Scattered strong to severe storms possible this afternoon, evening

Weather

Focusing on the Tennessee Valley area (North Alabama/Southern Middle Tennessee), the ingredients are not in place for a widespread threat of severe weather; however, we will be watching how quickly the atmosphere destabilizes in this afternoon and the position of a cold front for a round of storms capable of producing large hail and strong wind gusts.

Through the afternoon hours, we will experience several hours of sunshine which will warm the surface temperatures, creating a destabilizing situation in the atmosphere. A south wind makes it more humid ahead of a cold front, and the front should serve to trigger one more round of scattered storms. Any storms that develop (especially southeast of Huntsville-Decatur-Athens area) could have large hail and gusts over 50 MPH.

Total rainfall on Saturday? Most of us will be around a half to one inch; some locally-higher amounts up to two inches are possible southeast of Huntsville in Cullman, Blount, Marshall, DeKalb Etowah and Cherokee Counties.
