Evening temperatures will be in the upper 40s for those Trick or Treating tonight.
The hour by hour forecast for Athens above shows temperatures falling into the 30s after 10pm with a light northwest wind. Other locations will see a similar cool down.
A freeze warning had been issued by the National Weather Service for Thursday morning. There were many locations across the Tennessee Valley that had freezing temperatures early Wednesday morning as well. Other areas that did not will likely see the first freeze of the season along with some significant frost. Plan a little extra travel time Thursday morning to scrape the frost off the windshield if you park outside tonight. The temperatures will only be at or below freezing for a couple of hours before sunrise.
The warming trend will continue Thursday and Friday. Highs in the middle 60s tomorrow with highs likely reaching the lower 70s Friday afternoon. The wind will return from the southwest and they will eventually bring in some high clouds.
Saturday is now looking dry with highs in the 70s. A cold front will move in late Sunday. Ahead of this front it is looking mostly cloudy with a few showers throughout the day on Sunday with highs in the 60s.
Have a safe Halloween.
