relatively comfortable for this time of year with most areas dipping into the lower to mid 60s. Areas of fog cannot be ruled out, but it is not expected to be widespread.
Most will remain dry for Wednesday with seasonable temperatures in the mid to upper 80s under a mix of sun and clouds and humidity levels will actually remain in check.
It will start to get a little warmer and also more humid by Thursday afternoon with highs reaching the upper 80s and some into the low 90°s under a mix of sun and clouds, there will be a few showers and possibly a storm building in the afternoon heat especially over the higher elevations of the Smokies and Plateau.
It will certainly feel more like summer as we wrap up the work week and head into the weekend. Highs Friday and Saturday will reach the upper 80s to near 90° range once again with Heat Index Values eclipsing the 90° in most areas during the mid-late afternoon time periods. Once again, there could be a few spotty P.M. storms Friday and Saturday, but they look very isolated and most likely confined to the higher elevations of the Plateau and Smokies as of now.
The humidity really starts to kick in for Sunday through early next week and afternoon highs will remain in the upper 80s. Heat Index Values though could reach low to mid 90s each of these afternoons, so be smart about taking frequent breaks and remaining hydrated. There will also be a few more spotty storms possible by then and they could pop-up just about anywhere during the afternoon/evening hours…a very typical summer pattern for our area.
