FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Scattered storms for Tuesday

FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Scattered storms for Tuesday

(WAFF) - Scattered storms will be ongoing through the morning hours mainly across areas west of I-65. Some storms could be strong with gusty winds, frequent lightning, and locally heavy rain. Skies are mostly cloudy and temperatures are warm.

We're starting this Tuesday in the mid 60s with a south wind around 10 mph. That wind will continue through the day with gusts up to 20 mph. Any storms should wind down by the late morning and there will likely be some sun shining through the clouds.

Temperatures should warm into the mid 80s this afternoon. Another round of more isolated, pop-up storms may develop this afternoon. This activity should diminish around sunset with partly cloudy skies overnight.

Lows will stay in the mid 60s once again.  We'll see a mix of sun and clouds through the day and isolated storms should develop by the afternoon. Highs will be into the mid 80s. A cold front will approach the Valley on Thursday and that looks like it will be our best chance at seeing more widespread rain across the area.

The severe threat is low, but some storms could be strong. Behind the front, humidity will drop for Friday and the weekend. A few showers may linger into early Friday, but skies should be clearing for the afternoon. Lows will dip into the 50s overnight.

Look for highs in the mid/upper 70s over the weekend. Saturday should be relatively sunny, but clouds will increase for Sunday afternoon. Highs will be close to 80° to begin the next work week. We should be dry early on, but rain chances will go up through the week.
