Chilly for the new year, with rain by Friday/Saturday

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Tuesday.  This morning will be cool and overcast with a light mist here and there.  Skies will clear out this afternoon as it becomes breezy.  The high will reach 48, about 5 degrees cooler than yesterday's high.

Tonight, the cold air will really start to settle in.  The low will drop to 29 under clear skies to start your New Year's Eve.  The high Wednesday will be about 46 with mostly sunny skies.  Bundle up as you head to the Doubletree to watch the Coke bottle go up.  Temperatures will drop to about 31 degrees by midnight heading into Thursday morning.

The first day of 2015 will be cool, but overall a nice day.  The high will climb to 49, and we will be mostly sunny with clouds building Thursday night.

Friday, we will have a low of 32, and a high of 45.  An area of low pressure moving by to our south will bring us clouds and spotty rain showers to the area through the day Friday.   Right now, it looks like anything we get Friday would be in the form of rain.

Saturday and Sunday will be mild with lows in the 40s and highs in the low 50s.  A front will press through Saturday bringing widespread rainfall Saturday afternoon into Saturday night.  1" to 2" are possible with that system.  We will clear out through the day Sunday.
