Storms to increase this week

Good Monday, everyone.  Our new week is off and running with more of the same in the temperature department, but changes are on the way as a cold front moves in. This front will usher in an increase in rainfall and a decrease in your back porch thermometer.

As always, we start with what’s going on in the precious present. Temps out there today will be in the upper 80s to low 90s with a mix of sun and clouds. A few scattered showers and storms may go up to help us out a bit. If they do, you can find them on our friendly radars…

Tuesday finds a better shot at a few strong or severe storms, especially across the northern half of the state. Here’s the Severe Weather Outlook from the Storm Prediction Center:

Our front slides into the region on Wednesday and that will bring more in the way of showers and storms to much of the region. The severe threat may also still be around:

Heavy rainfall is a good bet for some and that could cause local high water issues to develop. Does this front slow down on top of the Tennessee Valley and let low pressure develop along it? Many models think so and keep showers and storms going from Thursday into Friday:



That could impact the kickoff of the high school football season.

The days leading up to Labor Day weekend are taking on more of a cooler look with a deepening trough possibly showing up. Look at this trough digging in on the European Model:

That also shows up well on the Canadian:

Have a wonderful Monday and take care.
