Make sure to have the rain boots, umbrella and jacket ready to go for Thursday as we're waking up to scattered showers roaming across the Tennessee Valley this morning where most of the rain will be light to moderate in nature. It could lead to some areas of patchy fog developing as you're heading out to work.

HEAVY RAIN ON THURSDAY: Thursday we'll see the first of two systems move into the valley this week. This system will bring heavy rainfall across the valley with totals of 1-2 inches likely. Thursday afternoon and evening we'll see some storms developing within the scattered showers, some of which could be strong with gusty winds up to 40mph. No severe weather is expected from this system, but you'll likely hear a few rumbles of thunder.

An upper level low will sweep over the Ohio River Valley, where we'll get the tail end of the system. A few showers could move into Northwest Alabama as early as Tuesday and becoming more widespread throughout Tuesday afternoon. As temperatures heat up into the upper 60's, there's a chance of a few strong thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and night. The biggest concern will be winds gusting as high as 35 to 45 mph. This is still below severe thunderstorm criteria, but wind gusts this high …

A stalled out boundary lingering over Tennessee will continue to keep a chance of isolated showers in the forecast for Thursday and Friday, so having the umbrella by your side is not a bad plan! Also look for your spring wardrobe and turn off the heat as this boundary will continue to allow a pull of southerly winds to warm us up in the upper 60's and lower 70's under mostly cloudy skies!

From Wednesday to Friday we'll be stuck between higher pressure retrograding back East from the Atlantic and a stalled out storm system over the Ohio River Valley which will keep winds turning in from the South to warm us up into the 60's and 70's. With some moisture moving in through the lower levels, but drier air aloft thanks to higher pressure, I only expect a few isolated showers with mostly cloudy skies.
