FIRST ALERT WEATHER: Scattered showers possible for Thursday

(WAFF) - We're starting this morning under mostly cloudy skies, and the clouds should continue through the day. There could be a few isolated showers for the morning drive, but any rain won't be too widespread early.  Best odds to begin the day will be west of I-65.

Scattered storms become more numerous later this morning into the afternoon. The day won't be a washout, but several rounds of rain are possible.  Temperatures should be cooler today with highs staying in the 80s for the first time in more than three weeks!

It could also be a little breezy with wind gusts of 15-20 mph out of the southwest. Rain should be most widespread during the mid/late afternoon with storms tapering off this evening.  Skies will be mostly cloudy tonight with only isolated showers. Lows should drop into the lower 70s.

We'll continue with a good chance for rain Friday and Saturday, but I don't think showers will be as widespread as today on either day. We'll see a fair amount of cloud cover over this time period along with highs in the upper 80s.

We should be back to around 90° by Sunday with scattered storms still possible during the afternoon. While I don't expect a washout this weekend, keep in mind, some areas could have rain/lightning delays that last several hours.

The heat returns as we go through next week. Highs should be into the mid-90s by Wednesday. The chance for rain does diminish through the week as well.
