Sunday looks very much like Saturday across North Alabama, with a mix of sun and clouds and warm temperatures in the upper 70s. The chance for pop up showers has dropped considerably based on data trends this evening, so we have taken rain chances out of the forecast for Sunday. That changes though as we kick off a new week.
Daily chances for showers and a few thunderstorms will continue for much of the week ahead. Much of the day Monday is dry, but our next chance for widespread rainfall begins Monday evening and continues into Tuesday. By Monday night, a weak front will slide into North Alabama. Combine this front with plenty of moisture from the Gulf, widespread showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms are possible into the day Tuesday. We are not expecting severe weather at this time.
More chances for showers and a few storms continue for the rest of the upcoming week, with the last rain chance arriving Thursday that will bring much cooler air back into North Alabama. No day looks to be a washout this week. Rainfall totals will stay low due to the more scattered nature of our rain chances this week. Most locations can expect around a quarter to half inch of rain this week. Highs stay in the mid to upper 70s with some nudging into the lower 80s by Wednesday before crashing into the 60s Friday.
