Cold this morning, sunny and mild this afternoon

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  The cold weather this morning will be more than made up for this afternoon as light southerly winds bring our temperature up to 54 degrees.  The average high for his time of year is 52.  We will also sport sunny skies today.

Clouds will move in tonight as a weakening front slides through.  It will bring some light snow showers to the plateau and the Blue Ridge, but I expect little accumulation.  Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 20s in the mountains, so patchy areas of black ice for the morning commute are possible.  For the rest of Thursday, it will clear out, but behind the front the air will cold and blustery as winds blow in from the north at 10-20 mph.  That will keep temps in the low to mid 40s.

The cold air sticks around through Friday morning.  We will start the day in the upper 10s and low 20s!  Friday afternoon should be nice, though, as the skies become sunny and the temps climb into the low 50s. 

It gets even nicer over the weekend.  Saturday will be sunny with highs in the upper 50s.  Sunday we will have clouds building, but should still manage to see the high climb to near 60 degrees!

Monday will be a little cooler as another front brings us a few rain showers Monday morning, and a cool but tolerable high of 51.

    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.
