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 Tuesday. We will take a break from summer as below average temps will be with us through the rest of the week. Today will be even nicer than yesterday. Our high will reach 82 under mostly sunny skies. Dew point values are in the mid to upper 50s which indicates fairly dry air as well.More

    The humidity will be a little lower today as a result of a passing front and light north winds. With that said, we won't cool down any as our high soars to about 90 under mostly sunny skies.More
