Today's Forecast

Today's Forecast Image

*Wind Advisory and strong storms today
*Wind chills in the 30s Sunday
*Hard freeze potential Monday morning

We're off to a warmer start this morning but you'll still want a jacket if you're heading out early. Isolated showers may begin to pop up during the mid-morning hours, but the main event holds off until later today. Our weather pattern takes a big turn this afternoon and evening as a strong cold front sweeps through the Tennessee Valley. A line of heavy rain is likely as well as some rumbles of thunder mixed in. Rain totals should be near ¼-½" and winds will pick up, gusting up to 45 mph as the front approaches. A Wind Advisory is in effect from 6 AM - 9 PM so be sure to secure patio furniture and bring any lightweight items indoors. Winds will be sustained at 20-30 MPH today, even before the line of heavy rain and storms arrives. The latest timeline has the heaviest rain and strongest winds pushing into the Shoals around 5 PM and moving through Huntsville around dinner time. The heaviest rain should make it to Sand Mountain by around 7-9 PM tonight.

Behind this front much cooler air will settle in with highs in the 50s most of Thanksgiving week and a hard freeze possible Monday morning as temperatures fall into the upper 20s! Sunday's high temperatures will struggle to make it up to 50 degrees.

Good travel weather is expected for most of next week with highs in the 50s and lower in the upper 30s later on.
