Sunny and mild today, with rain for the weekend

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Friday!  With the fog burning off and the air warming this afternoon will be perfect for returning the gifts and catching the post Christmas sales.  It's a bit nippy out there this morning. 

Later this afternoon, light southerly winds will bring in mild weather.  I expect it to be sunny with highs in the mid 50s.  Tonight will be chilly, but not quite as chilly as last night.  Lows will drop to about 36 heading into Saturday morning.  Saturday afternoon, the high will climb to about 60, and we will see clouds building.  I think we will see some scattered showers developing Saturday evening.  Rain is likely overnight Saturday evening into Sunday morning.  Late Sunday, the rain will taper off, and we will still manage a high of 58.  Rainfall amounts will range from 1" to 1.5".

Next week, we can expect a bit of a cool down.  Monday and Tuesday will sport highs in the low 50s.  Wednesday and Thursday sees highs dropping into the low to mid 40s.  Lows in the middle of the week will be back down into the low 30s.

Friday I expect more afternoon rainfall with the high Friday in the low 40s.
