Scattered storms Saturday & hotter for next week
Scattered showers and storms will again be possible Saturday, but in the days ahead the rain chances look lower and temperatures look higher.
(MAPS ABOVE: #1. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND STORMS MOST NUMEROUS SATURDAY AFTERNOON & EVENING........#2. BEST SHOWER CHANCE SUNDAY OVER THE SOUTHERN HALF OF THE VIEWING AREA........#3. UPPER 80S TO NEAR 90 SUNDAY AFTERNOON)
A weakening cool front approaches the Tennessee Valley Saturday. This front along with daytime heating should allow for a better coverage of showers and storms. We could have some during the predawn hours Saturday, then a more widespread coverage Saturday afternoon and evening. The main threats from these storms should be heavy downpours, frequent lightning and strong wind gusts. Due to an already saturated ground in some areas, flash flooding could result during some of the slower moving storms. Showers and storms should gradually diminish Saturday Evening.
On Sunday, the cool front could stall south of Chattanooga in the southern part of our viewing area. So, this could still allow for a chance of afternoon t-showers south, but drier and partly sunny over the northern part of the viewing area. It all depends on exactly how far south the front moves. So, be sure to get a forecast update throughout the weekend from the StormTrack 9 Team.
HOTTER NEXT WEEK
It's been hot already! But, next week looks hotter on average with lower afternoon shower chances. Partly sunny each day with low 90s early week, then mid 90s through late week. Morning lows remaining muggy in the 70s. Just a small chance for any pop up afternoon t-showers each day.
As always, you can depend on the StormTrack 9 Team for updates!
