After light snow and bitterly cold…It is only going up from here on out. Temperatures will finally start to feel more like Spring to round out the week. With the warming weather, comes wetter weather, though. Right now it looks like we’ll see a couple rounds of wet weather: late Thursday into Friday and Friday night into early Saturday.
While we could see some scattered thunderstorm activity during this timeframe, the overall severe threat is not very impressive. The stronger round of storms will likely be Friday night into Saturday morning. The Storm Prediction Center has the TN Valley highlighted in the standard ‘slight risk’ area for an isolated wind gust of 50-60mph. While this system appears to be pretty weak, we are in the heart of severe weather season and will keep you updated on any changes.
The Break Down:
While an isolated shower or 2 is possible on Thursday, most of the activity will be well to our west.
Those storms will be weakening as the roll into the Tennessee Valley. We’ll be tracking showers and a few rumbles of thunder on WAFF48 News Today on Friday morning.
We will probably see a break in the wet weather, for the most part, on Friday afternoon and evening..maybe even a few peeks of sunshine. By the late evening, another, stronger round of storms will begin rolling into the TN Valley.
This will likely continue on a weakening, but still potential strong, trend during the overnight hours.
A few showers will linger into Saturday morning but then we’ll be looking at a mostly dry and warm weekend!
We’ll be tweaking the timing and strength of this system in the coming days so be sure to check back for updates.
