CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Our weather will stay interesting through Saturday.  Here is a breakdown of the forecast through Saturday.
THURSDAY NIGHT:  The situation is changing over north Georgia. Chief Meteorologist Paul Barys thinks there could be up 2-4 inches in some spots over Georgia. Northeast Alabama will see 3-5 inches south of Scottsboro. Tennessse may see some accumulation later tonight as the area moves our way. But that should be after midnight.
FRIDAY:  We will start the day with the wintry mix.  Some accumulations of snow will be possible north of the city, especially on the Plateau, Lookout, and Signal.  Temperatures in the morning will drop into the low to mid 30s around Chattanooga, and even east into the Blue Ridge.  It will be cooler on the Plateau with lows in the mid to upper 20s.  I do not expect widespread freezing, but certainly it will be possible Friday morning on the Plateau and other areas north of Chattanooga.  Temps Friday afternoon will be cool, but above freezing in the low 40s so any freezing will not be long term, and any precipitation that falls Friday afternoon will be in the form of light rain.
SATURDAY:  As the low moves up the east coast, it will drag more moisture and instability across the area, so we could see another light rain/snow mix Overnight Friday into Saturday morning as well.  This will be brief as we once again climb into low 40s, and the low finally leaves the area.  We should clear out Saturday afternoon, and have slightly warmer air (low 50s) moving in on Sunday.
