Isolated Showers Today, Showers/Storms Tonight
A south wind developed overnight and is ushering a milder and more humid airmass into the Tennessee Valley. We’re starting off milder but still chilly, especially in our eastern counties which have dropped into the mid-20′s. This contrasts with the mid-30′s further west.
Where you are elevation-wise is also playing a big role in your temperatures. A big contrast set up this morning between the lower areas around Huntsville and the higher ridges.
Sunday will be fairly mild with a breezy south wind under increasingly cloudy skies. Showers are beginning to develop to our west and spotty rain will move across the area today, but other than isolated light rain, our weather should cooperate for any last minute shopping.
Higher rain chances arrive after sunset tonight and will last through primarily the first half of Christmas Eve day. Some thunderstorms will be possible, but severe weather is not expected. Most of the heavy rain will be done by tomorrow afternoon, but at least a small chance will linger into the evening.
More widespread showers and thunderstorms are set to affect the area on Christmas Day with some stronger thunderstorms possible. Check out WHNT’s forecast page for the latest thoughts on rain and the possibility of snow around the region.
