Humidity slowly increases over the weekend setting us up for a steamy set of days with a few pop-up, hit-or-miss, heat-of-the-day showers and thunderstorms on Sunday and Monday.
There is a better chance of some scattered storms on Monday and especially Tuesday.
What to expect this weekend: Rain chances climb a bit on Sunday, but it’s mainly hit-or-miss “pop-up” showers and isolated storms. In other words, if you get rain, it’s either your lucky or unlucky day depending on how you view the situation!
Scattered storms look more likely in Tennessee on Monday, and the chance actually increases in North Alabama on Monday night and Tuesday morning as storms to the north get closer and closer to the Valley. Click here for a more detailed Fourth of July forecast.

Extremely hot weather possible soon: Huntsville has not hit 100ºF in 2016, but we have come close: two days at 99ºF. Once the scattered storms from Monday and Tuesday pass by, it gets awfully hot for the rest of next week. Expect high temperatures from 97ºF to 102ºF with a heat index as high as 105ºF to 110ºF. The drought will rapidly expand and worsen without substantial rain and that kind of heat.
