Warm and sunny today, rain for the weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - Good Wednesday.  We will enjoy more sunshine today, but rain and cooler weather is on the way.

The pattern we have enjoyed for the past few days remains in place through Thursday.  Today we will have sunny skies with a high of 88.  Thursday will be mostly sunny with the high reaching 89.  Those highs are running about 10 degrees above average.

Friday is when things begin to change.  An approaching front will finally chip away at the high pressure ridge which has been keeping us so warm and dry.  We will have cloudy skies Friday which will keep highs in the low 80s. 

We will also see a few isolated showers developing Friday afternoon.  Friday night into Saturday morning we can expect heavy rain and a few thunderstorms to move through.  By the time most of us wake up Saturday morning, the heavy line of rain will have moved through.  However, spotty showers will continue on and off all day Saturday. 

Mother's Day will be mostly cloudy with a few isolated showers here and there, then another front will bring widespread showers and storms Monday into Tuesday.

    (WRCB) - Good Friday! It's all about the heat and humidity. There is even a HEAT ADVISORY for northeast Alabama for this afternoon and Saturday afternoon.For today and Saturday, highs will be in the mid 90s in Chattanooga. The heat index will be near 100 during the heat of the day. I don't expect much (if any) rainfall. Only a stray storm or two are possible, but, again, not likely.Sunday will be in the low 90s, but a low pressure center backing in from the east will provide some widespread s...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
