Scattered Showers This Evening
It still looks like some high school football games this evening could get wet, but since the showers and isolated storms are very spotty, many games will be completely dry. The composite radar image around the Tennessee Valley this afternoon at 2:30 showed hit-or-miss showers slowly moving east-southeast at about 15-20 MPH.
The best chance of rain between 4 and 7 PM will come over Southern Tennessee and over The Shoals. Showers will begin to fade away after 7 PM, but some are still a possibility up until around 11 PM across the entire Tennessee Valley.
You can keep track of the radar if you’re out at a game this evening for free with WHNT.com’s mobile offerings including LiveAlert 19 and the WHNT Weather App.
It’s gotten very warm ahead of those showers today! Mid-afternoon temperatures are hovering in the mid-70s to mid-80s:
Muscle Shoals: 84º
Tullahoma, TN: 78º
Fort Payne: 82º
Corinth, MS: 84º
Showers are possible through the weekend, but there is growing confidence of a good rain for at least part of the Tennessee Valley by Monday thanks to a developing Gulf Coast storm system. Here’s the latest guidance from the Hydrometeorological Prediction Center for precipitation over the next five days:
It still looks like the best chance of a significant rain (over 0.25″) will be southeast of a line from around Hamilton to Huntsville to McMinnville, Tennessee Sunday night through Monday evening.
