Hot Days Continue… Thursday Afternoon Forecast Update – 3:50pm #alwx @wvua23

Upper level ridging will keep our weather mostly sunny and quiet through Easter Sunday. A weak surface front will approach from the northwest Sunday night and on Monday. A stray afternoon shower is possible Sunday afternoon, but most of you will not get rain. Rain chances will increase to 30% on Monday, especially for north Alabama, as the front nears the area. The front will washout and we’ll be left with a humid, summer-like airmass. Highs will remain in the low to mid 80s, with a small chance of an isolated shower or storm each afternoon through mid to late week.
