(Tonight through Sunday)
Issued at 202 AM CDT Thu May 30 2024

Upper level ridging and aforementioned sfc high pressure will
continue to keep dry weather in place through the end of the work
week. Low to medium rain chances (20-40%) return overnight Friday
into Saturday as an upper level shortwave moves into the
Tennessee Valley from the west ahead of a more pronounced trough.
These shower/thunderstorm chances are forecast to increase in
chance and coverage throughout the afternoon into the overnight
hours (50-60%). During any storm, low shear and sufficient CAPE
will support gusty winds. Moderate to heavy rainfall is also
possible at times along with medium chances of lightning. The LREF
displays PWATs around 1.5", which is around the 75th percentile
per sounding climatology at BMX. 24 hour rainfall totals between
Saturday and Sunday morning will most likely amount to around
0.25-0.5", but could be as high as around 1-2". Additional
rainfall is forecast into next week.

Friday and through the weekend, high temperatures are forecast to
reach the upper 70s/mid 80s with overnight lows in the 60s.


(Sunday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 202 AM CDT Thu May 30 2024

bringing continues shower/thunderstorm chances to the Tennessee
Valley through Wednesday. During this time, high temperatures are
forecast to be in the 80s with low temperatures in the 60s. No
severe weather is currently forecast. However, we will be
monitoring these storms as we move into the end of this week!
