Cloudy, but nice for the rest of the week

Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Good Wednesday.  We should continue drying out for the first few days of May. 

Though we will see quite a few clouds through the day today as a result of a trough of low pressure to the southwest, we still have enough stability in the atmosphere to keep the raindrops away.  I will hedge my bets with a 20% chance of a sprinkle or two, but it is a fairly dry pattern.

Models are in good agreement that this will be the case through Friday, then they begin to spat a bit.

There is good agreement that low pressure will develop over the central plains Friday.  Some data shows that low sliding northward and bringing us no rain at all this weekend!  Other data shows the low and it's associated cold front moving through Saturday and Sunday bringing widely scattered showers both days.

When you put it all together, this looks like the most likely weekend scenario for now...

Clouds will thicken up Friday night through Saturday as the front gets closer.  The front will move through Saturday evening, bringing some widespread showers. 

The low associated with the front will bring more scattered showers through the day Sunday and Monday, then we will begin to dry back out by mid week.

Temps will cool a bit this weekend also with highs in the upper 60s.

Keep in mind there will likely be quite a bit of tweaking of the weekend forecast over the next day or so as the models begin to come into agreement, so stay tuned!

    (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
