Scattered showers and a few isolated thunderstorms remain possible this evening, but we do not expect widespread, plan-disrupting rain or storms.

Total rainfall in a few spots may add up to more than a tenth or quarter-inch, but most of us get little to nothing at all.

A weak cool front passes through the Valley tonight ending the chance of showers for most of us by daybreak; however, some additional showers (isolated storms) are possible Wednesday afternoon and evening generally southeast of Madison and Morgan Counties toward Brindlee Mountain, Sand Mountain and Lookout Mountain. Expect highs near 80ºF Wednesday afternoon with a light northeast breeze.

Spotty showers in a summer-like pattern: The weather pattern this week looks like summer; it may not be hot enough for a real summertime feel yet, but the features influencing our weather are very much like what we would see in June or July.

That means we cannot totally get rid of the chance of a few spotty, hit-or-miss, brief showers and/or thunderstorms through the Easter Weekend. On the other hand, the odds of rain are so low that you should not cancel any plans.
