First Alert Forecast: quiet, few storms possible Tuesday
Rain, Storm Risk Continues (Source: WLBT)

Today will be the coolest day in the 7-day forecast as highs are only expected to top out in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Although we could see a stray shower this evening south, most of us will stay dry until the overnight period.

A cut-off low to our NE and a stalled front to our south will be the main drivers of our forecast this week and our southern counties will see the brunt of the shower and thunderstorm activity mid-week. Some of our central and northern counties could remain completely dry!

Temperatures and rain chances climb for all of us, however, into the weekend as that frontal boundary will lift to the north as a warm front and usher in better chances for scattered showers and storms. Highs near 90 degrees are expected through the weekend and into the start of next week with the best chance of storms on Memorial Day and next Tuesday.

First Alert Forecast: trending warmer, muggier late week
