.DISCUSSION...

A shower or thunderstorm or two is possible this evening before
weakening to just a shower or two overnight. Very little rainfall
will occur and this will not be widespread. Fog is possible
overnight in the areas where it isn`t raining. Winds will remain
southerly and less than 5kt overnight.

Another cold front approaches the area on Monday with showers and
thunderstorms overspreading from west to east in the late
afternoon. A few storms could be strong to severe, especially in
areas west of Huntsville. Winds will increase to around 10-15kt
with gusts around 15-20kt possible on Monday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will linger again on Tuesday.
Tuesday night should be dry with isolated storms returning on
Wednesday with winds shifting around to the northwest. The next
widespread rainfall will be on Thursday with another approaching
cold front. Fog could once again be possible each night in between
rain showers due to the continued moisture and high RH values.
Minimum RH values will be above 50 percent each day.

Red Flag Warning conditions are not expected.
