Highs Tuesday-Thursday will be in the low 90s.

Occasional showers with scattered storms will return on Sunday, mostly during the afternoon, with highs in the mid-80s under mostly cloudy skies. These will slowly diminish a bit in coverage on Saturday night with lows in the mid-60s.

REST OF THE WEEKEND AND NEXT WEEK: An upper-level trough will settle over the state by Sunday, with temperatures taking a slight tumble.

Today (Monday): Showers are possible at any time today but are likely to become most numerous and heaviest in the afternoon when thunderstorms are possible. The chance of rain will vary between 60% East of I-65 down to 30% across Western Alabama. The severe weather is over, but the rain continues as scattered showers and a few rumbles are expected through the weekend.

An additional 2 to 3 inches of rain is possible Tuesday and Wednesday. Rain totals for many could range from 5 to 10 inches since last weekend
