Sunny and warm today, hot rest of the week. Storms this weekend and then cooler temps to follow.

It's another mostly sunny and beautiful day across the Tennessee Valley on this Tuesday with high pressure centered over the area. Just a few high clouds are making their way through. Temperatures are a bit warmer than yesterday, already into the lower 80s for almost everyone, and we will likely warm a few more degrees as we continue to head through the afternoon hours.

Clouds increase a bit as we head into the evening and overnight as a weak disturbance from Arkansas moves across the Mississippi River and toward our area. However, that disturbance will be falling apart, and we look to remain dry as it moves in. Wednesday will be an even warmer day, with partly cloudy skies and highs in the upper 80s and lower 90s for everyone.

Although we can't 100% rule out a stray shower or storm Wednesday or Thursday, it looks like the focus for showers and storms will remain north of our area. We will continue to be hot, near or into the lower 90s through Friday. As we head into the weekend, a cold front approaches the area, and the chance of showers and storms significantly increases for Saturday into Sunday (including overnight Saturday night). Some of the rainfall could be locally heavy at times, but it won't be an all day washout at any one point. As is always the case this time of year, some of the storms may have gusty winds or small hail as well, but we don't see a signal for an organized severe weather threat.

That cold front over the weekend will be in association with a trough of low pressure that moves through the area bringing significantly cooler air by Sunday into early next week. Daytime highs look to return to the mid to upper 70s Sunday through at least Tuesday, with morning lows back into the 50s, maybe even the lower 50s by Monday morning.
