Comfortably dry Monday, next rain system approaches on Wednesday


High pressure is keeping our weather nice and dry today. We’ve got a clear blue sky and lots of sunshine today, and that will allow us to warm up into the low 80s this afternoon.

Things stay quiet overnight. Temperatures drop into the low 50s, with some spots potentially dropping into the upper 40s before daybreak Tuesday.

Clouds fill in Tuesday ahead of our next system. It will still be warm, but cloud cover generally prevents temperatures from climbing quite as high as they do Monday.

A couple of isolated showers can’t be ruled out Tuesday, but for most, things stay dry until Wednesday as our next low pressure system moves through. This brings some showers and storms Wednesday, with that rain moving out Wednesday night.

Behind that system, high pressure builds in Thursday, a North wind blows in, and temperatures take a dive into the mid to upper 60s.

This dry stretch won’t last long though. Additional showers are likely as we head into the end of the week.

All told, none of this rain will amount to a whole lot though. Rain totals generally stay under a half inch across North Alabama, with the highest rain totals in the region coming in Southern Mississippi, Southwest Alabama, and along the Northern Gulf Coast.

Thankfully, none of what we’re tracking right now looks like a big severe weather threat. We always keep our eye out for any “sneak attacks” this time of year, but for now things look fairly quiet. We’ll let you know if that changes.
