A foggy, muggy and warm start to our morning! This screen shot over Clarkesville is the improved version. Visibility has been reduced to one quarter of a mile and even less then that at times.
The worst of the fog has lifted and only a few of our southern counties remain under a Dense Fog Advisory until 9:00 AM this morning…
Here’s a beautiful picture! Our 4WARN Live Doppler radar is looking spectacular on this Friday morning. Dry all across the board…double score!
Expect another round of sizzling temperatures, in the upper 80 to lower 90-degree range.
Dew points in the upper 60s and lower 70s will
- Make it feel extremely muggy, to the point where your clothes will likely stick to you.
- Make it FEEL more like the mid to upper 90s area-wide.
3. Spark a few spotty afternoon showers and storms.
Take today and put it on cruise control for Saturday…same highlights! Hot, soupy, with a few afternoon spotty storms.
Our main weather maker holds off until Father’s Day. A developing system over the central plains will swing a cold front through Middle Tennessee on Sunday, sparking numerous showers and thunderstorms, especially during the afternoon into the evening. The Storm Prediction Center has our north and western counties under the YELLOW color — a ‘Slight Risk’ (2 on a 1 to 5 scale) for any storm to reach severe criteria. Areas under the GREEN color include the rest of the Mid State — under a ‘Marginal Risk’ (1 on a 1 to 5 scale for storms to reach severe criteria). Damaging winds will be the greatest threat.
Showers and storms will linger into Monday but mainly during the first half of the day before a drier pattern works its way in for part two of the day. Beautiful sunshine will accompany far less humid conditions by Tuesday! Hang tight!
I’ll have your full weekend storm timeline coming up on Channel 4 at noon today. Hope you join me!
