The area of rain will move east of Alabama by Monday afternoon and the clearing will begin. Monday will start humid, but direr air will filter into Alabama throughout the day. Tuesday through Friday looks very nice for being outdoors as temperatures will range from the 60s to 70s with mostly sunny skies. Jackets will be needed each morning as temperatures dip into the 40s.

By next weekend another cold front will approach from the west, and while rain will not be as widespread with this one, temperatures will take another big drop as we head into Sunday.

PM Storms Sunday… More Fall Weather for the Week Ahead – Saturday 6 PM Forecast Update… @wvua23 #alwx

Sevenday_640 (5)

After another warm weekend, things will once again change in a big way as we approach the work week. A cold front will move across Alabama Sunday night and bring with it quite a bit of rain. Widespread rain and  a few thunderstorms will increase in coverage throughout Sunday night and rainfall totals could top two inches in the northern half of the state. No severe weather weather is expected, but this will be a much needed soaking rain.

Portions of Alabama will begin clearing by Monday afternoon and then the real fall weather moves in. Temperatures statewide will be in the 60s to lower 70s for most of the week with sunny skies. Overnight lows will get pretty chilly later in the week as most locations see the 40s to start the day, and some locations in north Alabama will see some 30s as well.

Mild Weekend.. Heavy Rain Sunday Night – Monday… Friday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Friday afternoon! After a cool start to the day, a modifying trend continued into the afternoon hours, with most spots reaching 80 degrees. High cirrus clouds are gradually increasing across the area, and I expect that trend to continue through Saturday. As moisture levels gradually increase, expect lows tonight not as cool as recent nights.

Saturday will feature a mild and dry day, with highs approaching the lower 80s. Clouds gradually increase on Saturday, but I still expect periods of sunshine. Alabama takes on Tennessee in Bryant-Denny on Saturday. Look for a kickoff temperature around 81, under a partly sunny sky.

Rain chances will really increase on Sunday, as uplift and moisture increase in the area. The morning will be mostly dry, with rain increasing by late afternoon and into Sunday night. Rain could be heavy at times Sunday night into Monday, with rain amounts of 2-3″ state-wide. Rain chances will come to an end by Monday night, as drier air moves in from the west.

Much cooler air will arrive by Tuesday afternoon and continue through the middle and end of next week.

Mild Days… Big Rains by Sunday PM… Thursday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather started off cool again this morning, but conditions became very pleasant by mid afternoon. Most spots are well into the upper 70; in-fact, some towns are pushing the 80 degree mark. Look for cool conditions tonight, with a low around 50. Areas northeast of Birmingham will reach the upper 40s overnight.

Friday will include a mild day, with a high of 80 degrees. High clouds gradually increase on Friday and Saturday, as a deep trough digs to the west of Alabama. Rain is highly unlikely on Saturday, but I can’t rule out a sprinkle over west Alabama during the afternoon.

Rain chances will really increase on Sunday, as uplift and moisture increase in the area. The morning will be mostly dry, with rain increasing by late afternoon and into Sunday night. Rain could be heavy at times Sunday night into Monday, with rain amounts of 2-3″ state-wide. Rain chances will come to an end by Monday night, as drier air moves in from the west.

Much cooler air will arrive by Tuesday afternoon and continue through the middle and end of next week.

Dry Now… Soaking Rain Ahead… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:25pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out very nice again this afternoon after a chilly start to the day. Expect temperatures to rapidly drop again after sunset this evening, with lows in the upper 40s on average.

Thursday will remain sunny and nice, with a warmer afternoon. Highs will reach the upper 70s in most areas on Thursday. Moisture levels slowly rise on Friday and Saturday. We’ll notice a few passing clouds both days, with gradually increasing clouds on Saturday. Highs will reach the lower 80s on Friday and Saturday.

Sunday, a deep upper air trough will begin to dig across the central US, sending a cold front our way. We can expect a good chance of rain and storms to move into the area by Sunday evening and continue through Sunday night. Models hint at a weak low forming on the front, helping to enhance the rain chance for Monday as well. If correct, our area could get widespread 1-2″ of rain, with some higher amounts across northern Alabama.

Below is a first look at forecasted rain totals. This may chance a little, but all model data currently has this look…

Nice Days Ahead.. Cool Nights… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:25pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! We had a chilly start to the day, with beautiful fall conditions by mid afternoon. Temperatures warmed into the lower 70s in most spots this afternoon, with a few middle 70s over west Alabama. With dry air, clear skies and decreasing wind, expect a chilly night tonight. Lows will drop into the upper 40s along I-20, with middle 40s north of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham.

Skies remain sunny through Friday, with no risk of rain in our local area. Highs will reach the upper 70s on Wednesday and Thursday, then modify into the low 80s on Friday and Saturday.

Clouds will increase on Saturday, and a few passing showers are possible late in the day. Rain chances will increase on Sunday and could continue into Monday as a cold front arrives. Temperatures will drop to below average again by Tuesday of next week, as a sharp trough digs across the eastern US.

Chilly Nights, Fall-Like Days Ahead… Monday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! Today has turned out to be a beautiful fall day, after the passage of a cold front last night. Conditions have cleared out through the day, as drier and cooler air take over from the north. Expect a light north breeze to continue tonight, with a low in the upper 40s.

Tuesday will feature a sunny sky and fall-like conditions remain with us. Expect a high in the lower to middle 70s Tuesday afternoon. With a dry airmass, temperatures will cool rapidly after sunset, with many areas dipping into the middle or upper 40s by sunrise Wednesday morning.

We’ll gradually notice a warming trend by the upcoming weekend, as the upper air trough moves out and slightly warmer Gulf air moves north. Highs will reach the lower 80s over the weekend, with a partly cloudy sky. A few showers are possible on Sunday, but it appears our next best rain chance will arrive on Monday, with another cold front.

The tropics are rather quiet, with some weak development possible to the east of the Bahamas over the next few days. A US impacting storm is not expected over the next week…
