A cold pool/mesohigh right over the middle of Alabama today has kept afternoon convection to a minimum today and also helped suppress temperatures in many areas as well. As of this evening, radar sweeps show a few showers and storms popping up around the periphery of the high.
The big story over the remainder of the 7-day forecast period is the breakdown of the upper level ridge and development of a trough over the eastern states next week. Models have been amazingly consistent in the development of this trough and are increasingly similar in the details with the trough and the associated cold frontal passage. Sensible weather-wise, the aforementioned developments will mean lower temperatures and higher rain chances. In fact, depending on how long it takes the front to move through, we could actually be facing a several day period of occasionally wet/stormy weather.
