Gloomy, Warm Weather On The Way…Sunday Evening Update 7:40p.m.
January 15, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Sunday evening! Today was another fantastic day, weather-wise. Unfortunately, we’ve got big changes coming tomorrow for the start of the work week. Tonight, we will start to see clouds developing over portions of central Alabama as high pressure ridging starts to break down. Temperatures will remain mild. A big difference tonight to several past evenings will be slightly stronger southerly flow keeping an major fog development from taking place. Tomorrow will see that high pressure ridging over the southeast slowly breaking down still; that will lead to a chance of a few stray showers tomorrow afternoon for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
Tuesday will see an approaching trough trying to slide into the state. As it approaches the I-20 corridor, the system will start to try and stall during Tuesday evening. This stalled trough will provide enough lift to get a fair amount of stray showers to fire up. A more robust pocket of air will aid in forcing to get Tuesday’s weak trough out. The stronger forcing Wednesday could aid in producing a few rumbles of thunder along with the passing showers. Thursday, negative tilting of the line of showers could produce some lasting showers for parts of south Alabama. Later Thursday, a new developing low, west, will begin to produce a new line of rain that could also contain some thunderstorms with ample forcing behind the system to get significant lifting.
For now, Friday afternoon and next weekend plan on multiple bands of heavy showers and storms to move through the state. We could see the chance for a low end severe weather event with some of these bands. That said, stay posted with us on any changing updates as we get closer to next weekend.
