Active Weather Pattern

 

442am

A busy weather morning across the northwestern sections of Alabama, as another MCS like feature is providing soaking rains over this region of the state.

The activity was occurring along and just ahead of a weak cold front located near the region. This activity has produced some impressive rainfall rates…with Doppler radar estimates around 2-4 inches in some locations.

This convection has more or less been on a gradual weakening trend over the past couple of hours.

Rain chances today will be dependent on the lingering convection this morning…and then on any redevelopment later today along and ahead of the cold front as the boundary drifts to the southeast.

Ample heating and moisture coupled with low level convergence along existing outflow boundaries may produce more strong storms later today. These will be capable of brief and perhaps torrential rainfall and strong gusty outflow winds.

The clouds and rain will hold daytime highs down today across most areas.
