Low clouds streamed in from the south this morning but stalled near and south of the Tennessee River. This has allowed for mostly sunny skies and a quick warm up heading into Wednesday afternoon. The humid, tropical air mass remains in places which means highs in the low 90s will bring heat index values in the triple digits.
Our rain, thunderstorm chances are not zero today but remain very low, especially for areas east of I-65. If we do see a storm or two today it will be for areas closer to the Shoals.
For the end of the week, a few more storms are expected both Thursday and Friday. It's due to a stalled out front, currently parked to our northwest, drifting southeastward and finally passing through North Alabama later Friday. This front brings a much welcomed change to the weather pattern just in time for the holiday weekend.
In the wake of the cold front, temperatures dip to the mid 60s Saturday morning. It might seem cool, but it’s actually pretty seasonable for this time of year. Highs make it to the mid 80s under a mostly sunny sky. The biggest difference will be one you can’t see: the humidity. Drier air is on the way, making for more comfortable conditions region-wide. Sunday brings similar weather and by Labor Day, isolated storm chances are back and highs return to the upper 80s.
