TRACKING STORMS TO OUR NORTH: Tonight I’m tracking a line of strong to severe storms dropping south across the state of Kentucky. These storms are along a front that will stall to our north for the next couple of days. It’s possible the tail end of this line could bring us some rain and perhaps a storm by 7 a.m. tomorrow morning. The greatest chance for rain will be in our northwest counties. You may also encounter some pockets of dense fog in the morning, especially over southern locations. A Dense Fog Advisory is currently in effect for southwest Alabama.
We will have another mix of clouds and sunshine for tomorrow, with additional isolated showers and storms popping up later in the day. The chance of a few showers or a storm will continue on Tuesday as the front pushes south across our area. Storms that develop may produce strong wind gusts and small hail so we want to give you the First Alert.
CHANGES BY WEDNESDAY: Tuesday will be another warm day but you will start to notice the drop in temperatures on Wednesday, with highs back in the 60s. In addition, the chance for rain will linger as moisture continues to overrun the state. I’m expecting an overcast sky during the Wednesday and Thursday time frame with a period of rain. This will be a chilly rain event as lows tumble into the low 50s early Thursday. By Thursday afternoon the rain should be exiting the state and we will have gradual clearing later in the day, with sunshine returning on Friday.
THE WEEKEND AND VETERANS DAY: Saturday looks to be a dry day, with lots of sunshine. So you can expect nice weather for the Veteran’s Day events. Highs will be in the 60s, with colder mornings as lows tumble into the 40s. There will be another front impacting the region on Sunday so this could bring a chance of showers and possibly a storm to the area for the second half of the weekend. I will have more details on this system in my forecast tonight at 9, 9:30 and 10 p.m. on WBRC. We may be talking about another system in the tropics later in the week. A system over the central Atlantic has a 70% chance of development within the next five days. The good news is that this system will remain well out over the central Atlantic and poses no threat to the U.S. If a system develops you can find the latest tropical tracks on our WBRC First Alert Weather App. The next name on the 2017 list is Rina. Have a great evening!
