CURRENT DROUGHT MONITOR: Abnormally dry conditions continue to develop across parts of central and northeast Alabama. Moderate drought is developing across extreme northeast Alabama as well.
Rain is in the forecast but not until the upcoming week! Each day there is a chance for rain. Instability will be low on Monday and so there is only a chance for showers rather than thunderstorms. Best chance sets up north of I-20. On Tuesday, the upper level pattern will be more conducive for rain and thunderstorms. Southwesterly flow aloft will allow storm systems to track across Alabama from time to time this upcoming week. That will mean many chances daily for showers and storms. At this point, it's too early out to know exact strength, timing, placement and impact of each disturbance.
Here's a look at the daily rain chance forecast for the upcoming week. We'll continue to tweak the chances as we get more confident with the timing and placement.
For now, you'll need to continue to water the lawn and garden!
Have a lovely weekend,
