Be sure to follow the WATE 6 On Your Side Storm Team:
Work week starts very warm and humid.
- Tonight: Partly Cloudy with a couple of showers (20%). High: 90°.
- Tuesday: Very Warm and Humid. An Isolated storm possible.(20%) High: 92°.
- Wednesday: Rain chances increase: (50%) 71°
A few random evening showers will likely decrease with the setting sun. Areas of fog are possible once again.
We will see a similar forecast for Tuesday with limited P.M. storm coverage and highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s.
On Wednesday, whatever is left of Barry, should move from the Mississippi River Valley and move across the Ohio and Tennessee Valleys. This will increase the scattered showers and storm coverage across East Tennessee. This looks to be our best chance for rain during the upcoming work week and if forecast trends and timing continue, this could be our next Weather AWARE day. The amount of rain we see will be nothing like what areas of Louisiana, Mississippi and Arkansas have seen though by the time it gets here. This rain area along with some spotty showers/storms will continue into Thursday.
At the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend, drier and hotter weather will return. Temperatures will top out in the low 90s once again and it will certainly feel more like summer as Heat Index Values could reach mid-upper 90s by then.
