Another warm and breezy day across Central Alabama. Temperatures were in the low 70’s with a variety of different cloud types in the sky. Overnight tonight, there might be a light shower as moisture continue to funnel into the area from the south. Temperatures will remain warm, we will only drop into the upper 50’s.
To start the work week, a few light showers are still possible Monday morning, but those will come to an end as the day progresses. Winds will still be out of the south (at 5-10 mph), so temperatures will remain warm. We will see the low and mid 70’s Monday afternoon. Monday night into Tuesday morning will be the transition between two systems. The one that has brought the clouds in today will have lifted north, but the next system will be marching across the Mississippi Delta Tuesday morning and afternoon. During the day in Central Alabama, it will feel like spring. Warm and humid air will be in place with breezy conditions. High temperatures will be in the mid 70’s. A few showers or small thunderstorms are possible Tuesday afternoon ahead of the line associated with the cold front.
The Storm Prediction Center does have all of Central Alabama under a slight risk for severe weather Tuesday evening and overnight. This is in connection with the line of storms that will trek east across Mississippi during the day. We could begin to see the leading edge of the line early Tuesday evening; however, I think we are looking at an 8 p.m. or later timetable. Ahead of this line could be some strong individual thunderstorms coming up from the Gulf. We will be keeping a close eye throughout the day to make sure you are informed and up to date on the latest weather conditions. For now, the main threats are for damaging winds and some isolated tornadoes Tuesday evening.
Once the front passes through Wednesday morning, the clouds will slowly clear and cooler air will move back in. Temperatures will be in the upper 50’s to near 60° Wednesday afternoon. Sunshine and seasonable temperatures are anticipated for the rest of the work week and into the weekend.
