RAIN MOVES OUT TODAY; COLD TEMPERATURES AHEAD OVER NEXT FEW DAYS… Monday is set to be quite cold with high temperatures only in the upper-40s. Temperatures will dip to around 40 degrees tonight ahead of multiple nights with temperatures near or just below freezing as we start the month of February. The reason temperatures are taking a tumble is because of a cold front that is currently in the process of moving across our region from northwest to southeast. This front is over west Alabama now and will continue to move southeast in the hours ahead. Once the front passes your location, rain chances will drop to near zero. A few more Sunday evening forecast notes are below.

RAIN & STORMS MOVE OUT IN THE HOURS AHEAD… Scattered showers continue to move east across the area as of 1PM. There could be a few rumbles of thunder in some locales in the hours ahead as the back edge of the showers moves east right along the cold front that is currently moving across our region. Severe weather continues to seem quite unlikely today. We are seeing some peaks of sunshine on the western side of our region and it seems like this will be the trend in the overnight hours with scattered clouds around.

COOL DAYS & COLD NIGHTS AHEAD… Clouds will hang tough in many spots on Monday with temperatures only in the 40s throughout the day. A brisk northwest wind (8-13 mph) will cause wind chill values to remain in the upper-30s and low-40s all day. Overnight lows on Tuesday (see graphic attached) and Wednesday mornings will be near or just below the freezing mark in many spots locally.

NEXT RAIN CHANCE: FRIDAY… Looking ahead to the end of the week, temperatures will moderate to near 70 by Friday as rain chances rise. There is a chance we could see some thunderstorms by Friday, but it remains too early to know if strong or severe storms will be possible. Rain will be likely at times on Friday into Saturday, regardless of if a severe weather setup happens. We will keep you posted every step of the way over the next few days.

SHOWERS MOVING EAST… Sprinkles and light rain continue to move east across our area early on this Sunday morning. Two distinct bands of rain are happening. One extends from near Andalusia southeast to Loxley. The other band of rain extends from near Keith and Hybart to State Line, MS.

Showers will continue to move eastward over the next few hours.

SCATTERED SHOWERS MOVING EAST… Scattered areas of rain continue to push eastward across the area early on this Sunday morning. We note some of the showers have exhibited signs of very weak rotation offshore. There is a very low-end chance that one or two of these showers could briefly become severe later this morning. The chance of ANY place in our region going under a tornado warning today remains VERY low, as of now. We will carefully watch these low-topped showers in the hours ahead. Any stronger showers/storms would almost certainly happen in coastal areas.

Over the next few hours, intermittent rain will continue to be possible across the region.

GUSTY WINDS OVERNIGHT AHEAD OF A COLD FRONT… Wind gusts of 30-40 mph will become possible overnight into Sunday morning as a cold front arrives from the northwest. Rain chances will increase tonight into early Sunday morning as scattered showers become possible across the region. Severe storms continue to seem quite unlikely with this event, although we do note the local National Weather Service office has indicated there could be a conditional risk of a few stronger storms near the coast on Sunday, mainly between 10AM and 3PM. We’ll be watching model trends in the hours ahead to see if this becomes more of a potential. This will be a rain event for most spots with most locales picking up around a quarter to a half of an inch of rain.

I’ll have radar updates tonight and into Sunday in the RedZone Weather app. Have a nice Saturday evening!
