More heat and humidity ahead
It's going to be hot on this Friday with isolated showers developing for the afternoon.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - We’ve got a hot afternoon shaping up as we see temperatures well into the 90s for the afternoon.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Friday will bring lots of heat and humidity as we go into the afternoon. Make sure you drink plenty of water and use the sunscreen because UV Index values will be at a 10 with mostly sunny skies. Our only break from the heat will be the isolated to scattered showers that develop into the afternoon. Much like Thursday some of you will stay dry, others will have a pretty strong storm develop that produces some gusty winds and heavy rainfall.
This evening you’ll need the umbrella through early evening plans and then rain chances fade away with the setting sun. Overnight we’ll have some patches of fog develop as temperatures reach near 70 by daybreak with partly cloudy skies.
The sped-up rain is better news for your weekend plans! The only rain by dawn Saturday should be up in the Mountains along the NC/TN border. The rest of use will be just a bit cooler (it’s still summer after all) and the humidity should be slightly better. There’s a ton of sun in the afternoon!
There’s lots of sun along with some fog early Sunday. The maps are very much split on rain chances later Sunday afternoon, so we’re still carrying a low-end chance. Showers are more likely by Sunday night into early day Monday.
After Monday it’s a really quiet – and burning hot – stretch of weather. We should only have a very stray mountaintop thunderstorm Wednesday and even through Thursday and Friday of next week.
