RAIN IS LIKELY TODAY INTO TUESDAY MORNING; STREAK OF DRY DAYS AHEAD… Plenty of rain is set to happen late this morning through this evening across south Alabama and northwest Florida. There could be isolated areas of heavy rain, although I expect light to moderate rain to be the more common theme today. The Storm Prediction Center continues to include all of our local area in their “General Thunderstorms” zone, meaning there is no formal risk of severe weather in place today. Simply put, you may hear a clap of thunder or two before the end of the day, but I am not expecting hazardous weather. Rain will likely linger into tonight and into Tuesday morning before clearing out by Tuesday afternoon. We have a streak of sunny, cool, DRY days ahead starting on Wednesday! This will be the longest streak of dry days we’ve had in quite some time as Wednesday through Monday are expected to be dry. Let’s look at your forecast details.
RAIN CHANCES PEAK THIS AFTERNOON… Rain will be falling in many places across our region this afternoon into this evening. The greatest chance of rain will happen from 10AM to 6PM. Rain will likely linger well into the night, especially for areas along, south, and east of Interstate 65.
SHOWERS TUESDAY A.M. & COLD FRONT PASSES TUESDAY AFTERNOON… The last of the rain until next week happens Tuesday morning. Rain will gradually taper off from west to east late Tuesday morning. A cold front will move through our area on Tuesday afternoon, knocking down temperatures from near 70° to the upper-50s by 8PM. Clouds will likely stick around until the very early morning hours of Wednesday.
DRIER, COOLER WEATHER STARTS WEDNESDAY… Arguably the number one question I’ve had lately is, “When will we get a streak of nice, dry days?” I’m glad to say that starts Wednesday! Mostly sunny skies are expected Wednesday with high temperatures in the low- to mid-60s. In addition to the sunny days, winter makes its potential last stand with overnight lows expected to be in the 30s Thursday through Sunday mornings.
NICE, SUNNY END TO THE WEEK… Full sunshine is expected on both Thursday and Friday. High temperatures will be near 60° each day with morning lows in the 30s. A large dome of high pressure will be in control of our local weather pattern, meaning finally we get a break from the rain and a break from active weather!
DRY, COOL WEEKEND UPCOMING… There could be a few passing clouds on Saturday, but overall, I’m expecting Saturday and Sunday to be mostly sunny with temperatures in their seasonal range for this time of year. High temperatures will be in the low- to mid-60s with morning lows in the mid-30s.
