A stray light shower is possible this evening, especially over the Shoals, but most of the Tennessee Valley will stay dry for the evening drive and for an evening jog.

The WAAY 31 Storm Tracker Weather Team is tracking a developing storm system over the Great Plains. That storm system is the next weather maker for the Tennessee Valley. It will bring rain to the Valley starting Thursday. Friday will likely be the bigger rain day. Rainy periods can last through the weekend and into early next week.

Wednesday will be mainly dry. Sun will be filtered by increasing clouds. The day will start with muggy lower 70s for the kids' trip out to the bus stop. Your lunch drive looks dry and warm with temperatures near 90. A couple of spotty showers can form in the afternoon, but nearly all of the Valley will stay dry. The small chance for rain starts between noon and 2 PM and lasts through 6-7 PM. High temperatures will be in the low 90s.

The Thursday morning drive will likely be dry. Rain will begin increasing over the Shoals between 10 AM and 1 PM. That rain will fill in across I-65 near Athens and Decatur and spread east toward Huntsville, Madison, and Fayetteville between 1 PM and 4 PM. Rain will increase over Sand Mountain 2 PM and 5 PM.
