HUNTSVILLE, Alabama — Little change in our weather pattern means showers and storms are possible once again on Friday. We continue to watch an area of low pressure that has been slowly moving east over the last several days. It looks like it'll finally move through the Tennessee Valley on Friday. Again, this doesn't change our forecast much with showers and thunderstorms sticking around.
Just like Thursday and much of the week, thunderstorms could be strong or marginally severe. The biggest threats would be very heavy rain and gusty winds. If storms are able to develop enough, some small hail could also be possible.
Temperatures on Friday will climb into the mid and upper 80s. Some could crack 90°.
All of this is ahead of a pretty big change in our weather pattern. This change involves a developing ridge across the western United States and a developing trough across the eastern United States. We'll begin to realize these changes Sunday - Wednesday of next week.
These changes bring a lot of good to the Tennessee Valley. It looks like dew points will back off and temperatures will fall below-average much of next week. By below-average we mean temperatures in the mid-80s during the day and mid-60s at night. With a lack of moisture we'd be looking at smaller opportunities for rain as well.
