Rain tapering, windy this afternoon and a cool, dry Christmas

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  We start our Christmas Eve with wet roads, and continued rain showers.  Our 24 hour rainfall has ranged from 1.5" to 2" with some isolated areas getting 3".  Localized flooding is certainly a concern through the day.  A Flood Watch is in effect for our north Georgia counties until 8pm.

We will continue to see mild temperatures today with a high of 60 which will occur early this afternoon.  As winds increase this afternoon, blowing from the west at 10-20 mph, the temperature will rapidly begin to drop as we head into the evening.

Look for partly cloudy skies tonight with the low dropping to the mid to upper 30s Christmas morning.  Christmas afternoon will see the temperature climbing to a tolerable 49 degrees.  We should have quite a bit of sunshine late in the day.

The coldest air will move in Friday morning.  We will start in the low 30s, then rebound into the mid 50s with mostly sunny skies late in the day.

The weekend will be mild.  Highs will be in the upper 50s both days.  We may see a few showers on and off Saturday, and rain is likely on Sunday.
