Periods of heavy rain and embedded thunderstorms will be possible through the overnight.  We could even see over 1" of rain for isolated areas through Monday morning.  By lunchtime all of North Alabama should be back to dry weather for the rest of Monday.

That dry window will last until more showers and storms arrive Tuesday morning. A warm front will move across the region early Tuesday morning, bringing the chance for more showers. As this warm front moves northward into Tennessee, we will be in the warm sector, with plenty of moisture streaming into the area as well. That will set the stage for the potential for strong to severe storms developing along a cold front that moves through Tuesday afternoon and evening. It is still too early to get into the specifics at the moment, but all modes of severe weather are in the table as this cold front moves through. We will continue to fine tune the forecast in the days to come, so be sure to check back with us throughout the weekend for updates.

The cold front that moves will not be bringing much of a cool down to the area as it moves through Wednesday. In fact, we will actually warm up for the latter half of the week. Many areas will see highs in the 80s for the first time this year Thursday and Friday. Rain chances are back in the forecast next weekend.
