Showers and thunderstorms are targeting Northeast Alabama this evening. They're moving through Jackson, DeKalb, and Marshall counties, bringing lightning, heavy rain, a 30-40 mph wind gusts. The storms are weakening as they track southeastward at 20-25 mph. They will move southward out of Marshall and DeKalb counties by just after 6 PM.

The chance for rain will drop off by 7-8 PM, and the rest of tonight will be quiet and somewhat muggy beneath a partly cloudy sky. Your Friday morning drive will be free of any weather-related concerns. Morning clouds will thin by lunch time, and the sky will brighten as the sun comes out. A stray shower or thunderstorm is possible tomorrow afternoon, but very few of us will see any rain if anyone does.

Your drive home tonight comes with a few showers and thunderstorms, especially from near Huntsville to the Georgia state line.

Temperatures will drop through the 80s and into the 70s after 7 PM. Friday morning will be cloudy with muggy 60s warming to 70s by 8 AM. We will warm into the 80s by noon and into the lower 90s briefly. Even warmer low-to-mid 90s are in the forecast on Saturday and Sunday. This weekend will be dry and hot. The chance for rain will return to the Tennesese Valley and help to tame the heat starting Tuesday.
