A hot and increasingly rainy pattern takes shape on Monday to start the new week. Data sources continue to pinpoint a line of showers and storms moving through North Alabama this afternoon. One or two storms could be strong to borderline severe as the approach the Alabama-Tennessee border. Gusty winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rain will be possible with the stronger storms by mid to late afternoon.

Today's thunderstorm activity will fade around sunset this evening but we still need to watch storms well of to the northwest closely.  Stronger thunderstorm complexes from out of Missouri and Kentucky could survive and drop south into North Alabama prior to sunrise Tuesday morning.

The wet weather pattern continues with increasing shower and storm chances through the rest of the week. The most widespread rain chances look to be Wednesday into the upcoming weekend. Data sources are struggling with pinpointing the greatest chances for rain mid to late week, meaning some adjustments to the forecast will be made as we go through the week. Stay tuned for updates as the forecast continues to evolve. Despite the higher rain chances, the heat sticks around. Highs will continue to hover in the low to mid 90s with feels like temperatures as high as 105 degrees by Wednesday. Continue to stay cool, drink lots of water, and take frequent breaks if you plan on being outside for extended periods of time this week.
