Blustery this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) --  Hold onto your hat this afternoon! Winds will be picking up later today.

Through the day, cool air will be moving in with light northwesterly winds.  That will keep highs in the low 50s today.

The winds will increase to 10-20 mph through the afternoon.  Combine that with the cooler air, and there will be a bite to the air late today.

In the mountains, we could see higher wind speeds in excess of 25 mph.

There is a Wind Advisory in effect for North Georgia for this afternoon.  www.wrcbtv.com/weather

The winds will die down tonight, but the chilly air will stay with us through Thursday with lows in the 20s and highs in the 50s.

We will warm quite a bit Friday into the weekend with highs climbing to 70. 

Meanwhile, pollen counts are extremely heavy today with the latest count at 910 (anything above 120 is extremely heavy)

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
