Don’t Forget the Sunscreen

High pressure continues to build into the southeast providing dry conditions and abundant sunshine.

Surface high pressure centered to our south will slowly move eastward across the Northern Gulf.

This will allow for more southerly flow across the area. Not much change will occur over the next couple of days, as the upper level ridge remains anchored across the region.

Clear skies and temperatures reaching into the 80’s will be the theme through Wednesday.

Mid and upper level winds will become southerly by Friday, as the next system advances to the east. Moisture will increase with dewpoints reaching into the mid 60’s.

An upper level trough will eject from the Rockies and move eastward on Friday…as a developing cold front crosses the Plains.

The front will reach central Alabama late in the period, with rain chances increasing Friday night and Saturday.

Model differences vary with the overall setup of this system, and will be updated this week.
