Nice for Now… Rain Wed Night/Early Thursday… Monday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon!  A tight pressure gradient across the area has led to a breezy day, with winds gusting to 25mph for most of our Monday. Winds will go calm this evening, and temperatures will quickly drop into the 50s. Look for a fairly cool start to our Tuesday, with a morning low of 51 degrees. With a surface high nearby on Tuesday, we can expect lots of sunshine again.

A southeast to south wind will develop on Wednesday, brining moisture back into the area. We’ll remain dry during the day, but a cluster of rain and storms will move into the area Wednesday night and move out early on Thursday. At this point, severe weather appears unlikely. Look for a good soaking, especially in areas south of Hamilton, Cullman and Gadsden. Additional showers are possible Thursday afternoon, but the heavier rain will be during the pre-dawn hours.

Expect cooler temperatures on Thursday and especially on Friday. Highs will remain in the upper 60s on Friday, with a breezy northwest wind. Clouds will gradually clear out on Friday, with sunshine back over the weekend. We’ll quickly warm back into the 80s on Sunday and Monday.

Showers and Storms Tonight. Radar Update, 12:15pm. #wxal @wvua23

We are watching a second round of showers and storms moving through tonight. The good news is, these will not be as strong as what we saw several hours earlier. These storms will stay too elevated in the atmosphere for tornadic activity; however, they will produce some gusty winds and a few areas could see some hail. 

Currently,  right now Marengo County is under a severe thunderstorm warning, but that storm spawning the warning is only producing what was prior mentioned. We might get a few more storms like this overnight. Other than that, we will have a calm evening.
