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.

    (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
