HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT)– After a dry, warm and very breezy Sunday afternoon, rain will find its way back into the Tennessee Valley on Monday.

While severe weather is very unlikely, this may end up being a pretty significant rain event for some of us.

A slow-moving cold front will create widespread areas of rain and thunderstorms Monday afternoon through early Tuesday morning. The rain may begin as early as the late morning hours for communities out in the Shoals. Flip through the gallery below for a general timeline on when to expect the heaviest rain where you live.

We expect there will still be widespread rain around for the Tuesday morning commute. The cold front finally pushes south of the area Tuesday morning, and our chance of rain ends around midday. All told, rain amounts will average between 1 and 3 inches, with the highest amounts most likely occurring in Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale and Lawrence Counties.
