FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Widespread rain showers for Thursday

(WAFF) -

Skies will be cloudy this morning with scattered rain showers. Although it won’t be raining the entire day, several rounds of steadier rain can be expected from time to time so keep an umbrella handy if you’ll be out and about. 

Temperatures are mild this morning with readings in the mid 50s.  Winds should be out of the east today at 5-15 mph. Afternoon highs will push into the mid and upper 60s with occasional rain and possibly a t-storm. 

No severe weather is expected.  Rainfall totals should generally stay in the 0.25 – 0.5” range over the next 48 hours. The heavier rain should stay south and west of the TN Valley today. That being said, rain today will be more widespread locally compared to Friday. 

Expect isolated showers with cloudy skies Friday afternoon. The wind should be out of the east around 10 mph keeping highs in the mid 60s. The clouds continue overnight, but should diminish over the course of Saturday.

With more sunshine Saturday, we should be in store for a warmer afternoon. Highs will make it back into the low/mid 70s. Nighttime lows will hold near 50° through the weekend. Skies will be mostly sunny Sunday and the warm-up continues with highs into the upper 70s. 

We should be closer to 80° for Monday afternoon with the dry weather continuing. A slight chance for rain returns Tuesday, but any widespread rain looks like it will hold off until later in the week. Highs should be in the mid-to-upper 70s next week with lows in the mid 50s.
