Another Cold Front on the Way

Skies are mostly clear and winds calm across Alabama to start out the day. We expect another mostly sunny day for most of the state.

The surface high ridge over Alabama will slide southward this morning. This will allow low level winds to become southwesterly ahead of an approaching quick moving front.

Models are in good agreement that convection should be confined to the front itself…which is currently crossing the Ohio River with a broken line of showers and thunderstorms.

Models have this activity dropping into northwest Alabama late this afternoon. The strength of the system combined with daytime heating will produce scattered showers and thunderstorms. Some of the thunderstorms might be strong with gusty winds the main threat.

Afternoon high temperatures are expected to warm into the mid 80’s across the north and low 90’s in the south.

The front and any storms should quickly drop southward through the state tonight with the chances of scattered storms diminishing with passage of the system.

By Monday morning the front will be in the far southern sections of the state, and clear the state by Monday afternoon.
