Cool and pleasant today; warming, showers this weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  Get ready for some rain and MUCH warmer weather as we head toward the weekend.

Today will be seasonably cool with sunshine and highs in the low 50s.  Tonight will be clear with lows dropping back into the upper 20s and low 30s.

Thursday is when things start to get interesting.  A front will begin to develop over the Plains.  Ahead of the front, we will have light southerly winds warming us to about 60 Thursday afternoon.

The front will stay to our west Friday and Saturday, but ahead of the front light scattered showers will peel off and move through the area both days.  We will also be warm Friday and Saturday with highs climbing into the mid 60s!

Sunday, the front will finally push through.  As it passes it will bring a period of heavy rain and some thunderstorms Sunday morning.  After a high of 67 Sunday afternoon, we will dry out, and cooler air will move in to start off Christmas week.

A preview of Christmas... right now, next Wednesday look good with a low of 32, a high of 51, and sunshine all day in the Scenic City.

    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

    Our average highs should be sliding downward during the second half of August. We are going to experience the exact opposite over the next few days.More
