HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – After dry, sunny days Thursday and Friday, wet weather will return to the Tennessee Valley this weekend.

A slow-moving storm system located over the Desert Southwest is picking up carrying moisture from the Pacific (in the form of high clouds) across Texas and Louisiana into Alabama. Clouds begin moving overhead Friday afternoon and the sky will become overcast by Saturday morning.

Light rain may begin moving into the Shoals as early as 10 a.m. Saturday, but for most areas, the rain will not move in until the afternoon.

This will not be a continuous day-after-day kind of rain – there will be breaks in the rain that could last anywhere from 30 minutes to a few hours. Use Live Alert 19 to help you navigate around the showers this weekend, especially if you are tying to hang outdoor decorations or attend any events.

Heavy rain, storms possible Monday night

A wave of low pressure tracks near us Monday night going into Tuesday. This feature will bring us a better opportunity for heavier rain and even storms. The rain should come to an end before midday Tuesday.

It does not appear we will have to deal with severe weather this time.

Additional rain amounts between Saturday and Tuesday morning of one to three inches are possible.
