Saturday Eve Forecast Discussion – 8:45 PM

A good Saturday to you! Skies have stayed cloudy for the most part today, as an upper level low rotates just to the north ofAlabama. A few tiny showers have even been seen across the northern half ofAlabama. The big storms last night moves out fast last night, so much of the day was spared with heavy rain and storms. Temperatures will remain cool over the next couple of days, in-fact, I’ve dropped highs back a few degrees for Sunday and Monday.

A vigorous upper level low will move overAlabamaon Monday, so clouds will stick around through Monday. If we see any sun at all, the best chance of that will happen tomorrow. I don’t think we’ll have more than 1 hour of sun tomorrow, as clouds continue to wrap intoAlabamafrom the northwest. Once the upper level low moves overAlabamaon Monday, showers will break out. While I don’t see anything heavy, a few tiny showers will develop and move through much of the area. Temperatures will likely stay in the 60s all day on Monday.

The trough over the east and upper level low is forecasted to move out of our area, as ridging builds just to the west. Sunshine will return in full force on Tuesday and Wednesday. Temperatures will begin a slow recovery, but it will take a few extra days for overnight lows to rebound. In-fact, it’s going to be cold Tuesday and Wednesday morning, with temperatures starting off in the middle 40s.

As a ridge moves into the area on Thursday and Friday, both highs and lows will warm quickly. Highs will reach the middle 80s on Thursday and Friday, with lows in the upper 50s on Friday morning. A few showers will move back into the area on Friday and Saturday. This will be the hit or miss afternoon showers. Rain chances are at or below 30% for now.
