Very warm next few days, shower and storm chances, but no big storm systems this week.

Radar is quiet this afternoon after a few showers and thunderstorms last night and lingering showers in parts of the area this morning. Clouds are still in place though, but this hasn't stopped warm temperatures this afternoon. All of us have made our way into the upper 60s and lower 70s. We have even warmer weather ahead the next couple of days!

Skies will stay mostly cloudy to overcast, but we look to stay dry overnight. Those clouds and a persistent southerly wind will help keep temperatures up. We're only expecting temperatures to drop into the mid to maybe lower 60s as we head toward daybreak on Wednesday morning across the Tennessee Valley.

Wednesday will be a windy and even warmer day, with daytime highs climbing well into the mid to upper 70s, and a few folks will probably briefly hit 80 degrees, especially over northern Alabama. Southerly gradient winds may gust as high as 35 to 40 mph at times during the day. A few showers will be possible into the afternoon, and then a few isolated thunderstorms will be possible during the early to mid evening as a weak disturbance moves through. We are not expecting any severe storms with this activity. Those will continue to shift northeast through the mid to late evening with maybe a stray lingering shower during the overnight. Low temperatures look to hang out in the mid 60s.

Thursday will be the warmest day, as we will stay be under subtropical ridging ahead of the approaching cold front, but we will have a bit more sunshine. Daytime highs most everywhere will likely hit the lower 80s! Big changes are on the way though as that cold front passes through. We will be down to the mid 50s for highs on Friday! The good news is that we do not have the instability or the dynamic support necessary for a severe storm risk as that cold front moves through. A few showers will be possible Friday, and then a better chance of showers exists on Saturday as that front waffles back north as a weak warm front. Temperatures over the weekend start moderating toward the 60s, and we are likely near 70 again by Monday as another storm system brings the chance of showers and storms to the area early next week. THAT one MIGHT have to be watched for a strong storm threat, but for now, too much model disagreement to formally raise the flag about it. We'll be watching carefully!
