A few showers and storms on the way

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA -

(WRCB) - Good Friday!  Overall, the day will be good with highs in the mid to upper 70s.  A cold front will be approaching through the day, and as it does we can expect clouds to build and southerly winds to pick up blowing at 10-15 mph this afternoon.

This system is breaking up a bit, so I don't think we will have any severe weather or large accumulations of rain.  We will see some isolated showers and storms this afternoon through Saturday morning, but accumulations will range from .10" to .25".  We may have slightly higher amounts in the path of the center of low pressure in a line from Ft. Payne up through Murphy.  There we can expect about .50"

You may wake up Saturday to a rumble of thunder or a brief shower, but the trend through the day will be the rain chance pushing off to the east, and drier weather moving in.

A weak, secondary front is going to push through Sunday morning, and will bring some clouds, but the chance of rain with that front is less than 20% Sunday.

Highs Saturday will reach the mid 70s.

Behind that front, cooler weather will finally move back in with sunshine and highs near 70 Sunday afternoon.

Monday will be great.  Lows Monday morning will be in the 40s, and the high will only reach 70.  Monday night the low could drop as low as the upper 30s.

the warm air will make a rapid comeback though, with highs returning to the mid 70s Tuesday afternoon, and reaching the low 80s by mid 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

    Parts of the area remain under Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings. I don't think we are looking at any widespread problems this morning, but patchy areas of frost are certainly possible, especially in the Blue Ridge.More
