Windy this afternoon, cooling for the weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Thursday.  This afternoon will be mostly sunny and windy.  I expect winds to blow through the afternoon at 15 to 20 mph from the west.  We will climb into the mid 60s today, but the cooler air will be sliding in this evening, and settling over the area for the weekend.

Tonight, the winds will decrease, but it will still be a little breezy.  Lows will drop into the upper 30s.  Friday will be cool all day with sunny skies and a high of only about 55.

For the weekend, it will be cool and pleasant.  Saturday we start with a low of 34 and warm to 61.  We will have a few clouds late in the day as a weak front presses through.  Sunday we will have some clouds lingering through the morning with a low of 39, and a high of 58 as skies clear late in the day.

Next week I expect us to warm a bit with highs in the mid 60s Monday and Tuesday.  A strong front will bring rain in Tuesday night with a big cool down Wednesday.  Wednesday's high looks like it may stay in the upper 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.
