We’ll see a bit of a lull in activity before our next round of wet weather arrives. A few spotty, passing showers and maybe a rumble of thunder are possible throughout the day though. More widespread stormy weather arrives late tonight, overnight, and into early Saturday morning.
Throughout the day, showers and thunderstorms will develop to our south and west and track north and east. Some strong to severe storms are possible, especially this afternoon to our west.
Once the sun sets, storms will begin weakening. However, they could still be strong and possibly severe as they initially enter extreme western AL during the late night hours. They will continue on the weakening trend as they move east across the TN Valley with just general, non-severe thunderstorms expected.
The overall threat for severe weather, even in extreme NW AL, is low with this system. If we get a severe thunderstorm warning it will likely be for a damaging wind gust of 40-60mph. Some small hail is also possible. Pockets of heavy rain, wind gusts up to 30mph, and frequent lightning is likely all across the TN Valley so don’t be surprised if that wakes you up during the night.
Showers will start the day on Saturday but a cool north breeze of 10-15mph will usher in drier air throughout the day. We’ll see clearing skies and highs in the mid 60s. Sunday will start out a bit chilly but abundant sunshine will warm temperatures to near 70°.
