HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — Scattered showers and thunderstorms moved through the Tennessee Valley this afternoon and it looks like that won't be all of the rain we'll see this week. There's a cold front that's going to move through late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning that's going to bring widespread rainfall and thunderstorm opportunities to the Valley tomorrow.
The good news is this cold front looks to move through relatively quick. By Wednesday afternoon it should be out of our area and we'll notice much drier air being ushered in. A high pressure system will follow behind the cold front and that will be responsible for our weather the rest of the weekend which if I have to say so myself, looks pretty good!
By Wednesday afternoon the rain will taper off and we'll be left with much drier conditions for the rest of the week. From now until then though, cumulatively some decent amounts of rain will fall. Huntsville could see a little over an inch and Decatur could see close to 2 inches. Notice portions to the east of I-65 will see less amounts.
Of course we couldn't go into a new week without some tropical mischief! Subtropical Depression Four has formed well out into the Atlantic ocean and will make no direct impact to land. Although, it is expected to become Tropical Storm Dolly by tomorrow and that will make it our fourth named storm of the 2020 Atlantic Hurricane Season.
Earlier I mentioned our temperatures will be heating up and that looks to happen the last week of June heading into the first week of July. Keep in mind our average temperature for this time of year is right around 90 degrees. It looks like we have a 50% chance to see above average temperatures, meaning it's going to be really hot for the end of June
