One Last Day of Sunshine Before Rain Returns to the Forecast…Saturday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (2)Good Saturday evening! Today was another picture-perfect day weather wise across the coverage area as highs soared into the mid 60s and even the upper 60s in many parts of Central Alabama. As we go into the late evening and overnight hours, expect dry conditions to continue and overnight lows to be falling into the upper 30s and low 40s.

On Sunday, expect much of the same weather story as a surface high pressure moves over the region and keeps us dry. Temperatures will be reaching the upper 60s and low 70s and overnight lows will be in the low to mid 50s. Clouds will be increasing though during the late evening and overnight hours in front of our next big weather maker, so enjoy this last day of sunshine.

As we start the next work week, unfortunately rain will be back. Expect widespread moderate to heavy showers on Monday and into Wednesday. These will likely be all-day rain events, so be sure and keep the umbrella close by. The biggest threat associated with this event is going to flooding as possible rain amounts could top five inches by the end of the week. However, we will continue to monitor the risk for severe storms as we gain higher confidence with multiple model runs.

By Thursday, much of the rain will begin tapering off and clouds will begin clearing, so plan on nice weather to return and continue into the weekend. Highs will be reaching the mid to upper 60s with lows in the 40s each day.

Rain Tonight and Tomorrow…Dry and Cooler Weather Ahead. Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (1)Good Sunday evening! Almost all of the coverage area has remained dry today, except for a few sprinkles here and there as cloud cover has increased due to the next system moving through the region. Expect heavier showers to be moving in by around midnight and into the early morning hours. Overnight lows will be dropping into the upper 40s.

This rainfall will continue into Monday as we start the next work week, so plan on getting the rain gear ready. There will be no organized severe storms expected, but heavier pockets of rain during the late afternoon and evening hours could cause some persisting flooding issues across some areas of Central Alabama. Highs will be reaching the lower 60s and overnight lows will be falling into the low 50s and upper 40s again.

The good news is that this rain will quickly exit the area as we go into Tuesday. A few early morning showers could be possible as you head out the door, but this will taper off by around 8 a.m. Skies will retain a good bit of cloud cover and highs will be even warmer as they will reach the mid 60s. However, this will all change come Wednesday when a cold front will bring a big drop in temperatures. Highs will likely struggle to make it to the low 50s. In addition, some shower activity could be associated with this incoming front, but at this time models show isolated to very few showers.

On Thursday and Friday, sunshine will finally make its way back in the forecast, but it is going to be cold. Overnight lows will be in the lower 30s and even upper 20s, so be sure and grab an extra layer. Heading into the weekend on Saturday, we could see a few minimal showers as another disturbance passes through the area, but at this time it is far too early to have a high confidence. Expect highs on Sunday to be in the mid to upper 50s.
