Cooler Air Returning to the Forecast…Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (1).jpegGood Sunday evening! Temperatures have broken several records today in Huntsville and Muscle Shoals with highs in the low to mid 70s across much of the state. We have also seen a line of showers and storms move throughout the area ahead of a cold front approaching our region. Some of these storms were severe, but most of the risks associated with these storms have diminished over West Alabama as they continue to weaken. Expect a tornado watch to remain in effect until 9 p.m. as we monitor the radar for any future developments. Overnight lows will be dropping into the mid and upper 40s.

As we start the next work week, cooler and much more seasonal air will return behind the front. Highs will struggle to reach the upper 50s and lower 60s, and overnight lows will be tumbling into the 30s until we head into the weekend. Expect plenty of sunshine up until Thursday when a low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico will develop and bring measurable rain back to the state.

On Thursday and Friday, expect a bit of a washout, so be sure and keep your umbrella handy. These days do not seem to pose any severe threats, but flash flooding will be possible with the amounts of rain predicted. Expect anywhere from two to three inches during these two days.

By the weekend, dry conditions will make its way back into the forecast as this next system exits the area. Plan on each day to feature a mixture of sun and clouds, and highs will remain in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
