After a particularly cold spell, Chattanoogans can expect to see warmer days over the weekend, forecasters say.

A weak weather system will help initiate a southerly flow on Thursday that will moisten up the atmosphere enough to result in scattered showers and bring moderate temperatures through the end of the work week, according to the National Weather Service.

Then, a stronger storm system will impact the area this weekend.

That storm is currently brewing out west, said WRCB Chief Meteorologist Paul Barys.

"It's a pretty powerful little storm," he said.
