FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Updated timeline for Tuesday's First Alert Weather Day

Skies will be mostly cloudy Monday with scattered rain showers. You may hear a few rumbles of thunder as well, but no severe weather is expected. Our mild weekend weather continues with morning temperatures in the upper 50s with highs pushing into the upper 60s by the afternoon hour, about 15° warmer than average. Skies will remain mostly cloudy Monday night with isolated showers possible.

Tuesday is a First Alert Weather Day for the threat of strong-to-severe storms late in the day. The daytime hours will be warm and windy with gusts up to 20-30 mph and highs near 70.

During the day, strong-to-severe storms should fire up to our west across north Mississippi. That line of storms should approach northwest Alabama around 5 to 7 p.m. The primary threat is for damaging wind gusts of up to 65 mph. A brief, spin-up tornado is also possible, especially west of I-65. The storm line should weaken as it moves east, but severe weather is still possible for the Huntsville Metro area as well as northeastern Alabama.

As the line tracks east overnight, it will gradually weaken, and the severe threat will become more isolated. The storms exit by mid Wednesday morning. Cooler and calmer weather will filter in behind the storms. Mid and late week highs will be back in the 40s with overnight lows in the 20s.
