Pleasant evening temperatures, then showers and storms overnight
The rest of the afternoon and evening will have above normal temperatures in the low to mid-70s with a mostly cloudy sky. There may be a stray shower or two, but the main line of rain and potential storms will be overnight. Expect rain and storms to start around 10PM/9PM CDT for our far western counties and continue across the area ending in our far eastern counties by 6AM EDT Sunday morning. The peak timing for Chattanooga should be 11PM to 2AM.
The threat for severe weather is low, but most of our area is under a Marginal (Level 1 out of 5) risk for isolated severe storms for tonight. The biggest risk is for damaging wind gusts at a 5% chance. The potential for hail is low and an isolated tornado is very low. Total rainfall should range from 0.3-0.7".
For Sunday, temperatures will be much colder with highs in the mid to upper 50s. The day will start off mostly cloudy, but cloud cover will decrease for a nice afternoon. Clearing clouds will begin for our northern counties first. Sunday night will be cold with many areas likely dropping below freezing, so be mindful if you have already started spring planting.
Monday's highs will be in the upper 50s for a partly cloudy day. A little warmer on Tuesday with highs in the low to mid-60s, and then more sunshine and pleasant highs in the low 70s for Wednesday. Thursday will have highs in the low 70s again, but with more cloud cover. Then, another system will bring rain showers to the area on Friday.
