September 17, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Monday night to you! As of 9:15pm, the dry slot has really taken over much of central Alabama. Notice the lack of rain along and south of I-20/59 at this hour, with the moderate rain concentrated over northwest Alabama. As the surface low tracks into our area from the southwest, much of central and southwest Alabama will continue to deal with a break in the rain. A few showers and storms may develop ahead of the low later tonight, but instability is really lacking across our area, so I don’t expect a long duration of heavy rain out of this. Again, the heavier rain will continue to fall in areas northwest of I-20/59, but only scattered showers and storms will be possible across the rest of south and central Alabama through daybreak tomorrow morning. Earlier, we were talking about a chance of an isolated tornado or two. While a small spin-up is possible across west and central Alabama through the pre-dawn hour tomorrow, the chance is very low. We’ll keep an eye on radar incase anything gets organized.
As the low pulls northeast of central Alabama, showers will continue to be possible across all of west and central Alabama through the midday hours on Tuesday. An upper level disturbance is still lagging to the west of Alabama. As lift ahead of the upper air feature moves in Tuesday morning, we can expect the showery weather to continue. It will not be a steady rain, but showers will come and go. Keep the rain gear handy through the mid afternoon on Tuesday.
Dry air will then take over for the rest of the week and into the weekend!
