Warm, fog, drizzles today and a rainy Thursday

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  Expect more light drizzles and fog as you make your way out this morning. 

We will be warmer today with highs reaching the mid to upper 60s.  No record warmth in sight.  The record for this time of year is 76 degrees.

Not much of a cool down tonight as we drift down to 63.  An approaching front will bring more substantial showers to the area Thursday morning with scattered showers on and off through the day Thursday.  Still, highs should manage to reach about 70 behind light southerly winds.  One or two thunderstorms are possible, but nothing severe, and rain will be the main component of this system.

Low pressure developing along the front will move through the area Thursday night into Friday.  That will keep the rain showers coming all day Friday and even into Friday night / Saturday morning.  Rainfall totals for that period will range from 1"-2".

The front will move through Saturday, bringing in cooler air.  Saturday's temps will range from 39 to 55.

The front will back into the area once again Saturday night, bringing more rain to us Overnight Saturday through Sunday.  Some rain may even linger into Monday morning.

Monday afternoon into Tuesday, we will finally see the sun return with MUCH colder weather mid week.  Highs will drop into the upper 30s and lows into the 20s next week.

    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
