Breezy tonight, isolated showers Thursday
For this evening, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with mild temperatures. It will be breezy with wind from the south at 10-15mph. Overnight lows will be in the mid-50s.
Thursday will be a warm day with highs around 70 and a chance for isolated showers during the day.
Our main concern will be Thursday night into Friday morning from about 8 PM EDT to 4 AM EDT as a line of heavier rain and thunderstorms moves through our region.
From Chattanooga and west, we are under a "Marginal" level 1 risk for isolated severe thunderstorms.
Some storms may be strong across the entire viewing area without reaching the technical severe category.
The biggest risks for us will be strong straight-line wind and heavy pockets of rain.
Rainfall accumulation should range from 0.5-1.5" although some locally higher amounts at 2" are possible.
The showers will end on Friday morning, and the rest of the day will be mostly cloudy with highs in the low to mid-60s.
Colder temperatures are expected for the St. Patrick's Day weekend with dry conditions.
Saturday morning lows will be in the mid-30s with daytime highs in the mid-50s for a partly cloudy day.
Overnight into Sunday morning will have lows around freezing. Sunday will be a pretty day with mostly sunny conditions, but temperatures will remain in the 50s with highs in the mid to upper 50s.
Monday will be mostly sunny again with highs in the mid-50s. Tuesday will have highs around 60. Then, a chance for rain returns to our area on Wednesday and Thursday.
