First Alert Forecast: Temperatures, rain chances increase through 7-day forecast
Quiet, Mild Weekend (Source: WLBT)

High pressure remains in control over the region and will keep us dry and sunny through the end of the work week! Highs will top out near 60° this afternoon and we'll be cool for any Friday evening plans. Another night in the upper 30s is expected before we warm into the mid 60s by Saturday afternoon.

Clouds and temperatures will gradually increase through the weekend, eventually leading to a few showers late Sunday night. Scattered showers, and a few rumbles of thunder, will be possible Monday and Tuesday. We’re still tracking the potential for strong-severe storms late Tuesday through Wednesday, but we’ll also have to watch where heavy bands of rain set up over the region. Stay tuned for forecast updates as we get closer!

First Alert Forecast: quiet, mild weekend ahead
