We will continue to see waves of showers and storms move through the area with the best chances for rain across the southern part of the area, with just more of the typical summertime hit and miss thunderstorms across the northern sector. By late this afternoon into the evening, we may also see a band of showers and storms moving south from the north as a rain area along a frontal boundary slides south. Rain chances all end by midnight and more low clouds and fog will redevelop during the early morning hours Sunday. The front will stall Sunday and dew points will remain high so the warm, humid air mass basically doesn't go anywhere although rain chances will be lower Sunday.

After midnight, rain chances will increase in the northwest counties from a system moving out of Texas. This system will be the next weather-maker for Alabama and could bring the next flooding potential Monday. Showers and thunderstorms also appear likely across the entire area both Monday and Tuesday as one system is followed closely by a second. Wednesday and Thursday will bring a small change in the upper air pattern over North America as an area of Canadian high pressure begins building strength and another sub-tropical ridge of high pressure forms over the Gulf Coast. However, plenty of moisture will remain so there will remain at least a chance for rain through the end of the work week.
