HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — A marginal risk for severe weather has been placed over a good chunk of the Tennessee Valley for tomorrow afternoon. A cold front will be moving through tomorrow afternoon, bringing in the chance for heavy rainfall and a few thunderstorms. The main threat for tomorrow is going to be wind gusts between 25 and 35 mph, but gusts up to 50 mph are possible.
The cold front looks to enter the Tennessee Valley around 8-9 AM and that's when the western side of the Tennessee Valley will start to see the bulk of the rainfall move through. Not only will we get rain and a few thunderstorms from the cold front, we'll also get cooler temperatures on Tuesday.
Temperatures will drop around 10 degrees between Monday and Tuesday because of the cold front. Our average temperature for this time of year is typically 81 degrees, and we'll be below average all week after Monday. Another burst of cold air will be coming into the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday too...
On Wednesday we'll be getting a BIG dip in the jet stream that will usher in northerly winds, dropping our low temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning. It will definitely be feeling like fall this week.
Monday will be our best opportunity at seeing rainfall because of the cold front and a few showers could still be lingering around for Tuesday but once we get to Wednesday, we'll be staying dry all the way through Sunday and seeing plenty of sunshine for the remainder of the week after the early week rain.
