Halloween forecast: Windy with showers and storms this evening

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

(UPDATE) Good Thursday and happy Halloween.  We have an active weather day in store.

We have had cloudy skies and a few sprinkles this morning, but most of the rain (and wind) will hold off until later in the day.

As our front gets closer, we will notice winds picking up from the southwest, blowing in the valleys at 10-20 mph this afternoon into tonight.  A WIND ADVISORY is in effect for the higher elevations where winds will range from 25-35 mph with higher gusts.  

With the rain, some of the later models are showing the rain showers staying scattered, and even breaking up a bit during the evening hours.  There is an outside chance trick-or-treaters could get by with minimal rain for a few hours this evening.

Late tonight and into the overnight we will see some pretty good storms moving through that will bring heavy rain, gusty winds, and a slight chance of some damaging winds with some of the stronger storms..

While the official risk of severe storms issued by the Storm Prediction Center is just west of Chattanooga, isolated areas of wind damage tonight are something to keep an eye out for.  No worries at this point with tornadoes.

Friday, we may see an isolated shower or storm early in the morning, but by the time you are heading off to school or work, it should all be gone.  The high Friday afternoon will reach about 72, then cooler air will start to move in Late Friday through the weekend.

    (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
