A weak surface boundary over southern Tennessee early this morning will push southward through the day.
The front will provide slightly cooler and drier conditions for the Tennessee Valley region of the of north Alabama for today.
The boundary will sink to parts of central Alabama by Noon and the interaction of the front and daytime heating will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms by this afternoon.
The best chance of thunderstorms will be across the southern half of the state where the highest moisture and instability will be located.
Some of the thunderstorms may become strong to severe…especially over southern sections of the state.
The storms will be capable of producing strong wind gusts, frequent cloud to ground lightning and torrential rain.
The frontal boundary will push further south tonight and reduce rain chances for most of the state.
Heat will build back into Alabama over the weekend with mostly rain free conditions over the region. Temperatures will have no problem reaching mid to upper 90’s for Saturday and Sunday.
Heat index levels may become an issue, and I expect their will be some heat advisories issued for parts of the state.
