THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND
A surface front will be moving through the area today that will bring much drier and cooler air, but the northern half of Central Alabama may have to deal with some light rain during the morning hours. Once we reach the afternoon hours, clouds will be on the decrease and all rain will have ended. Highs in the lower 70s to the lower 80s.
Sunday will be a much cooler day as a trough settles in over the area. Clouds will make a return along with northwesterly winds. There is a very small chance of a few sprinkles, but almost everyone in Central Alabama will stay dry. Highs will be in the upper 50s to the upper 60s.
THE WORK WEEK AHEAD
The trough will continue to hang around on Monday that will keep clouds in the area during the first half of the day. It will also keep temperatures on the cool side with highs in the upper 50s to the mid 60s. We’ll begin to have a shift in our pattern on Tuesday as the trough will push off the east coast and make its way out over the Atlantic. The flow across the area will become more zonal and allow the temperatures to start to moderate. Highs in the 60s. We’ll go a little warmer on Wednesday with the zonal flow, but our weather will remain very quiet. Highs in the upper 60s to the lower 70s. A system will be trying to get organized to our west on Thursday, but none of that activity will make it into Central Alabama for now. Highs in the upper 60s to the mid 70s.
And at the end of the forecast period on Friday, we see that plenty of moisture will be pulled up from the Gulf of Mexico and a cold front will be approaching from the west. Rain will be possible at times throughout the day. Some thunder may be possible as minor instability will be present during the late night and overnight hours. For now, severe weather is not expected. Highs in the upper 60s to the mid 70s.
Sean is struggling to stay a tropical storm on Friday night and is expected to weaken into a depression today and eventually become post-tropical by Sunday morning. No threat to any land.
An area of low pressure over the Eastern Tropical Atlantic has been getting better organized and conditions will become favorable for a depression to form by the middle of next week. Current projections have this system heading west-northwestward and approaching the Windward Islands by Thursday evening. The ensembles agree on the direction, but do not go out far enough to see what happens by next weekend. Whatever happens, we’ll keep our eye on it.
