Through the day, isolated showers and storms are possible again, but mainly across Sand Mountain and higher elevations. Any storms that develop will be capable of producing brief, gusty wind and locally heavy downpours. Even then, storms will be few and far between and most of the Tennessee Valley will remain hot and partly cloudy.
Speaking of heat...highs for the next few days won't be quite to record values, but we will be getting close. Upper 80s and lower 90s will be the story through Mother's Day, making for a summer-like weekend. The good news today is that our southwesterly wind gusting up to 20 mph should create a somewhat relieving afternoon breeze.
The next "better" chance of rain and storms holds off until next week. Tuesday and Wednesday, to be exact. We'll have scattered showers and storms return to the forecast and temperatures will dip a bit to the upper 80s.
