Clearing out today and cooling off this weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Friday!  Don't forget to set the clocks BACK one hour before bedtime Saturday night as DST comes to an end (this is the good one in which we get an extra hour of sleep).

Halloween turned out to be a nice one as MOST of the rain held off until the late night.  We will see skies clearing out through the day as the front continues to move eastward.  Winds are dying down as well, and by this afternoon it should be very comfortable with highs in the low 70s and mostly sunny skies.

Great weather for all the football games tonight.  It will be mostly clear and temps will be in the upper 50s and low 60s this evening.  Temps will cool into the mid 40s by Saturday morning.

One thing to watch for Saturday will be clouds, and even a stray shower or two is possible.  Many times, as a front moves through, the low pressure associated with it can still shoot down some energy even if the front has passed by.  This will be the case Saturday, and will give us quite a few clouds.  The chance of rain Saturday will be about 20%.

The high Saturday will be in the mid 60s.

Sunday will bring lots of sunshine with much cooler weather.  The low will be around 40.  The high will reach 60.

    It's all about the heat and humidity. There is even a HEAT ADVISORY for northeast Alabama for this afternoon and Saturday afternoon.More

    Hold on. The heat and humidity are going to continue through the weekend. Today, look for a high of 95 and a heat index near 100. We won't see the same coverage of storms that we saw last night, but with this much heat and humidity in place you never want to completely rule out one or two storms breaking through.More
