A bitterly cold morning, but a sunny, warm afternoon

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Friday.  Hopefully the pipes and pets are taken care of this morning.  Temperatures this morning are ranging from the mid 10s to the low 20s.  We are looking for a nice warm up this afternoon, however.  Light southerly winds and lots of sunshine will allow us to climb into the low 50s, average for this time of year and 5-7 degrees warmer than yesterday.

This weekend will be ridiculously nice.  Saturday will be sunny, and after a cool start in the upper 20s and low 30s the air will warm into the upper 50s.  Sunday will be just as nice as the high climbs to 60 degrees.  Late Sunday we will see clouds building with a slight chance for a stray shower Sunday night into Monday morning.  This is associated with a front that will cool us a little to start next week.

Monday morning we will start the day in the upper 40s.  Cooler air streaming in from the north, however, will only allow the high to climb to about 51 in the afternoon... a whopping 3 degree temperature climb through the day.

It will warm back up rapidly through the first part of the week with no rain.  By Wednesday we will be back up to 60 for a high.
