Nice today, weekend rain

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Good Friday! Enjoy one more dry day before the weekend rains. 

After a cool start, we will see warm, pleasant weather this afternoon with highs in the low to mid 70s.  I also expect clouds to increase through the late afternoon and evening ahead of an upper level area of low pressure that will ultimately bring in the rain this weekend.

We may even see a few showers popping up this evening, and overnight we can expect scattered showers as well.

For Saturday, I would expect on/off showers at just about any time through the day.  Models are suggesting the best coverage of rain Saturday will be Chattanooga northward.  With that said, I think we will all see at least some rain Saturday.  I would expect about .50"-1" of rain through the day.

For Sunday, the upper level low will continue to slowly move through, and I think we will see more rain Sunday than on Saturday.  Widespread rainfall amounts of 1"-2" are possible just Sunday, meaning 2"-3" of rain through the weekend are certainly possible.

For next week, the upper low moves on out Monday, but we could still see one or two showers lingering into Monday and Tuesday.  Highs will warm into the mid to upper 70s starting off next week as well.

    (WRCB) - Good Saturday. While we have seen a few light sprinkles this morning, the bulk of the rain stayed east and south of the area, and I think that will continue to be the case. For the rest of the day we can expect mostly cloudy skies with a high today of 74. We will see our winds increasing behind the front to 10-20 mph from the northeast.Tonight, the winds die down, and we will see some clearing heading through the overnight.More
