Cool and breezy with light scattered showers this afternoon

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) - (WRCB) - Good Wednesday.  Get ready for some picture perfect October weather... after today.  All flood watches and warnings have expired, but we will see a few more light scattered showers as we move through the afternoon.  I don't expect much more than a trace up to about .10" of accumulation, so any rain you do get would be more of a nuisance than anything.  


October's rainfall has been impressive.  Typically the driest month of the year, this October has seen 5.95" of rain. The average this far into the month is 1.5".  We still have a deficit for the year, but it is negligible at -3.72"


We will be much cooler this afternoon.  Highs will only reach the low to mid 60s.  It will also be a little breezy with winds blowing from the southwest at 10-15 mph.


I expect the light showers to continue on and off through this evening, then begin to taper off overnight as the low drops to about 53.


Thursday we will still see a number of clouds, but the chance of any rain is small, only about 20%.  Thursday's high will reach 67.


Friday through the weekend will be flawless.  Each day we will have mostly sunny skies with highs in the low to mid 70s, and lows in the mid 40s.

    Good Thursday.  We have another bitterly cold start today with temps in the low to mid 10s this morning.  Fortunately, our winds are fairly calm this morning so wind chill won't be as much of an issue heading out.

    The roads will be very slick including interstates and main city roads Tuesday night because of these cold temperatures. So travel should be discouraged.
