Mild and dry for today and tomorrow. Rain arrives for the second half of the week.


After some morning cloud cover and even a few showers south of the Tennessee River over north Alabama, we are back to mostly sunny skies this afternoon. We still have a little in the way of high-level cloud cover working through the area, but there's plenty of sunshine, and that has allowed temperatures to warm into the lower 60s for most areas this afternoon.


We are near where daytime highs will max out this afternoon, and then we fall into the 50s by 4:00-5:00 PM as we head toward sunset and then into the 40s during the evening hours. Skies stay mostly clear, and that allows the area to drop into the low to mid 30s for overnight lows by daybreak on Wednesday morning.


Clouds begin to increase as we head into Wednesday, but rain stays well off to our west. Daytime highs will again be in the lower 60s, with a few folks maybe getting close to the mid 60s briefly. The morning and midday of Thanksgiving look dry for our local area, but showers move in by the afternoon and evening, and then steady and potentially heavy rain moves into the area overnight and into the morning hours of Friday. Our local area looks to see a good 1-3 inches of rain, and areas over north Alabama south of the Tennessee River may see isolated totals a touch higher than that. The rain temporarily shifts out going into Friday afternoon, but it returns again Friday night into Saturday morning. Temperatures look to stay seasonal through the weekend with highs in the upper 50s to lower 60s and morning lows in the 40s, if not the 50s. The rain clears out for Sunday through Tuesday before another storm system may possibly bring a chance of showers and thunderstorms to the area around the middle of next week, just beyond the timeframe of our 7 Day Forecast.
