Not quite as hot this week. Running mostly dry except for a midweek rain chance.
After some welcome and beneficial rain during the first half of the weekend, all is quiet across the Tennessee Valley early on this Monday morning. The frontal boundary that brought showers and thunderstorms to the area on Saturday has shifted southward to the Gulf Coast, and slightly drier air has moved in behind it. This has allowed temperatures early this morning to drop into the upper 60s and lower 70s by the 1:00 AM hour, and many of us may begin our Monday morning as low as the mid to upper 60s by daybreak.
Weather looks to stay not to shabby for today, with partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies in place. We climb through the 70s into the 80s by late morning, and then we top out in the upper 80s and lower 90s by afternoon.
Weather for most of the week will be rather uneventful across the Tennessee Valley. A weak frontal boundary crosses the area on Wednesday, bringing a few showers and thunderstorms to the area late Tuesday night and into parts of Wednesday. Right now, it doesn't look like the storms will be as widespread as on Saturday with the front moving through earlier in the day. This may be a case where the rain and storms develop on top of us and then become more widespread as they shift south of our area. Aside from that, we look to stay dry for much of the week. Daytime highs will be in the upper 80s to lower 90s (maybe a few mid 90s over north Alabama at times). Morning lows will range from the mid/upper 60s to the lower 70s.
The tropics are staying quiet overall. The only system we're really watching is the remnant disturbance from the Saturday storms. That has shifted into the northern Gulf and has stalled out. There is a low but non-zero chance that system may try to gradually develop into a tropical depression this week. No major system is expected IF it does develop.
