The chance for rain and storms slowly builds up as we move into the weekend and then we'll have waves of rain and storms at times next week.
WHAT TO EXPECT TODAY
Thursday is a hot day, in the upper 80s again. Today, we're topping out around 88 degrees, but it can feel warmer during the heat of the day thanks to the humidity. It's a mostly sunny to partly cloudy day, with isolated showers and storms popping up, 20% chance. We'll see the showers and storms develop along the Smokies, and a stray shower or storm will move to the rest of our area.
Tonight will be partly cloudy, with isolated patches of fog, and a low around 67 degrees.
Friday will become partly cloudy, with several showers and storms developing at times in our area, especially in the afternoon to evening. Friday comes with a 40% chance or coverage of our area, predominately in the higher elevations, with isolated showers and storms in the Valley. The high will be around 86 degrees.
The humidity makes it feel even warmer! Be prepared with plenty of water, sunscreen, and you may want to limit time outside and avoid the heat of the day in the midday through afternoon.
This weekend comes with scattered rain and storms at times. We'll have a 40% coverage of our area Saturday and Sunday.
Memorial Day Monday comes with scattered rain and storms, 60% chance, and highs in the low 80s.
The chance for rain increases next week, as batches of rain and storms spread out from tropical rain in the Southeast U.S.
