We’re waking up to some cloudy, foggy, and damp conditions this morning. The heaviest rain has made a push into far south Alabama, with only isolated showers located in eastern sections of our area. I expect the rain to stay south of our area throughout the rest of today, with some sunshine breaking through the clouds after 2 PM. We will remain mostly cloudy at times, with highs reaching the lower 60s. Tonight we may have some areas of fog returning, with lows in the upper 30s.
A cold front will remained stalled to our south this weekend and this will continue to produce rain and storms across the Wiregrass Region. We will have a period of sunshine followed by an increase in clouds as the front begins to march northward tomorrow.
Keeping a Close Eye on Monday
We will be keeping a very close eye on the setup for Monday. This morning the models are showing a very energetic storm system arriving late on Monday. There will be a strong surge of warm/moist air in advance of this system. The big question is will this unstable air reach central Alabama? If the warmer-unstable sector of this system can reach our area, severe weather will be possible. For now we’re forecasting a good chance of rain and thunderstorms starting late tomorrow night and continuing into Monday. By Tuesday the threat for rain will end but then our attention will turn towards another big cool down. Highs by next weekend will struggle to reach the mid 40s, with lows in the upper teens and lower 20s. I’ll have more details on Fox 6 news Saturday morning starting at 7 AM.
