Once the fog clears we will see passing high clouds and haze from the Western wildfires the rest of this morning and into Monday afternoon. Temperatures will climb to the upper-80s this afternoon with partly to mostly sunny skies. Combined with higher humidity it will make for muggy conditions Monday afternoon but mostly dry through tonight.
Rain chances today are very low with only a stray pop-up or two expected through Monday evening. Tuesday's coverage will be slightly higher but still isolated in nature. It takes until Wednesday and Thursday before what's left of Tropical Storm Nicholas has any impacts on north Alabama.
Nicholas will slide along the Texas and Louisiana coasts through Wednesday. However, increased Gulf moisture from Nicholas combined with a stalled frontal boundary to our north will lead to higher rain chances Wednesday through Friday if not Saturday. Rainfall amounts around 1" to 2" are expected this week but still a lot of uncertainty in the track of Nicholas' remnants and impacts here in north Alabama.
