Drought conditions worsen. Will the incoming cold front help us out?

The new weekly U.S Drought Monitor update is in, and the Tennessee Valley is only getting drier. Part of the area is now in an extreme drought, which is depicted in red. Tennessee’s seasonal burn ban began back on October 15th. Alabama is also under a statewide burn ban. Tishomingo County, MS is not currently […]

Dry and warm through the weekend. Big weather changes early next week!

It’s another partly sunny and warm late October day across the Tennessee Valley on this Wednesday. An upper-level high pressure ridge is centered over the Southeast, and a surface high is off toward the North Carolina coast. This is allowing a persistent southerly wind and plenty of sunshine. Temperatures this afternoon are into the upper […]

Warm this week with a few spotty rain chances.

I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend! While we don’t have rain on this Monday, it’s still giving very much gloomy vibes with a mostly cloudy sky. We’ve got a nice stretch of warm days ahead. Our average high temperature this time of year is in the lower 70s, and we’ll be in the upper […]

Showers and maybe a thunderstorm this evening. Drier for the weekend. Warmer next week.

Some areas have already managed to see a little light rain so far today! We’ve had a batch of light showers work through mainly northwest Alabama during the late morning and midday, and several locations in the Shoals saw enough rain to wet the pavement nicely, with dual-pol radar estimates ranging from 0.05″ to 0.10″ […]

If you’re a sunshine lover, today is your day. We have much more sunshine overhead compared to yesterday. Enjoy it while you can, though, because it’ll be short lived. This evening will be pleasant, with temps peaking in the lower 70s eventually falling into the 60s & 50s. You’ll likely need a light jacket if […]

Sunshine and a warming trend returns. So do late week rain chances!

Temperatures are on the seasonably cool side early on this Tuesday morning, in the upper 40s to lower 50s for most of us as we head toward 3:00am. However, they are running a few degrees above the forecast we’d had for the overnight. This is because of pesky low cloud cover still hanging tough early […]

It’s not too bad of a Thursday across the Tennessee Valley with a partly cloudy sky and temps in the 70s. Expect the rest of today to be pleasant, with a few minor changes coming tomorrow. Lows tonight will get down into the lower 60s, with a mostly clear to partly cloudy sky. Clouds will […]

All is quiet across the Tennessee Valley early on this Wednesday morning. Mid to high clouds continue to thicken across the area as they move northward in association with a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico that will bring the chance of a couple of showers to our area later today and much more widespread […]
