Isolated Storms Tomorrow Evening… Sunday Forecast Update — 8:15pm

Sevenday_640

A good Sunday evening to you! Temperatures today remained in the mid seventies with mostly clear skies, except for mid-day when a small batch of clouds came through northern parts of Tuscaloosa/Northport, and other areas up to Birmingham. Tonight will remain mostly clear with warmer overnight temperatures in the lower 50s rather than the lower 40s we had this morning.

Monday will start off mostly sunny but cloud cover will increase throughout the day ahead of a few storms that will move southeastward out of Kentucky and Tennessee and swing through Northern Alabama Monday night. There is the potential for the storms to be on the strong side, especially in far northwestern AL. The main threat will be for strong winds and some hail due to some very cold air aloft. The storms will push east throughout the day on Tuesday, with some clouds and an isolated storm lingering in Central Alabama through the afternoon. A couple of clouds will hang on into Wednesday before clearing out for the latter part of the work week.

The slight risk issued for Monday by the SPC includes northern Alabama, with a general risk for thunderstorms further south in Central Alabama.

Another frontal system looks to swing through sometime this weekend, there is still a lot of uncertainty as to when it will arrive and how much precipitation we could see out of it. We’ll continue to monitor the upcoming weekend’s weather as things become a little clearer later this week.

The tropics remain quiet…
