Enjoy your Sunday with temperatures in the lower 80s this afternoon. We'll see plenty of sunshine through the day. Expect a small chance for rain late tonight with overnight lows around 63. FIRST ALERT: Stormy and rainy Monday. Widespread showers and thunderstorms are expected on Monday.
The strongest storms will remain south of I-20. We will likely have a wet drive into work/school for West Alabama. Expect occasional gusty winds. The tornado threat remains low, but we could see a few strong to severe storms. Most of the rain should clear the area by 3-4pm. Highs during the afternoon will reach the lower 70s. Tuesday will be the clam before the storm. Expect mostly sunny skies with highs in the lower 80s.
FIRST ALERT: Wednesday will be wet and stormy with the potential for dangerous weather. This is a day we'll have to watch closely. Damaging winds, tornadoes, and hail are all possible. Some models are trending toward incredible instability values (over 4,000 j/kg). We're still working on the the when and where in Alabama, but right now I think the best chance would be late morning through the afternoon.
It is possible this could be a significant severe weather day. Stay close to weather information over the next several days for changes in the forecast. Highs Wednesday will reach the upper 70s. Cooler and drier weather is expected late week. Highs Thursday will reach the mid 60s with lows in the lower 40s. Friday will be mostly sunny with temperatures in the 60s. Expect sunshine to continue through the weekend.
CALL TO ACTION: Make sure you have multiple ways to receive severe weather warning this week including the First Alert weather app.
