Another Cold Front Moves Into Alabama

 

Mon-8-28

A cold front is moving into north Alabama early this morning. As expected there have been some scattered showers and thunderstorms since Midnight associated with the system. However, most areas have seen no rain.

Drier air moving into the state from north to south will reduce the chances of seeing additional storm development for most areas of north Alabama for today.

The cooler air behind the front won’t be felt as much today across the northern sections, but drier air will reduce humidity levels.

The cooler air arrives tonight and will be very noticeable by Tuesday morning.

Afternoon highs will warm into the mid to upper 80s across the north, behind the front. Highs will be in the low to mid 90s across the south.

We will be watching the cold front for the southern areas of the state.
Isolated severe storms will be possible ahead of a strong cold front Monday afternoon, generally along and south of a Demopolis to Clanton to Alexander City line.

The main threats will be damaging straight line winds and large hail. Of course, brief heavy rainfall and lightning can be expected with any storms.
