HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Another beautiful afternoon across the Tennessee Valley with plenty of sunshine and temperatures that were able to climb into the low and mid-60s. We stay warm again tonight with temperatures only falling into the low and mid-40s.
With a stationary boundary sitting to our Northwest, we'll get another warm day on Wednesday. With winds out of the south and a mix of sun and clouds temperatures will easily climb into the upper 60s. The traditionally warm spots will make a solid run at 70-degrees but should fall just short by a degree or two.
Wednesday night and Thursday will bring some change to the Tennessee Valley in the form of colder air and widespread rain.
An area of low pressure will develop along the aforementioned stationery and then ride that boundary north bringing a cold front with it. That cold front moves through the Tennessee Valley Thursday and brings with it some of the most impressive rain we have seen to date in 2021.
Scattered showers will move through the Tennessee Valley for the Thursday morning commute, but more widespread rain will move in during the afternoon and evening. That's when we could also see a few non-severe embedded thunderstorms.
Many will be looking at nearly an inch of rain with locally higher rain totals. Some localized flooding will certainly be possible in flood-prone areas.
Behind this cold front will be some much cooler air. There is still some disagreement among the models regarding how cold we get this weekend and early next week, but you should plan now for indoor Valentine's plans.
