An active weather pattern sets up this week as Spring-time temps continue. We’ll be quiet overnight, but a round of strong-to-severe storms is expected to push into the Valley Monday afternoon. Another round of stormy weather looks to take shape on Thursday.
Skies will be mostly cloudy Sunday night with lows in the upper 50s and lower 60s. A passing shower is possible Monday morning, but most will remain dry as skies become cloudy. A south breeze around 10 mph should pick up through the day. Temperatures will warm quickly despite the cloudiness with readings into the mid 70s by the afternoon.
The threat for severe storms will be higher west of the Valley across MS and west TN into Monday afternoon. As storms shift east with time, they will track into the Valley…likely around 2-5 p.m. for the Shoals.
Locally, the threat for stronger storms will be highest west of I-65 with the storms expected to weaken as they track east. Isolated storms could produce damaging wind gusts of 60 mph as well as quarter-size or larger hail.
Those storms could be into the HSV Metro area during the evening commute. By 10p-Midnight, the threat will shift out of northeastern AL with only lingering rain showers into Tuesday morning.
Look for a warm Tuesday afternoon despite a fair amount of cloud cover through the day. Highs will be into the upper 70s. Temps will approach 80° Wednesday afternoon.
Skies should be mostly sunny then, but isolated storms may pop up during the afternoon hours. Clouds will increase into Thursday ahead of our next weather maker. Another round of more widespread rain and storms should develop late Thursday and could continue into Friday.
Strong storms look possible with this system as well, but it’s too early to get specific with threats. You’ll want to keep checking back for updates as we go through the week. We should be cooler behind this system with highs staying in the 60s Friday. Saturday looks nice with mostly sunny skies and lower 70s.
