Scattered Afternoon Showers and Storms Stick Around for Work Week…Sunday Evening Update 9p.m.

Good Sunday evening! Showers and storms have popped-up and traversed across many portions of Alabama; despite the rain, many still got to experience periods of sunshine, making for a not so terrible ending to the weekend. Tonight the remaining showers and storms will gradually come to an end overnight. A few clouds will stick around overnight to help start Monday morning off before another batch of storms develop again in the afternoon…meaning keep that umbrella or rain jacket handy! 

The remainder of the work week will be very similar with showers and storms constantly redeveloping in the afternoons, mixed with periods of sunshine. All the rain is going to add up over time and we could see rain totals at least over four inches in the coming days. All this rain isn’t necessarily a bad thing though since we have remained very dry this summer, leading to some minor drought conditions.

Next weekend looks to slowly try and dry out as a new trough will finally start to move in and help drive out the stalled boundary over Alabama and the low pressure circulation in Florida.

Looking in the tropics, the first low pressure system has moved onto the coast of Florida. Now that it is on land, no development is expected with it; however, this system is going to be what really helps drive moisture into Alabama over the coming days, providing the opportunity for showers and storms in the afternoons. The second system will gradually traverse north, but growth with it will be very limited due to upper level winds trying to tear the system apart.
