Today's weather finds us wedged between high pressure over the Gulf and Atlantic and a frontal boundary to the northwest. Moisture will be limited and warm, temperatures will continue and with the high pressure we will see limited rainfall chances even with ample moisture in place as indicated by dew point temperatures in the 60s. Afternoon temperatures will again be unseasonably mild, near 80 in most areas. Any shower activity will be across the northern tier of counties in Alabama, in many areas, but most areas will be dry today. A cold front will advance move southeast today, reaching Tennessee by Monday morning then stalling over southern Tennessee. This will again bring a slight chance for a few showers in Northwest Alabama tomorrow or possibly as early as late tonight but any strong storms will likely stay north of our area.
Most of the area will remain dry through tomorrow night. The front will move slowly south and east again beginning Tuesday. We will then begin to see a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. There could even be a threat for strong to isolated severe thunderstorms with the possibility of gusty winds and hail but the threat still appears limited. The front will move through the area on Wednesday with the best rain chances after the frontal passage Wednesday and Wednesday night. This will be followed by cooler temperatures Wednesday. Some rain may linger into Thursday before the front finally clears the region leaving behind cooler and drier conditions for the remainder of the work week.
