We'll begin our Monday with partly sunny skies. Temperatures are likely to heat up into the lower 90's before a cold front sweeps in from the Great Plains. This will spark scattered showers and a few strong storms. Some of these strong storms could reach severe thunderstorm criteria with gusty winds in excess of 20-40 mph or greater. Other threats will be the possibility of minor flooding where some storms could produce over an inch of rain. Storms will move West to East and look to tape…

Sunday is a Weather Aware Day due to very hot conditions across the viewing area. Temps this afternoon are into the Mid 90s, and when you factor in the humidity it feels more like 100-105 degrees outside.

WEATHER SUMMARY: A Weather Aware Day has been issued for Saturday and Sunday. This is for the likelihood of dangerous heat this weekend.
Both Saturday and Sunday are Weather Aware days due a Heat Advisory being issued from Saturday 10 A.M. until Monday 4 A.M.
A band of showers has been moving southward towards the Tennessee Valley throughout the overnight causing a moderate to heavy rainfall to move over Southern Tennessee and Northern Alabama. Expect possible poor visibility on the roadways with wind gusts between 20 to 40 mph, so no severe weather is expected. Our best chance of seeing rain will be North of the Tennessee River. Showers look to end by 10 A.M.

Yet again temperatures will climb back into the mid 90's for this afternoon as we'll see partly sunny skies and winds turning in from the South to pump in moisture from the Gulf. With hot and humid conditions, the heat index could climb into the 100's by this afternoon. Stay cool and hydrated. The only relief will be a pop up shower likely to develop in Northeast Alabama and Southern Tennessee.

It's going to a hot and humid day across the Valley as southerly winds will be the main driver in our forecast which will open up the Gulf and allow humid air to move into the Valley. High temperatures will reach into the mid to lower 90's today and Thursday with heat index values climbing into the upper 90's! Remember to stay cool and hydrated if you have to be outside for long periods of time today. A chance of a pop up shower cannot be ruled out in Southern Tennessee and Northeast Al…

WEATHER SUMMARY: A cold front gets close enough to the Valley to create some showers and storms in southern Tennessee. But for most of the Valley we won't see much rain from that front. The next few days will be more of the same set up. The majority of us won't see much but those that do see the rain could see a quick soaker.
You'll start to notice that it'll feel muggy outside for Tuesday and Wednesday! Southerly winds will be the main driver in our forecast which will open up the Gulf and allow humid air to move into the Valley. With warm, moist air at the surface and a cold front sliding over the Kentucky/Tennessee border, pop up showers are likely to develop Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Expect a brief burst of rain, some lightning and gusty winds in excess of 20 to 30 mph. Most showers are likely to d…
