FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Possible rain showers and thunderstorms for Monday

(WAFF) - Clouds will be increasing this morning with overcast skies by the mid/late morning. Temperatures are milder compared to Sunday morning with many starting the day in the low-to-mid 50s. The wind will be picking up as the day wears on, and should be in the 10-20 mph range by this afternoon.

Rain showers and t-storms will develop today as a cold front moves in from the west. Isolated showers are possible by the late morning with storms more likely later this afternoon.

The rain could be heavy at times this evening and will continue overnight. Showers should taper off over the course of Tuesday morning, and some clearing can be expected for the afternoon.

Rain totals should be around 1-2" across the Valley. While some storms may produce gusty winds around 35-40 mph, widespread severe weather is not expected with this system.

Highs Tuesday will stay in the mid 60s with a north wind around 5-15 mph. Any clearing we see overnight will be replaced by a mix of clouds for Wednesday. Temperatures will get progressively warmer as we close out this week.

Highs should be back to around 70° by Thursday. Skies will be partly cloudy through the end of the work week with isolated rain showers possible from time to time. The higher chance for rain will stay closer to the Gulf coast to finish the week.

Any clouds should clear out Friday night, and we'll see plenty of sunshine over the weekend. Temperatures will continue heating up and highs should be into the mid 70s Saturday and will be approaching 80° by Sunday. We'll stay dry over the weekend, and the warmer weather should continue into next week.
