WHAT TO EXPECT

We’ll see those mostly sunny skies this afternoon! The humidity drops throughout the day as well. Expect highs near 82 degrees this afternoon.

Friday is also pretty nice. We’ll start out with sunshine and then see those clouds move in later with some rain. There’s less threat - for now - for storms at the Vols Super Regional versus Notre Dame. Most of the rain Friday night is closer to midnight. Saturday could start soupy but should end up with lots of sunshine. The high will be 80 degrees Saturday.

LOOKING AHEAD

Sunday is a spectacular day of calm weather, slightly cooler temps, and abundant sunshine. This is a “pick day!” The heat starts to crank up Sunday though with a high near 87 degrees.

Monday begins the Southeast’s big heat wave. The 925mb temps over us are the hottest of the year by a mile! We have 91, 94, 94, and from Monday-Thursday of next week.

Some spotty rain chances return next week to hopefully help cool us off.
