Scattered storms through tomorrow. A break Thursday. Rainy Friday into the weekend.

Another day, more showers and thunderstorms across the area. They are rather widespread over portions of middle Tennessee early this afternoon, with additional scattered storms over northeast Mississippi and northwest Alabama. Elsewhere, skies are partly sunny with temperatures areawide today in the low to mid 80s.

Futurecast isn't doing too well with the exact placement of storms today, but it is doing a pretty good job of showing the general idea of a somewhat organized round of scattered showers and storms. These will continue into the evening before dissipating overnight with the loss of daytime heating. Morning lows look to start in the upper 60s to near 70. As we head into the midday hours of Wednesday and warm into the mid 80s, scattered showers and storms once again develop for the afternoon and early evening ahead.

The remnants of the stalled frontal boundary to our north will push through the area Wednesday night into Thursday, temporarily ending rain chances for Thursday. We're not quite brave enough to completely remove rain chances because of how our luck runs lol, but we have dropped things down to 10 percent. That is short-lived, with an upper-level low to our southwest Friday into the weekend. That will again pump deep moisture northward into the area, increasing rain chances once again. Periods of rain look likely for Friday and the weekend, and we will probably be further increasing rain chances. Some of the rainfall may be heavy at times, and there may be additional flooding concerns. Daytime highs through Thursday will be in the mid 80s, but with clouds and rain chances increasing Friday into the weekend, daytime highs will be dropping into the lower 80s, if not the upper 70s.

A quick look at the tropics has Danielle and Earl still spinning out in the Atlantic, but both systems are moving northward and away from the United States. Additional waves are coming off the coast of Africa, and there may possibly be additional development out in the Atlantic, but the overall steering currents right now do not favor any of these long-track Atlantic systems approaching the United States.
