A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for the TN Valley through Saturday night with an additional 2-4 inches of rainfall possible.
Steady rainfall will taper off to scattered showers and storms tonight. Scattered showers will likely linger into the morning hours of Independence Day. Some of the storms could contain frequent lightning and gusty winds, but most won’t be strong enough to be severe. Scattered afternoon storms should still develop on the Fourth, but as we head into the evening, that activity should be winding down.
By the time the fireworks shows kick off, most of the storms are expected to be in the process of fading away or have already faded away.
Storm chances start heading down as get into next week. We’ll be warming back up as well, but it doesn’t appear we’re in store for anything abnormally hot. In fact, highs next week are likely to remain a couple degrees cooler than average…in the upper 80s.
You’ll want to stay weather aware this holiday weekend. You can download our free 48 Storm Team app by texting APPS to 4-48-48. With the app, you can get lightning alerts and track storms on the go.
