Daily storm chances continue. Warm and humid conditions take us through the weekend.

It’s feeling like summertime in the south again. Which means that scattered showers and storms are a common occurrence. The hot and humid air during the summer months creates the perfect conditions for the formation of these storms. Once these storms develop, they can move through the area quickly, leaving behind a trail of rain and sometimes even hail.

Today it’s warm and it seems like summer is already here with high temperatures in the lower 80s and upper 70s. However, don’t let the nice temperatures deceive you – they will drop to the 60s tonight and showers and thunderstorms are expected this afternoon, this timing is perfect for those busy running errands or picking up their children from school. There will be a break early this evening, there is still a high chance for scattered showers later tonight.

The rain continues Friday with scattered showers throughout the day with a higher chance of precipitation in the Shoals area. It’s a great day to stay indoors and start your summer reading while curled up under a cozy blanket. Thunderstorms are possible particularly in the morning before 4pm. High temperatures for the day are expected to be in the upper 70s to lower 80s before falling to the 60s at night. The chance for scattered thunderstorms will continue into the night but they are expected to be less likely as we approach midnight.

Storm chances continue throughout the weekend. While you don’t have to cancel your plans, it’s always a good idea to stay vigilant and have a backup plan in case your event or plans gets interrupted by showers or thunderstorms. On Saturday, temperatures will remain hot with highs in the 80s and will fall to the 60s at night. The chance for showers and thunderstorms is lower in the morning, so if you're planning a date night, consider going out for lunch instead of dinner and pack an umbrella just in case. The same rule applies for Sunday, there is still a chance for scattered showers and storms throughout the day but otherwise mostly sunny skies and highs in the 80s once again. As the night progresses temperatures will drop to the 60s and a few storms may linger into the night.

Moving on to the beginning of next week, it looks like we are finally getting a bit of relief from the summer-like heat with a cold front moving across the region. However, it comes with a tradeoff – there is a higher chance for showers and thunderstorms on Monday. Despite the higher chance for storms, to many people the tradeoff is definitely worth the cooler weather. Temperatures on Monday will likely drop to the 70s during the day and even fall to the 60s, maybe even the upper 50s at night. On Tuesday, temperatures continue in the 70s for the day and 60s for the night.

I know everyone is getting tired of the heat and rainy days. Well here’s some great news for you! Wednesday is shaping up to be the perfect day to be outdoors without melting from the heat or getting caught in the rain. The skies will be partly cloudy and temperatures will drop with highs only reaching the low 70s. At night, the temperature will dip down to the lower 50s. It’s the perfect kind of weather for spending time outside whether you want to go for a walk, have a lovely picnic, or just lounge in the backyard. So, don’t miss out on this wonderful opportunity to soak up some fresh air and enjoy the great outdoors.

Overall, it’s likely to be a consistent remainder of the week of showers and thunderstorms, providing a nice break from the heat. While a little rain is a good thing, we all know that too much rain can make things feel a bit gloomy after a while. Luckily, next week is looking a bit drier, which means more opportunities to enjoy some sunshine and outdoor activities.
