happy tuesday!! we begin our tuesday with mostly clear skies and very mild temperatures. most areas begin dry. but it's not out of the question that an isolated shower pops up. that will be much more likely later in the day, especially heading into the afternoon. temperatures climb into the upper 80s with, in some cases, plenty of sunshine. so these showers and storms will not be terribly widespread. but one or two of them could be strong with a lot of lightning. we'll gradually drop rain chances a bit into your wednesday and thursday, leading to a little more sunshine and temperatures climbing into the upper 80s to near 90. heat index values will likely be in the lower 90s for most areas. a few spotty showers and storms are possible during this time frame. but overall, rain chances will be much less. those rain chances increase a bit more as we head into your friday. and that is even more the case into the weekend. this is due to an approaching area of low pressure out of the northeastern gulf of mexico, moving ashore sometime over the weekend into early next week. this enhances rain chances even more through the first of next week, bringing tropical showers and thunderstorms to our area with heavy rain, lightning and lots of humidity. highs will be mostly in the lower to mid-80s. for more on your forecast anytime, visit our websiteat wtva.com. thanks joel, a homicide investigation continues this morning after a man's body was found in corinth... police chief ralph dance says 57 year old george harris happy tuesday!! we begin our tuesday with mostly clear skies and very mild temperatures.
