Another Cold Front on the Way

 

An amplifying upper level trough will bring another cold front to Alabama by the middle of the week.

Before the front arrives, conditions will remain quite warm and unstable across the area.

Upper level conditions including a little bit of shear this afternoon will enhance the thunderstorm chances for this afternoon.

As in the past 3 days, locally heavy rainfall will set up in some of the storms. This can produce several inches of rain in a short period of time, producing some flooding.

Along with the heavy rain potential, look for lots of cloud to ground lightning and strong winds. We will be watching for a few of the storms to become severe with the threat of straight line winds to occur.

Afternoon high temperatures may reach 90 in most locations before the storms start to kick in, with some low 90’s in the southern sections.

Thunderstorm chances will stay on the rather high side area wide until the front slides into the state on Tuesday night into Wednesday.

At that point, slightly cooler temperatures and lower dewpoints will work their way into Alabama. The rain chances will become limited to areas along and south of the front…whereas the front may stall in the extreme southern parts of the state.
