Increasing Rain Chances

A weak surface low in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico is forecast to drift northward through Tuesday.

As the low nears the Florida Panhandle, rain chances will increase especially for the southeastern sections of the state.

Showers and storms will move north and west as the low retrogrades westward through the day into Tuesday night.

With the increase of clouds and showers, daytime high temperatures will be held back into the 80’s in most locations.

Meanwhile, we will be watching the approach of a weak cold front approaching north Alabama by Wednesday. Models indicate the front may move into the northern sections of the state and stall out.

Moisture is expected to remain in the region and partly to mostly cloudy conditions at times with scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected through the end of the week.

A strong cold front is forecast to drop down into the southeast on Saturday. Models continue to indicate a cooler and drier airmass to move into the region.
