Spotty showers, some of them heavy, will linger through about 7 PM on our Monday evening. While not everyone will see rain, those of us who do can get a quick quarter-inch to a half-inch in a half hour. There can be some wet and slippery spots on our roads, too. Be careful on that drive home.

After 7 PM, the rest of tonight will be dry. Lower humidity will mean fast cooling. Low temperatures by morning will be in the upper 60s. A few showers are possible Tuesday starting around noon. Showers will be fewer than those of Monday. Temperatures will top out in the mid-80s. The showers will linger through no later than 7-8 PM.

Even fewer showers are in Wednesday's forecast. Thursday and Friday will likely be dry. Highs will gradually climb into the lower 90s by the end of the week. Those lower 90s are close to normal for this time of year. Long range forecasts indicate that lower-than-normal temperatures are growing increasingly likely from late July through the middle 0f August. That's not a bad deal considering this is historically the hottest part of our summer in the Tennessee Valley.
