Two waves of storms, then turning colder again
A slow-moving storm system generates a large area of rain and thunderstorms over the weekend, and some of that rainy, stormy weather gets close to Alabama and Middle Tennessee by Sunday night.
Heavy storms ahead of a cold front move in and set up shop for a while around the region Sunday night through Monday, and since it’s a slow-mover, there will be rain and storms in the area at times throughout the day, all day long.
Severe weather is possible. While there is no official outlined risk from the Storm Prediction Center, it appears that the ingredients needed for strong wind gusts, hail larger than a quarter and even some rotating/tornado-producing storms will be in place Monday and Monday night in North Alabama and Southern Tennessee.

Monday’s wet/stormy weather may linger into Tuesday morning, but there is no substantial risk of severe weather Tuesday.
Another storm system arrives in the Wednesday/Thursday timeframe with what looks like a more intense round of thunderstorms.
Details on timing and intensity are sketchy this far out, but you need to be prepared for two rounds of rough storms in the days ahead: Monday and again Wednesday.
After those storms, it turns colder again late in the week. Remember, Spring begins next Saturday. With this push of chilly air, we could end up with some frost again by the morning of the Vernal Equinox (First Day of Spring).
