As for rain chances, it will likely be another afternoon of isolated to widely scattered storms.

There's a chance for storms on Wednesday.

Some degree of heat and humidity linger through Wednesday, with a lower storm potential Tuesday which increases again Wednesday. The threat for a stray to a couple storms continues both Sunday and pushing into Monday. We'll be sitting around 5-10 degrees above average for this time of year through the middle part of the next work week!

Upper level ridging (aka high pressure) will strengthen at the start of next week across the southern USA and that will keep us quite warm across north Alabama and southern Tennessee. There is still a slight chance for significant organization to occur through today while the system moves NE away from the United States.

BRIEF RELIEF LATE NEXT WEEK: The good news regarding the unsafe heat is that we will get some dramatic relief late next week. Storms are possible most of these days but may be most numerous Thursday, when a cold front arrives. It is humid with highs are in the upper 80s. It is a hot and humid start to the week, and then we see some relief from the muggy air by the end of the week.
