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.

    (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

    Parts of the area remain under Frost Advisories and Freeze Warnings. I don't think we are looking at any widespread problems this morning, but patchy areas of frost are certainly possible, especially in the Blue Ridge.More
