I hope you had a wonderful Easter Sunday! It was rainy at times however we did catch some decent breaks. I actually noticed the sun trying to peak through the clouds during the afternoon. The heaviest rain and storm activity has made a push into far south Alabama. We are monitoring one more band of rain located from Hamilton northeast to Fort Payne. This activity will drift southward tonight, with rain ending from northwest to southeast. It’s going to be another mild and damp night with lowering visibilities. Patchy dense fog will be possible after midnight.
A Nice Monday
Early morning fog should give way to some nice weather for tomorrow. I’m expecting a good supply of sunshine, with afternoon highs in the lower 70s. Tomorrow night the sky will clear but winds will increase as cooler/drier air arrives. The cool down on Tuesday doesn’t look quite as impressive. Daytime highs are expected to reach the low 60s, with overnight lows in the 40s.
(Futurecast: Next rainmakers position Tuesday night.)
More Rain Wednesday
Another storm system is expected to take shape across the northern Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday. This system will spread lots of clouds into our area, with showers arriving by the afternoon. A shield of steady rain is expected to impact our area Wednesday night and early Thursday. This should be a chilly rain event, with temperatures mainly in the 50s. If the storm system takes a more northerly track the risk of a few strong to severe storms could lift into Alabama. As of right now thankfully, there is no risk for severe weather. Lingering clouds on the backside of the system could help make for a chilly Friday but we do expect warmer weather for next Saturday as clouds decrease. Have a great evening!
