The upper level trough that allowed bitterly cold air to plunge southward is still over us, if just barely. The core of the cold air has pushed off to the east, but the edge of the trough will remain over the Valley Saturday evening. That will track a weak cold front southward into the Valley Saturday evening.
That brings a few showers and isolated storms to Southern Tennessee and Northern Alabama. Most storms will bring a quick round of rain and maybe a few rumbles of thunder, but a stronger storm is possible. Any storms that can strengthen could produce wind gusts up to 50+ mph and even some small hail.
Not all of us will see rain though. The best chance for showers or storms will be in Northeastern Alabama between through 8pm. If you’re planning on heading out to any of the great events happening across Alabama, be sure to keep Live Alert 19 with you!
An extended period of dry weather settles in Sunday. We get several sunny, dry days early next week and temperatures will return to near 80 by Monday.
