It’s a muggy start to your Sunday with temperatures in the mid-70s and dewpoints lingering in the mid-70s as well. Another hot and humid day is in the forecast with high temperatures reaching the mid-90s but heat index values are expected to reach the triple digits. The heat index will stay this high for an extended amount of time today so be sure you drink extra water, take breaks indoors, and bring your pets inside. Expect scattered showers and storms across the Tennessee Valley again today. Storms that develop could have heavy rainfall, lightning, and gusty winds. The rain and storms will be hit or miss, so if you don’t see any rain today, expect hotter conditions similar to yesterday. Showers and storms are possible overnight as well.
High pressure is shifting away from the Tennessee Valley so expect rain chances to come back over the next couple of days. Scattered rain and storms are in the forecast this afternoon but rain chances are a bit more widespread to start the work week. A few strong storms with lightning, gusty winds, and heavy rainfall are possible. While it will still be a hot start to the work week, temperatures in the upper 80s to around 90 will be a relief compared to this past week.
