Rain Chances Remain

QPF1

We’ve had a few showers early this morning around downtown up to Fayetteville. More showers form near Birmingham moving northeast. If you are in Marshall and DeKalb Counties, the chances of rain increase through the morning hours. Overall rain chances are below where they have been over the last several days.

How a difference a year makes! Last year, we were backing in the Tennessee Valley. July 1, 2012, was one of the hottest days on record in Huntsville. This year is the complete opposite. Rainy and cool conditions are the rule this July. Temperatures are 20° cooler compared to last year and much wetter.
