The weekend is ending on a nice note, with partly sunny skies and warm temperatures. Most of us are in the middle 60s as of the 1 PM observations. Clouds will gradually increase through the afternoon hours, with skies becoming cloudy tonight. Showers will begin to move in late tonight, with the best chance of rain after midnight and before noon tomorrow. It looks like everyone will receive a dose of rain over the next 24 hours. Rainfall totals will remain below 1 inch during this event. A weak cold front will bring a dry airmass into central Alabama Monday afternoon, which will clear our skies out. The only temperature difference you will notice will occur Monday night, when we reach upper 30s for lows.
Tuesday will be an in-between day, where we see a warm-up and nice weather. Highs will be in the lower 60s Tuesday afternoon. Clouds will increase late in the day on Tuesday, and we can expect rain to move in late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning. Rain will become heavy at times during the day on Wednesday. We could pick up over 2 inches locally. I wouldn’t be surprised to see rainfall totals upwards of 4 inches south of Highway 80. An area of low pressure will develop in the western Gulf and move into south Alabama on Wednesday. The big question then concerns the exact track of the low. Some data brings it into central Alabama, which would allow for parts of our area to get in the warm sector. If this is the case, we will have to keep an eye on a few severe storms over our southern counties. If the track of the low stays along the coast, we’ll just see a steady rain. As of now, I’m forecasting a high in the upper 50s. Keep in mind, areas along and south of Highway 80 will likely reach into the middle 60s, while areas north of Fayette will struggle to reach 50 degrees.
Some of the coldest air this season moves into Central Alabama on Thursday, with highs staying in the upper 40s. Lows at night will dip down into the upper 20s Friday morning. We will gradually warm up into the middle 50s on Saturday and lower 60s on Sunday, with sunny skies returning. Be sure to tune in tonight at 10 PM on WVUA-TV for the latest on your weather.
