Sunny and pleasant this afternoon

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Friday!  Picture perfect weather today, but some big changes are on the way.

High pressure building in to our south will keep skies clear, and allow us to warm up to 70 degrees, about 5 degrees above normal.

Pollen may be a bit of an issue for you.  The count this morning fell, but is still in the "moderate category" at 54.  Tree pollen is the main culprit.

For the weekend, look for clouds to build through the day Saturday.  We will see clouds increasing Saturday as well, but should still manage a high of about 72 degrees.  During the late afternoon I think we will see some widely scattered showers and thunderstorms, but no severe weather is expected. 

The rain will taper off during the night, but another round of widespread showers are expected to move through with a front Sunday morning.  Sunday afternoon we see the rain moving out, and cool, blustery air moving in.  The high Saturday will only reach about 56 with north winds at 10-20 mph.

The chilly air will be with us all next week as highs remain in the 50s and lows drop into the 30s.  We may even see a little mixed precipitation Tuesday morning.
