FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Chance of showers increasing by the afternoon

(WAFF) -

Tuesday will start off with low clouds and temperatures ranging from the upper 30s into the lower 40s. There may be some bright spots in the clouds and a few peeks of sunshine, but don't count on seeing a whole lot of the sun throughout the day. Save for some drizzle, we should stay dry through the morning.

As a disturbance passes to our north, our chance for rain will increase by the afternoon. Scattered showers and even a thunderstorm are possible through the evening, with the highest chance of rain being from 2-7 p.m. Highs should push into the mid-50s and it will be breezy at times. Look for mostly cloudy skies to continue into the evening with lows falling into the upper 30s with some patchy fog.

Skies will be cloudy to begin Wednesday. The cloudy skies continue past the lunch hour, but should start decreasing during the afternoon. Highs will be a little cooler than Tuesdays, topping out closer to 50. Skies should be mainly clear by the night and Thursday morning should be the coolest of the upcoming week as lows drop into the low-to-mid 30s. 

Thursday's highs should push into the mid-60s that afternoon with mostly sunny skies. We’ll also be milder overnight with lows in the mid-40s. Friday is even warmer with highs closer to 70.
