Tuesday’s chance of scattered showers and storms includes a few heavy downpours, but most communities in North Alabama and Southern Tennessee won’t get enough rain to measure.

Expect two opportunities for some showers/storms. Some spotty develop ones in the morning hours between 3 AM and 7 AM around The Shoals, Waynesboro, Lawrenceburg, Pulaski (and a small, small chance for Athens-Decatur-Huntsville).

Another round of pop-up, hit-or-miss, uneven showers and isolated thunderstorms begins in the early afternoon: lasting from about 1 PM and 8 PM.

Temperatures rise into the lower and middle 90s with those hit-or-miss downpours around in the afternoon.

It will be warm and humid all day, so if you leave a car window cracked or plan to be outside for a while in the afternoon, keep an eye out for the chance of showers.

Look for showers and storms to rumble around all week; this is good-but-not-great news for the drought. We need a lot more rain than we will get!  The Seven Day Forecast and all the nuts and bolts can be found here on WHNT.com!
