Picture perfect today, with showers/storms Thursday and Friday

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

Good Wednesday.  We will have amazing weather today with sunshine this afternoon and temps in the low to mid 70s.  It should be a great evening in the 60s, then we will cool into the low to mid 50s as we start our Thursday.

We can expect mostly cloudy skies Thursday with scattered showers and thunderstorms popping up n and off through the day.  We will still manage a high of 72.

Friday will get to 77 with spotty showers and storms ahead of a front that will slide through Friday night bringing a line of thunderstorms to the area.

By Saturday morning, we should have cleared out.  If you get up early enough, you might be able to catch a glimpse of the lunar eclipse in which the sun will cast the shadow of the earth onto the moon.  It will take place from 6:15am to 7:26am.  The best viewing time of maximum coverage will be 7:22, just before the moon slips below the horizon.

We will be cooler this weekend with a high of 65 Saturday under sunny skies.

We will have continued sunshine Easter Sunday.  Sunrise will be at 7:23, and if you are heading to a sunrise service bring a jacket.  Temps will be in the upper 30s and low 40s.  By the afternoon, however, we will have warmed nicely into the upper 60s. 

Clouds will build Sunday night, and we will start next week with scattered showers and storms also.
