WEATHER SUMMARY: Another cool day for the Valley as we close out August 2015. Most of the month saw temperatures below normal. Even through we hit 100 back on the 5th. The many days of rain kept our temperatures fairly cool. We also saw well above normal amounts of rain for Huntsville and the Shoals.
The Tennessee Valley has had a cooler than average month of August. Nineteen out of the 30 days so far for August we have either been at or below average temperatures for this time of year!

DRIER START TO THE WORK WEEK: After a wet weekend, we'll have a dry and cool start to the work week. I won't completely rule out a stray shower, but most should be dry. Many locations will enjoy sunshine and temps holding in the mid 80's. Although the temps will be cool, we'll have humidity hanging around so it'll still feel muggy outside. This stretch of weather is expected to last into the mid week.

Currently seeing widespread showers and thunderstorms across the Tennessee valley. These storms are slow moving with a lot of rain, locally heavy rain expected in places that see rain. 1 to 2 inches could fall in a very short time frame as the showers slowly move off towards the east.

WEATHER SUMMARY: A mid level trough will begin to develop this weekend and the effects will be felt in the Valley. This will be in the form of a few showers and storms. Severe weather is not expected but locally heavy rains and gusty winds would be the biggest threats. The early parts of next week will be dry with the exception of a sporadic shower.
A southeasterly flow of winds move in to pump in warm, muggy air from the Gulf. With plenty of sunshine to go around today, unstable conditions this afternoon will favor a few pop up showers in the forecast. I do not expect anything severe, just a brief heavy burst of rain with wind gusts in excess of 20 to 30 mph.

WEATHER SUMMARY: High pressure will be pushed further to the east as we go into the weekend. Winds will be more out of the south and that will bring in Gulf moisture. This will make things feel a lot more humid starting Friday through the foreseeable future. Dew points will consistently be in the mid to upper 60s.
