Rain and storms through Thursday

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  Rivers and streams are falling below flood stage, and just in time.  More showers and storms are on the way today and tomorrow.  It will not be the kind of deluge, however, we saw over the 4th of July holiday.

A front pushing through the area will spark widespread showers and storms late this afternoon.  I don't expect any severe weather, though brief heavy rain, lightning, and gusty winds will all be possible with any storms that develop.  Highs today will reach the upper 80s with lots of humidity to fuel the storms.

1" to 2" of rain is likely through tomorrow.

Look for the same type of pattern tomorrow, than drier air will move in behind the front.  Friday will be an exceptional day.  We will be a bit cooler with highs in the mid 80s, and the air will be a little drier also.  Dew points today are in the low 70s (VERY muggy air).  Friday they will be in the mid 60s.

Some moisture will begin to return over the weekend, though the rain chance will be very low Saturday.  We may see a few isolated storms Sunday afternoon.  Temps over the weekend will stay in the mid 80s.

We are closely watching the track of Tropical Storm Chantal.  With the current track, it would bring quite a bit of rainfall to the area Monday and Tuesday of next week.  Stay tuned on that one.

5pm... Storms Likely, 88

Your Easter morning has turned out to be just a bit cool with lows this morning ranging from the upper 30s in the mountains to the mid 40s in the valley.This afternoon, we will warm up quite a bit as highs climb to the mid to upper 70s.

    (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
