An area of low pressure is expected to dig south from the Great Lakes later today and begin the push which will move a stalled front south. This will set us up for the beginning of the week with a northwest wind flow ushering in drier, more stable air while increasing temperatures in the week ahead. The heavy, flooding rains from Sunday morning will persist in some areas with better than average rain chances through tonight. The clouds and rain will manage to limit temperatures to the 80s.
As this system digs south, followed by another front Tuesday night and Wednesday, an area of high pressure will build over Central Alabama limiting rain chances for most of the week. The high pressure will persist for most of the week with the only rain chances in the afternoon during peak heating hours. Highs will climb into the mid to upper 90s Thursday with middle 90s possible through the weekend. Heat Index Readings for the period could top 105 degrees.
