Sunday’s weather was very active with widespread showers and storms. Some of those storms prompted severe thunderstorm warnings, and even a tornado warning. Luckily, today’s weather is much calmer. Not much rain to talk about until overnight, mainly after 11 p.m. Scattered showers are expected overnight. Highs are expected to be in the upper 70s and lower 80s, and lows are expected in the upper 50s and lower 60s. It’s feeling cooler out there today thanks to yesterday’s cold front!
Moving on to Tuesday, we have a chance for showers and storms again. Highs Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 70s. Temperatures will drop to the lower 60s on Tuesday night. The likelihood of rain on Wednesday is higher than it is on Tuesday, and in contrast to Tuesday, storms appear to be scattered throughout the day. Remember, if you hear thunder, go inside immediately. Wednesday will likely bring rain and storms to both Northern Alabama and Middle Tennessee, with showers and storms being much more likely if you live in the Northern Alabama region. Temperatures on Wednesday are expected to be in the lower 80s for the daytime highs and in the lower 60s for the overnight lows.
In comparison to Wednesday, Thursday’s chances of showers and storms are lower. The likelihood of these showers and storms seems to be highest in the morning, so if you have errands to run on Thursday and want to avoid the majority of the rain, wait until after lunch and bring an umbrella just in case. The high on Thursday is predicted to be in the upper 80s. Lows on Thursday night will be in the mid-sixties, with a few showers possible.
Rain and storm chances persist through the weekend. There is a chance for brief pop-up showers and storms on Friday; otherwise, the sky will be mostly clear. The chances for rain and storms are slightly higher in the afternoon and evening hours. High temperatures are expected in the upper 80s and lower 90s once again. Low temperatures are predicted to be in the upper 60s, with a few storms possibly lingering into the night. On Saturday, storm chances continue and are scattered throughout the day. If you have outdoor activities planned for Saturday, bring your raincoat because there is a much higher chance of rain on Saturday than there was on Friday. Temperatures on Saturday are expected to reach the upper 80s for the highs and the upper 60s for the lows. On Sunday, things appear to be much drier, and aside from a minuscule possibility of sporadic showers and storms, we should experience dry conditions with partly cloudy skies. Temperatures on Sunday are expected to be in the upper 80s for the highs and the mid-60s for the lows.
Overall, expect showers and storms for much of this week. As of now, storms this week should stay below severe limits, We will monitor the impending storms and let you know if anything changes. In addition to the rain, the first half of this week will see slightly cooler temperatures as a cold front moves through the area. But by Wednesday, the weather will start to warm up again. If you are looking for the best day to make weekend plans, it looks like Friday and Sunday are the best days because, other than a slight chance for showers and storms, dry conditions and warm temperatures are expected.
