Despite more cloud cover Tuesday, highs still manage to reach the mid-80s which is near average for early June. A few stray showers and an isolated storm can't be ruled out today but the chances are low and mostly confined to our western counties beginning late this afternoon.
A cold front is slowly tracking toward the Tennessee Valley and storm chances are gradually increasing as the front approaches. The latest guidance is more progressive with the front which increases the coverage of storms Wednesday. For areas near and west of I-65 scattered to widespread storms are antipated throughout the entire day Wednesday. A couple of strong storms look possible especially in northwest Alabama. A Marginal Risk (1 out of 5 severe threat) from the Storm Prediction Center now outlines counties near and west of I-65 for Wednesday.
Temperatures dip into the upper 70s Thursday but back up to mid-80s Friday through this weekend. As the front hangs out just to our south, storms may stay in play for North Alabama this weekend. At this point, isolated to scattered storms expected each afternoon.
