CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- WINTER STORM WATCH: NORTH CAROLINA - Cherokee, Clay, Monroe, Polk Counties - Tuesday evening into Wednesday evening.
For the Tennessee Valley, we are getting a nice warm up this afternoon with partly cloudy skies and highs in the mid 50s.
Tonight we will have a front moving in that will bring cloudy skies this evening, and rain overnight. Expect a soggy commute to school and work Tuesday morning. The rain will last through Tuesday afternoon, then taper off Tuesday evening.
I would expect some periods of heavy rain. Rainfall amounts will range from 1/2" to 1".
Tuesday night, as the system moves east and temps fall is when some of the rain will likely shift to snow showers over parts of the Blue Ridge. Lows in that area will drop into the 20s, and icy roads will be a concern Wednesday morning.
Wednesday will be a bit cooler and breezy behind the front. Lows will be in the 30s in the valley, and highs in the mid to upper 40s with winds from the northwest at 10-20 mph.
Thursday through the weekend will some very nice weather moving in. Highs will climb into the low 60s by the weekend with dry weather until a few showers move in Sunday.
