We started off Tuesday with a cloudy sky thanks to moisture streaming in from the south. We're still not saturated enough to see any rainfall. In fact, we'll make it through the rest of the day and most of tonight with dry weather. Sunshine will be a rare sight over the next few days. Bama fans and players left sunny South Florida for the clouds of Alabama. Temperatures will feel more like Florida over the next several days.
During the overnight, I anticipate rain to move in from the west. This system is probably not going to be quite as wet as first thought. Most of the forecast guidance is indicating the rain will be localized to West Alabama and then move northeast across the state.
The RPM model is indicating the best chance of rain on Wednesday will be during the morning hours.
You're probably wondering about the line of storms in Mississippi and where they will go. I think the best chance of thunderstorms will track north of the Fox 6 viewing area. Even then, I anticipate these storms to be beneath severe weather limits. The Storm Prediction Center is outlooking only the Lousiana and Texas Gulf Coast for a chance of severe weather tomorrow.
The next few days look incredibly warm. I would anticipate temperatures reaching the mid to perhaps upper 70s by Saturday afternoon. Keep in mind, the average high this time of year is in the mid 50s.
Have a great day!
