Clouds will be increasing as we head into this afternoon. An isolated shower is possible this morning but the higher chance for rain and storms will hold off until the afternoon. Scattered storms can be expected, and some of them will be strong with frequent lightning, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain.
Outside of the storms, winds should switch to the north around 10 mph. While rain is not a guarantee for everyone, storm coverage this afternoon should be more widespread than it was over the weekend. Storms should fade away as the sun sets.
Look for partly cloudy skies overnight with lows in the lower 70s. We’ll see a mix of sun and clouds on Tuesday, and isolated showers are possible through the first half of the day. The higher chance for rain in the afternoon will shift south of the TN River and into central AL.
Highs will top out in the upper 80s, and a north wind should lead to a slight drop in humidity. Lows will drop into the upper 60s under mainly clear skies into Wednesday morning. We’ll see mostly sunny skies Wednesday, but highs should stay in the upper 80s. That night should be the coolest of the week with lows dipping into the mid 60s.
The humidity will begin to increase as we finish the work week. We should stay dry Thursday with highs around 90° and lows into the upper 60s overnight. A stray shower or storm is possible Friday, but higher rain chances will move in over the weekend. Highs should be near 90° with lows back into the lower 70s for Saturday and Sunday. Scattered storms are possible both afternoons.
