Wet Weather Returns Next Week

Weather Pattern Monday Morning

Weather Pattern Monday Morning

We got a nice break from the rain this weekend, but more showers are on the way to kick off the work week. By Sunday afternoon a steady push of southeasterly air will already start to pull in more moisture. A switch to southeasterly winds will also keep temperatures milder, so we’re not worried about wintry precipitation. This comes ahead of our next cold front which will push through Monday morning.

A few isolated showers will be possible as soon as Sunday evening after 9PM, out ahead of the front. The better chance for rain will come Monday morning though. You might hear a few rumbles of thunder overnight, but there won’t be a lot of instability for storms. You could still get some wind gusts up to 30 mph and heavy showers though.

Rain will taper off into Monday afternoon, but we won’t completely dry out. It looks like the cold front could linger in Central or Southern Alabama, keeping a few stray showers around even into Tuesday. This system will drop another 0.25″-1.00″ across the Valley, with the heavier amounts focused on Northwestern Alabama.
