The Next 24 Hours – Limited Sun Saturday Afternoon
Showers continue overnight through early Saturday morning, but it will not be a Valley-wide soaking. The best chance of more than a quarter-inch of rain comes for southern Morgan, Cullman, Marshall, DeKalb, Blount, Etowah, and Cherokee Counties of Northeast Alabama. Some communities west of Huntsville and Decatur will see no rain at all through 6 AM. This is the specific chance of at least a quarter-inch of rain through 6 AM Saturday:
The sun makes an appearance at times Saturday afternoon thanks to the drying influence of a northerly breeze in the lower portion of the atmosphere. Temperatures will rise close to 60 degrees in most places around here, but some stay in the 50s all day in Southern Tennessee and in the higher terrain of northeastern Alabama where there will be little or no direct sunlight thanks to thick clouds.
More sun is in the forecast for Sunday, but rain returns Monday ahead of some colder weather (and possibly some snow) for next week! Check out our extended forecast for all of the details behind the numbers on the Seven Day at WHNT.com/Weather!
