Rain for Monday, Strong Storms in South Alabama…Sunday Evening Update 9 p.m.
December 4, 2016 Leave a comment
Good Sunday evening! It was a cool and gloomy day across the state. Showers in central Alabama have remained very light throughout the day making for a dreary end to the weekend. Tonight, showers should continue across the state; however, they won’t last all night for any one area. They will be passing through from west to east.
Tomorrow, a secondary low will develop near the coast of Texas early Monday morning and traverse northeastward. It will bring even more rain to the state throughout Monday. Increased dew points will aid in decreasing stability and allow for thunderstorm activity. South Alabama may experience some severe weather with this system coming in. The main risks come with damaging winds up to 60 mph, along with the low opportunity for a spin up tornado.
Tuesday holds showers lingering for northeast Alabama, so we will hold onto rain chances, but they will remain low. After Tuesday, skies will clear some for Wednesday. Zonal flow and upper level moisture will allow for some clouds to stick around during the day. Other than the extra clouds, Wednesday looks to be the most “normal day” out of the forecast for the next seven days. Thursday, a deep, powerful trough will dig south into the state, pulling with it MUCH cooler air for the state. Moisture by that time will be limited across Alabama so shower development will be very low as the system passes through from west to east. Friday will be very chilly with not only cooler temperatures, but gusty winds coming out of the north from the front passing.
Next weekend will start off cool still and with lots of sun. Sunday, central Alabama will start to have extra clouds make their way into the state from the northwest. Central Alabama should remain dry, but showers will be possible for northwest Alabama during the day with a weak upper level disturbance.
