Good Saturday evening! Hopefully everyone got out to enjoy the amazing weather today. We will have another dose of it tomorrow…sort of. Tonight will remain clear and calm, leading into Sunday morning. Around lunchtime, we should start to slowly see clouds gradually mixing in. By sunset, skies will likely be partly cloudy. Then, clouds will continue to thicken until around midnight when storms start to shift into the state from a low that is developing in Texas right now. These storms will be battling coastal showers to keep their strength up, which is why we are keeping our chance for severe weather low, and far south (shown in the image below). Storms will last for west Alabama into the early morning hours, followed by showers. Meanwhile, east Alabama will see the storms arriving later, around lunch time. West Alabama will likely start to see some clearing taking place by Monday afternoon with the current timing of the storms passing. Stay posted with us on any changes in the forecast for this.
Tuesday will once again turn back to everyone’s favorite: sunny and warm temperatures. Sadly, that will not last long. Wednesday, a front will move into the state, bringing showers and storms that will last into Thursday with current timings. This front will have some serious forcing taking place behind it with such cold air following to pushing it along (notice the DRAMATICALLY cooler temperatures later in the forecast). We are watching this system closely. Models show some serious coastal showers and storms setting up, but as mentioned, there will also be some serious forcing to keep this thing going. We will keep monitoring this over the next several days to keep you posted.
Heading into next weekend, temperatures are slow to warm back up after the cold front passes, meaning temperatures will feel amazing. Friday might be a little chilly, but Saturday should be amazing.
