Good Wednesday morning! Today looks windy and very wet! The entire area is under a WIND ADVISORY through this evening. Winds will be southeasterly at 20-30mph with gusts in excess of 40mph as a front presses through the our area.
We will likely see some spotty showers this morning in advance of the main line of rain. It appears that the main line of rain will move over the Cumberland Plateau and into our area between 11am and 1pm EST, and through Chattanooga between 12pm-3pm.
Areas East of Chattanooga can expect to see this system later this afternoon and into the evening. Rainfall amounts widespread will be around 2".
The rain and wind will die down for our area tonight, leaving us with cooler temps for Thursday...with highs reaching the mid to upper 40s.
Another weak front will pass through over the weekend. Rain chances with this will be low as the air will be too dry for anything of significance, however we'll see another shot of cool air as we go through Saturday night and Sunday morning. ... See MoreSee Less
