CLEARING SKIES LATER TODAY; RAIN AGAIN ON WEDNESDAY & FRIDAY… Lingering showers and clouds will progressively move out and to our east on this Monday as temperatures rise into the mid-60s by the afternoon hours. We have somewhat of a mixed bag of weather in the next few days in terms of rain, but temperatures will be remarkably consistent over the next 7 to 10 days. Tuesday will be dry, Wednesday will likely be wet, Thursday will be dry, while Friday will likely be wet. I see nothing in the model guidance to suggest any widespread weather hazards across our area over the next 7 days. Rain will be possible at times, but overall we are in a pretty quiet pattern. Don’t get used to it though. Active weather is inevitable this time of year! Let’s look at your forecast details.
TEMPS NEAR CLIMATOLOGICAL NORMS… High temperatures will be within 5 degrees (higher or lower) of the 60 degree mark through Sunday. It is the same story with our overnight lows. Most spots will generally be in the low-40s each morning through Sunday. Those temperatures are exactly where climatology data suggests our long-term average should be for late January.
SKIES TO CLEAR FROM WEST TO EAST TODAY… All of the rain will have shifted to our east into southeast Alabama and the Florida Panhandle region by Noon. Cloud coverage should decrease from west to east this afternoon into the evening hours. I expect some spots to have peeks of sunshine for multiple hours today. High temperatures will be in the mid-60s around 2PM.
MAINLY SUNNY ON TUESDAY… Sunny skies are likely on Tuesday morning with temperatures rising into the low-60s by Noon. High temperatures will be in the mid- to upper-60s with a few passing clouds possible in the afternoon and evening hours. No rain is expected on Tuesday, but rain is set to return on Wednesday.
SHOWERS LIKELY WEDNESDAY… Another area of low pressure will move near or across our region on Wednesday, meaning scattered rain showers will again be possible. Surface-based instability looks to remain low or near zero in most spots, meaning thunderstorms will likely be limited to areas near the immediate coastline. Severe weather is not expected with this system. Temperatures will be in the upper-50s throughout the day on Wednesday.
DRY THURSDAY; RAIN FRIDAY INTO SATURDAY… We get a break from the rain on Thursday ahead of yet another area of low pressure approaching from the west. Rain will be possible Friday evening into Saturday morning. The overall chance of any strong to severe thunderstorms currently looks low. We’ll keep you posted this week in the RedZone Weather app.
