Comfortable today. Heat, humidity and storms return mid-week. 4th of July looking questionable.

Don’t you just love when a new month starts on a Monday? It’s got me motivated to tackle whatever may come this week. Today’s weather is quite nice and it feels quite refreshing outside! Low humidity and seasonable temperatures – can’t complain much! Enjoy the day outdoors, because humidity will build back up throughout the week.

Tuesday will be mostly sunny as well, just slightly hotter and slightly more humid. Expect highs in the low to mid 90s Tuesday. Wednesday holds the chance for some isolated pop-up afternoon thunderstorms. There will be hit-or-miss and not everybody will see rain. Highs Wednesday will be in the mid 90s, with heat index values likely into the lower 100s.

4th of July Forecast: We’re still a few days out but plan to be dodging thunderstorms on Independence Day. Don’t cancel any plans you may have, but keep a close eye on the forecast. I know many of you likely have outdoor activities planned throughout the day. Just keep up with us here at Tennessee Valley Weather and know there is a chance for scattered thunderstorms. We’ll dive deeper into the specifics once we get a little closer! One thing I can guarantee, though, is it will be hot and humid. Scattered thunderstorm chances, along with the heat and humidity continue Friday and even into the weekend. Heat index values Wednesday through Friday are expected to be around 105 degrees across the area.

While we have a few decent rain chances toward the end of the week, we’re still quite dry. In the image above, you can see how much rain our viewing area has received for the month of June. Not much at all. Hopefully this week/weekend we can pick up some more much needed rainfall. The potential is certainly there!

While all is relatively quiet (for now) here at home, let’s check in on the tropics. We’ve got Major Category 4 Hurricane Beryl which made landfall earlier this morning in the Leeward Islands, the island of Carriacou. Beryl has winds as strong as 150mph, which is just shy of the Category 5 threshold (157mph). Beryl has already made history, being the strongest storm in the Atlantic this early in the season. As far as where Beryl is heading, it’s still too early to tell if the hurricane will track westward and head toward Mexico, or if it will take a more northwestward trend and head toward the Gulf of Mexico. We’ll keep you updated!
