I've been keeping a watchful eye on radar tonight, but it looks like the rain to our west will fizzle out before it moves into our state. It's possible we could see a light shower in Lamar or Marion County overnight, but the overall chance of rain will be low. I do expect some widespread cloud cover with lows falling to around 51. We may actually wake up to some clouds Tuesday morning with temperatures quickly climbing into the lower 60s. Sunshine is back in the forecast during the afternoon with highs in the mid to upper 70s. A few places may actually reach 80 degrees.
Sunshine is expected to continue through at least Wednesday. Temperatures Wednesday afternoon will climb into the lower 80s in West Alabama. We'll see a slight increase in cloud cover Wednesday afternoon and evening ahead of our next system.
A cool front will approach the the state Thursday. I think most of the day will be dry and warm with highs in the lower 80s. It's likely we will see rain late Thursday and again on Friday as the system moves across the state.
Fortunately, the support for severe weather is lacking and we'll just see some thunderstorms and rain. This weather will linger through much of Friday with some clearing expected over the weekend. The GFS solution looks a bit wetter over the weekend for us, but the Euro continues to show a drier forecast with high pressure dominating our weather pattern. Looks like the front will move to the Gulf Coast over the weekend with temperatures a bit cooler Saturday and Sunday. Highs will reach the upper 60s and lower 70s.
It is the time of year when pollen is a huge problem and this week is no exception. I'm seeing pollen levels again in the high category through the rest of the week.
