(WAFF) - A complex of storms is ongoing to our north this morning across Middle and Eastern TN. While most of those storms will remain along and east of I-24, a few could graze northeastern AL or areas in southern TN east of I-65.
Outside of that, isolated showers/storms may develop elsewhere in the Valley this morning. Storms could still produce locally heavy rain as well as frequent lightning and gusty winds. We'll see a fair amount of cloud cover this morning due to the storms across TN, but skies should become mostly sunny this afternoon.
Temperatures will warm up quickly and highs should push into the mid-90s. Given the humidity, it will be feeling more like the low triple digits. An isolated storm is possible this afternoon, but we shouldn't see anything too widespread.
It gets even hotter for Friday and we continue our First Alert because of that heat. Highs should top out in the upper 90s with a heat index up to around 104°. There won't be much relief from Friday's heat in the form of afternoon storms just a stray storm is expected with most remaining dry.
A more unsettled weather pattern looks to return over the weekend. No one day looks like a washout, but scattered storms can be expected Saturday through Wednesday.
Saturday is still looking hot with highs into the mid-90s. We may be a few degrees cooler than that for Sunday and the start of next week due to more cloud cover and the scattered storms.
