First Alert Forecast: rain coverage increases through mid-week
Storm Chances Increase Tuesday (Source: WLBT)

Scattered downpours & storms will remain likely today through Thursday thanks to our current setup! An upper level low & a surface cold front to our west and Gulf moisture surging in from the south will keep us in an unsettled pattern and could allow for 1-2″ of rainfall over the next few days... If you have outdoor plans, definitely keep the First Alert Weather App handy! High temperatures the next few days will only reach the mid 80s for this reason...

Eventually we’ll see a cold front swing through into the weekend, which will usher in dryer and less humid air Saturday and Sunday. Although a stray shower or t’storm will be possible both days, most of us will stay dry. A ridge will build over the region into next week, which will allow for a quick heat up and could take temperatures back into the low 90s by next week!
