Warming Work Week…Sunday Evening Update 7:40p.m.
January 8, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Sunday evening! We were cold once again today across central Alabama. A light cloud deck that moved in around lunchtime today kept temperatures slightly cooler, but most warmed above freezing: that helped out with getting more of our stubborn, sticking ice to melt. Tonight will once again be a chilly evening, but areas south of I-20 should remain above the teens. Most road conditions should mostly back to normal besides areas that remain in the shade mostly during the day. Tomorrow, the start of the work week,will see warm air advection pulling in warmer air from the south. That will finally get rid of our remaining ice. Late Monday, into Monday night, clouds will start to develop from west to east.
Clouds that develop late Monday will continue to thicken during the day Tuesday as a weak front arrives and stalls over central Alabama Wednesday. Rain chances Tuesday will mainly be overnight for northwestern portions of the state. Wednesday will hold a slim chance of rain for areas south of I-20 since the front will stall before producing rain for southern portions of the state. Late Wednesday, the stalled front will lift back northward, stripping away any real lift for showers for Thursday and Friday. Any showers those days will be isolated, light, and mainly present in the northwest corner of the state.
Next weekend, models are having trouble building an exact timing on when exactly a stronger front to our west is set to move into our state. That will provide a great chance for showers and even a few storms. Yesterday, timing looked more like late Friday/late Saturday arrival. Models are now pushing this system back to next work week for arrival. We will be keeping rain chances for this weekend low until better agreement is established.
