HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — It was another truly beautiful afternoon across North Alabama and Southern Middle Tennessee. The cloud cover took a bit longer to build into the Tennessee Valley than previously thought, so temperatures were able to climb into the upper 60s and low 70s under ample sunshine and a wind out of the south. Today brought some of the warmest air we've seen since mid-January.

We'll stay warm Tuesday night with an isolated shower being possible. Temperatures will be sitting comfortably in the low and mid-50s by the Wednesday morning commute. 

Still, maybe make sure everyone has a raincoat because an isolated shower or two will be possible in the morning. Scattered showers will be possible in the afternoon.

Temperatures on Wednesday will still have no problem climbing into the upper 60s. Just like Tuesday, some could see the low 70s.

The better chance for widespread rain and even a few storms will come to the area Wednesday night and Thursday morning. A couple of storms could be strong with the greatest concern being the chance for some gusty winds. Rain totals don't appear all that impressive. 

There is another small opportunity for rain Friday night, but the weekend looks dry. Temperatures will be lower Friday through the weekend.

NOAA has released its official 2022-2023 Winter Outlook. It takes note that La Nina is still in place which could mean a drier and warmer winter for us in the Tennessee Valley. For those of you that love snow, we were talking this exact same forecast for 2021-2022, and we ended up seeing quite a bit of snow across the area.
