HUNTSVILLE, Ala — A very hot and humid afternoon across the Tennessee Valley today. Temperatures topped out in the upper 80s/lower 90s this afternoon and any left over rain from what is now Tropical Depression Claudette was quick to leave the area this morning. For the overnight tonight, expect a mostly clear sky and temperatures will remain relatively warm for this time of the year, in the low 70s.

Like mentioned above, a marginal risk (level 1/5) for strong to severe storms has been issued for the entire Tennessee Valley tomorrow.
A strong cold front will move through the Valley late tomorrow night but what I like to call "popcorn storms" will develop out ahead of the frontal boundary. Tomorrow's primary threats for severe storms will be damaging wind gusts, heavy rainfall which could lead to some areas of localized flooding, and small hail. Tomorrow won't be a tornado threat.
Rain will start to taper off early Tuesday morning and by Tuesday around lunch, things will turn much drier and then sun should peek out at times. You'll also notice some MUCH cooler air for Tuesday, leaving high temperatures only in the upper 70s.
Wednesday and Thursday we'll see two days full of sunshine, and then return to our typical, summertime pattern, where scattered showers and thunderstorms will be a possibility in the afternoons.
