REST OF TODAY AND TONIGHT: The line of rain that marched south into Alabama during the morning has mostly dissipated. However, a boundary remains stalled out just to our north and this will trigger more isolated showers and possibly a storm this evening and overnight. The rain coverage today is going to remain rather hit or miss but tomorrow the chances for wet weather will begin to rise. The bigger weather story for our area through the afternoon will be the continued unseasonable warmth and humid weather. The sky will remain mostly cloudy today and tonight. Highs will be in the mid-70s, with lows in the 60s.
FRONT ARRIVES TOMORROW: The change to cooler weather will begin to take place after tomorrow. A front will enter our northwest counties by lunchtime tomorrow and continue to march southeast through the entire coverage area. I’m expecting some shower development along the front so hang on to the umbrella. A storm can’t be ruled out but I’m not expecting much in the form of noisemakers. On Wednesday the cooler air will settle in as moisture overruns the state. This will bring cooler, cloudy, and rainy weather to our area. I’m expecting a period of rain to set in by Wednesday afternoon and continue Wednesday night and into the day on Thursday. The rain should exit by Thursday afternoon with clearing for Friday and Veterans Day. I will talk more about the weekend and a rain chance for Sunday coming up at noon on WBRC.
