Warm today, isolated late storms

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) -- Good Thursday.  We should have a great day, overall, today.  Highs will be in the low 80s under partly cloudy skies. 

We do have enough warmth and instability ahead of an approaching low to possibly generate a couple of isolated showers or storms this afternoon, but they will be few and far between.

We will see light southerly winds ahead of this next system keeping lows tonight in the 60 degree range.

Through Friday, the low and its associated front will move closer to the Tennessee Valley, creating increasing clouds and finally some scattered showers and storms Friday afternoon.  They will be on and off, producing some brief heavy downpours, but most of us will only see .25" or less.  The low will track to our south in a line from Ft. Payne to Dalton to Murphy, NC.  Along that path, the rainfall amounts will be higher, ranging from .50" to 1".

We will see scattered showers and storms lasting from Friday afternoon into Saturday morning, then we should clear out by Saturday afternoon.  Highs Saturday will be in the mid to upper 70s.

Sunday into next week we will see cooler and drier air settling in with lows dropping into the 40s Monday morning, and highs near 70 Sunday and Monday.

We will stay dry, but warm back into the upper 70s through the week.

    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.
