Scattered showers and thunderstorms will track westward across Northwest Alabama through around 8 PM. Severe thunderstorms are not likely, but heavy rain and frequent lightning can come from those storms. The storms focused on Sand Mountain this afternoon, but the primary focus is shifting west of I-65 through the evening. The storms will mostly end by 9 PM. The heavier storms can bring a quick inch of rain, but areas will get a quarter-inch or less. A few isolated showers are possible through around midnight. The rest of the night will be mostly cloudy.

Tuesday will be partly to mostly cloudy and warm. We will have a few showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon, but most of the Tennessee Valley will stay dry. Thunderstorms can bring heavy rain and frequent lightning to localized areas. Those showers can begin developing between noon and 2 PM. They will end between 5 PM and 6 PM.

A disturbance passing just south of us on Wednesday will mean a few 4th of July showers and thunderstorms. If that disturbance is closer to us, it can mean more widespread showers and storms. A cold front will bring another higher concentration of showers and thunderstorms on Friday. The rain will wind down late Saturday. Slightly cooler and noticeably drier air will arrive on Sunday.
