Rain Again For Sunday…Saturday Evening Update 9p.m.


Good Saturday evening! It was a gloomy day across the state with lots of cloud cover staying put all day. That kept highs a little cooler in the lower 50’s, with a few areas north in the mid-to-upper 40’s. Showers have been the most news worthy thing from the weather to discuss. Rain from west to east has been lighter so parts of west Alabama have seen up to about half an inch today, while portions of east Alabama have only seen totals closer to a tenth of an inch. Tonight, the rain will keep on pouring across the state, with times of pauses between shower development and movement. Temperatures will struggle to drop tonight so lows will range in the 40’s.

Tomorrow, Sunday, closes off the weekend with still more showers across the state throughout the day. West Alabama will start to see precipitation come to an end later in the, while east Alabama will see rain lasting well past sunset. Highs for Sunday will once again be cool in the lower 50’s.

Next work week looks to start off with still more much needed rain. A secondary low that will develop off the first system arriving this weekend will bring more precipitation to the state. Increased dew points Monday evening will likely aid in the production of a few thunderstorms to mix in with the showers. That system will take a little time to move out of the state, providing the opportunity for a few isolated showers for Tuesday, mainly in east Alabama. Wednesday will see partly sunny skies. Zonal flow and still present moisture will aid in cloud development: precipitation no longer looks favorable do develop for the day so rain chances have been dropped. Thursday we start to watch for a huge trough to dig into the south. With it, MUCH cooler temperatures will arrive, likely the coolest we’ve seen so far going towards winter. Model disagreement is coming to an end with precipitation chances for Thursday with the entering of that trough. Rain chances will remain low as the system will have very little moisture to work with. Friday will be COLD! Highs in the low 40’s are being predicted. Winds from the north will be very strong after the passing of the trough so wind-chill will be even colder.
