Showers Increase This Eve/Tonight/Early Tuesday… Forecast Update – 2 pm Monday

Good Monday afternoon! As of 2:06 pm, light showers and sprinkles were developing across parts of west Alabama. These small, light showers are moving east northeast. Notice the heavier batch of rain in east and central Mississippi. That batch is also moving east northeast and will impact west Alabama sometime after 4 pm. This afternoon and evening will feature the risk of scattered, mainly light showers through sunset. The best chance of light rain before sunset will occur in west Alabama, with the moderate showers occurring close to the Alabama/Mississippi State line at times through sunset. If you have an outdoor event planned this afternoon or evening, expect the risk of scattered showers at times. The rain will not be continuous this evening, rather it will be hit or miss. Have the umbrella nearby incase a shower moves over your area.

As upper level energy moves in from the west tonight, showers will continue to increase. A few rumbles of thunder are possible tonight and early on Tuesday, but there is no surface based instability present, so severe weather will not occur. Keep the rain gear handy through tonight and into tomorrow afternoon. Showers will gradually spread out of the area and to the east after lunch on Tuesday. I don’t expect a heavy rain event across west or central Alabama, but storm totals may approach 1/2 an inch in spots. We could use the rain, so we’ll take what we can get.

Temperatures will cool some behind the front, but nothing like what we just had over the weekend. Temperatures will return into the 30s Tuesday night through Thursday night, with highs in the lower 60s on Tuesday and Wednesday. A nice warm-up is expected in time for your weekend plans.
