Taking a look at the latest shot from the Newfound Gap area, mostly cloudy skies and mild temperatures (low 40's) are what you can expect for the lunch time hour. Moving into this evening, showers will begin working in arriving by the overnight hours and through Friday.
The latest radar scan (as of noon) has showers around the Chattanooga area and moving northeast around 20 mph. Expect these to arrive by the evening hours tonight and continuing through the day Friday. Because areas of low pressure spin counter-clockwise, we will see wrap around moisture into Saturday. For the morning hours, this will likely be in the form of snow showers/flurries, but into the afternoon, all rain. No accumulation is expected but the sight of some snow will be nice given the cold air we have had to deal with.
The latest data continues to show upwards of an inch of rain through Saturday with locally higher amounts possible. Be sure to account for breezy conditions Friday night and Saturday as wind chills could be in the low 30's Saturday morning.
That wraps up today's forecast so stay dry and warm as we close out the work week. For daily high's and low's, visit the "Weekly Forecast" tab at the top of the page.
