NICE, WARM TUESDAY; RAIN & STORMS RETURN THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY… Get out and enjoy the sunshine today as sunny skies will certainly be harder to come by later this week. Full sunshine is expected on this Tuesday with high temperatures near 80 in most locales this afternoon. More active weather is on the way for Wednesday and Thursday. We could see a few showers locally on Wednesday evening ahead of higher rain chances on Thursday. We will be tracking strong to severe thunderstorms well to our northwest on Wednesday. There is at least some chance of a few stronger storms across Tennessee and north Alabama on Thursday. In addition, the upcoming weekend will likely be unsettled with chances of rain on both Saturday and Sunday. I’ve got all of your Tuesday morning forecast details below.

INCREASING CLOUDINESS ON WEDNESDAY; FEW SHOWERS LATE… Cloud coverage will increase throughout the day on Wednesday ahead of a few, highly isolated showers becoming possible late in the day. Rain chances will be greatest tomorrow (Wednesday) likely after 3PM. There is a high chance most communities across our region will remain dry, but inevitably, some areas will have rain before the end of the day. High temperatures on Wednesday will be in the low-80s.

SEVERE WEATHER RISK TO OUR NORTHWEST ON WEDNESDAY… The Storm Prediction Center maintains a Level 2 (out of 5) severe weather risk for parts of the northern half of Mississippi, northern Louisiana, and much of Arkansas valid for Wednesday. Damaging winds and a few tornadoes may become possible in those areas tomorrow. We note parts of west Alabama are involved in the low-end, Level 1 (out of 5) risk valid for Wednesday into early Thursday, including parts of Choctaw and Washington counties locally. Clearly, the greater severe weather issues on Wednesday into early Thursday will likely be to our north and west.

THUNDERSTORMS AT TIMES THURSDAY… Showers and thunderstorms are likely at times on Thursday into Friday across our region as a frontal boundary approaches from our northwest and ultimately stalls out. There is a chance that a few strong to marginally severe thunderstorms may be possible across parts of south Alabama and northwest Florida on Thursday into Friday under some scenarios, although it is a bit too early to know specifics. This is something we will be monitoring closely over the next few hours. I will have another detailed update on this potential later today.

MORE RAIN & STORMS ON FRIDAY… Our local area will remain in the warm sector out ahead of a frontal boundary on Friday, allowing more showers and thunderstorms to develop across our region. Thunderstorms will likely be scattered in nature, meaning an “all day washout” event on Friday seems unlikely.

UNSETTLED PATTERN CONTINUES INTO THE WEEKEND… We finally see signs of the cold front sliding across our region perhaps on Sunday in the afternoon hours. Until then, we maintain a chance of showers and thunderstorms on Saturday and on Sunday, mainly in the morning hours. Highs this weekend will be around the 80 degree mark with morning lows in the 60s.
