It won’t be a washout this weekend, though we do have the potential for isolated showers and storms. Ahead of a disturbance moving through the region, cloud cover will begin to build in. High dew point values in the 60s will lead to humid conditions and a supportive atmosphere for showers. Highs on Sunday will be near 90.

A better chance for the widespread activity will arrive Saturday night into the predawn hours Sunday morning. The mainline of showers, with embedded storms, looks to push southward through the Tennessee Valley after midnight. Ahead of the mainline, isolated activity is expected to develop.

The Storm Prediction Center currently has portions of the area in a ‘Marginal Risk’ (level 1 out of 5) for some strong to severe storms to develop. The main concern from any storms that roll through the region will be locally heavy rain, gusty winds, and small hail. Stay weather aware late Saturday into the overnight hours.

Next week, we are looking at some steamy air for this time of year. Expect highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s!
