A warm, dry start to the week

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Monday.  We will start off warm and dry with sunshine and an afternoon high of 77 degrees.  That is well above the average high of 64, but we will have to get into the 80s to break any records.  Today record high is 83.

Tuesday is St. Patrick's Day.  It will be a nice one.  We will start in the low 50s.  A weak front will bring us a few clouds, and the high will reach 74 Tuesday afternoon. 

Some cooler air will move in behind the front Wednesday.  The high will only manage about 62.  We will also see clouds building Wednesday ahead of an area of low pressure moving up from the southwest.  That low could bring us a few showers Wednesday night.

It is shaping up to be a wet Thursday.  That low will slowly trek across the Tennessee Valley from morning to night making light rain showers possible just about any time of the day or night.  The air will stay rain cooled allowing for a high of only 55.

We will dry out Friday as the high reaches 62 for the first day of spring.  Spring officially begins at 6:45pm eastern Friday.

Saturday and Sunday will be nice.  We will have a mix of sun and clouds, and temperatures will hover around the average.  Lows will be in the low 40s, and highs will be in the mid 60s.
