Storms have made their presence known across the area through the evening and overnight hours, and they continue early on this Wednesday morning well before daybreak. These storms will continue to weaken as they shift southward through northwest Alabama over the next few hours. Where rain has fallen, temperatures have cooled down to the 70-72 range, with upper 70s to even lower 80s remaining farther west where conditions have been mostly dry.
High resolution modeling isn't doing the best job in the world with the current storms, but I think it has at least a respectable handle on what to expect for our Wednesday. The current storms look to continue southward and mostly fade away by daybreak, but we can't 100% rule out a lingering shower or storm into the morning hours. By late morning and midday, scattered redevelopment looks possible either over far southern Tennessee or northern Alabama before continuing to shift southward through north Alabama through the afternoon. A few of these storms may have small hail or gusty winds, especially once they get south of the Tennessee River. By evening, these storms will be shifting south of our area into central Alabama.
Rain chances then take a break for Thursday through Saturday as deeper moisture shifts south of the area. Those rain and storm chances do return in scattered fashion by Sunday and especially early next week though. Temperatures look to stay near seasonable averages for the next 5 to 7 days, with afternoon highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s, morning lows between the mid 60s and lower 70s, and heat index values staying below 100 for the most part.
