What a beautiful day!  Temperatures reached the lower 80s in most areas this afternoon.  You won’t need a jacket this evening.  Temperatures will remain in the lower 70s thanks to a southwest wind at 10-15mph.  A cold front will be moving across North Alabama early Friday morning.  Ahead of this front we will see a quick round of showers and thunderstorms.  Some of the storms could become severe west of I-65 and weaken as they track east.  The primary threat is damaging straight line winds up to 60mph. We will provide streaming coverage late tonight and early Friday morning as the storms move in.

Right now it looks like the storms will move into the Shoals after 10pm and continue to track east towards the Huntsville Metro area.  They will arrive in the Metro area around Midnight. Around 2am expect the showers and storms to move into DeKalb, Jackson and Marshall counties.  They could still produce heavy rain and strong gusty winds at that time but the threat for severe weather should be over before they make it that far east.

Nice weather will move in Friday afternoon and continue throughout the weekend.  Highs near 80 Friday and highs in the middle 80s this weekend.

We continue to track a powerful storm system that will slowly move across the Plains this weekend and into the Tennessee Valley early next week.  We could see a few rounds of severe weather before this system weakens.  Prolonged heavy rain and training thunderstorms could also lead to flooding.  Stay tuned for updates on the timing and strength of the system early next week. 

Have a safe night.
