Severe Storms Again Possible This Weekend

We have finally arrived at the weekend, and I am sure everyone is looking forward to a brief break from the rain. However, do not put away your rain gear just yet because, while the chance of showers and storms is low Saturday, it is not completely zero. In addition to the rain, temperatures are expected to rise as we approach the weekend. The weather will be mostly dry in the first half of next week, but rain and storms are still possible.

Aside from muggy conditions, today‚Äôs weather started out nice with mostly clear skies and warm temperatures. With the exception of a slight chance of isolated showers and storms in the afternoon and evening, these pleasant conditions should last for the majority of the day. Today’s high temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 80s. Tonight, a few showers are possible, and temperatures will drop to the mid-60s.

As we head through the remainder of the weekend, Saturday appears to be the driest day other than a very small chance for pop-up showers. In addition to the rain, temperatures will be warmer, with highs in the mid-to-upper 80s and lows in the mid-to-upper 60s. Saturday appears to be the ideal day for a swim, but bring plenty of water and sunscreen if you intend to go.

We are continuing to monitor Sunday’s storm threat. Showers and storms appear to be most likely in the late afternoon and evening, though isolated showers and storms cannot be ruled out for Sunday morning. Sunday night has the highest chance of showers and thunderstorms for the weekend, and they are expected to be scattered across the area. A few of those storms could be strong with gusty winds and hail. Aside from the overnight storms, lows are only expected to fall into the upper 60s to lower 70s, making it feel a bit toasty.

Moving on to next week, a few showers and storms are expected to continue through Monday morning. While rain and thunderstorms are still possible for Monday afternoon and evening, they are much less likely. Northern Alabama residents will have a slightly higher chance of showers and thunderstorms than Middle Tennessee residents; however, storms will be seen in Middle Tennessee as well, particularly in the morning. High temperatures are expected in the upper 80s and lower 90s. The rain should start to clear out by Monday night, with overnight lows in the mid-to-upper 60s.

There is a slight chance of pop-up showers and storms on Tuesday and Wednesday, but otherwise, dry conditions are expected. Temperatures will range from the upper 80s to the lower 90s on both days. However, while the overnight low for Tuesday is expected to be in the lower-to-mid 60s, the low for Wednesday night will only drop into the mid-to-upper 60s and lower 70s.

Thursday may see scattered showers and storms throughout the day, so bring your rain gear if you have plans. Aside from the possibility of rain, Thursday’s temperatures will be warm, with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. A few of these storms may last into the night, with temperatures dropping to the mid-to-upper 60s.

To recapitulate, this weekend, mostly dry conditions are expected, but there is a slight chance for showers and storms Sunday, mainly in the evening. Temperatures will also start to climb this weekend, reaching the upper 80s and lower 90s by Sunday. As we enter the first half of next week, mostly dry conditions will prevail, but showers and storms are still possible. Temperatures will remain warm and similar to Sunday for the next week as we approach July.
