Many of us got a break from the storms Sunday afternoon, but storm chances will rise again as we head into the first full week of summer.
Rain and storms moved through northwest Alabama early this morning dropping about 1/4″ to 1/2″ of rain in the Shoals. Saint Florian had just over 1/2″. Leighton checked in with around a quarter of an inch. Madison only had a few hundredths. Temperatures are in the lower to middle 80s with only isolated just after 11am.
By the afternoon, daytime heating will kick-in and aid storms in redeveloping over North Alabama. We have enough heat and moisture already in place that any storms that develop Monday will have the potential to become severe.
The Storm Prediction Center has outlined the Tennessee Valley with a slight risk of severe storms through Monday afternoon and evening. Severe storms could produce heavy rain, frequent lightning, damaging winds, and large hail.
Unfortunately we can’t give a clean timeline for Monday’s storms, as they’ll be developing throughout the entire day. The coverage of storms over North Alabama and Tennessee will be uneven, with on-and-off storms well into the afternoon:
You can use the Live Alert 19 app to receive alerts for nearby storms and to track the storms as they move through.
Typical Summer Weather Takes Over: By midweek we’ll get a slight shift in our weather pattern that delivers us a dose of very seasonable weather for the first week of summer.
Storm chances don’t disappear completely, but they will drop down to the 20%-30% range from Wednesday through the upcoming weekend. That translates to isolated pop-up storms that mainly develop through daytime heating each afternoon.
