Clouds and Moisture Increasing

Clouds are increasing over Alabama ahead of the next system to affect the state.
A upper level disturbance is located over northern Mexico. This feature is expected to strengthen slightly and move eastward across southern Texas and to coastal Louisiana by the end of the day on Wednesday.

Meanwhile a surface low pressure is expected to develop over the western Gulf and move east into the central Gulf during the day as well.

We are pretty certain that rain will become widespread through the day for southern and eventually central sections of the state.

This system becomes more tricky for northern sections of Alabama. A cold front will approach form the northwest.

The front will bring a limited amount of moisture along with more arctic air. At this point, we just don’t see any deep moisture from the south making it north.

As the front makes it way into northern Alabama late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, some snow flurries will occur. There could be some snow showers, much like we seen on Monday.

There is a chance that we could see some moisture increase that the models are not picking up. We will be watching this, in the event that we see more widespread snow showers early Thursday morning.

Even if we were to see an increase in moisture, I’d be surprised to see much more than a dusting of snow…stay tuned.
