Monday morning starts with thick fog and temperatures around 60°. The fog will thin as the morning goes on but we won’t see much sun this afternoon; highs will still be in the low and middle 70s. A cold front will spark showers and thunderstorms later today as it moves in from the west. The northwest corner and the southeast corner of the region have the best chance at seeing rain and thunder during the daylight hours. The cold front will be responsible for the rain action from Grady county west and northwest into southeast Alabama. The severe threat here looks low as much of the spin and energy needed to support storms will move well north of the area. Thunderstorms are also likely to develop later today over the eastern Gulf of Mexico and impact the southeastern big bend; east and south of Jefferson county. These storms will have the chance to pack a stronger punch with gusty winds and frequent lightning but the severe threat is very limited. Timing of both areas of rain will be after 2pm this afternoon with any thunderstorms ending after 7pm.Overnight, with the cold front sagging right over us, clouds will remain thick but rain will be light and isolated. Tuesday and Wednesday will be cool and cloudy days with scattered showers off and on. Highs both days won’t get out of the 60s with overnight lows in the 50s. The front won’t kick east of the area until Wednesday night when we get dry and cold. Lows by Thursday morning will flirt with the upper 30s with more sun Thursday afternoon. The extended forecast into the weekend shows another disturbance giving us a chance at rain Saturday and Sunday. Stay tuned!
Be safe and have a great Monday!
