Rain Chances Increasing

We ended up with much more widespread coverage of showers and storms across western and northern sections Saturday due to the mid-level trough in place across the lower Mississippi river valley.

Some of those storms produced 2-3 inches of rain in some spots. That’s just a sample of what we will likely see this week as deep moisture returns across all of the southeast.

Lots of showers and storms are ongoing along the Gulf Coast and the northern Gulf this morning associated with a surface trough. We expect showers and storms to develop and propagate northward through the afternoon with the best coverage over southern Alabama.

Heavy rainfall can be expected at times with the high moisture content. Gusty winds and frequent lightning is also expected.

Southwesterly flow aloft will really begin to increase and numerous showers and storms will develop state wide for much of the day on Monday.

We can expect very heavy downpours as additional rounds of storms develop and move northward through Tuesday.
