After an active Sunday afternoon and evening, we are happy to report that the showers and storms from yesterday have left our area. The National Weather Service office in Birmingham will be sending out a few storm survey teams this morning; they will be going to both Montgomery and Barbour Counties to evaluate any damage from the tornado warned storms that happened Sunday afternoon. We will pass on any information they may find.
A surface low is sitting over Western Tennessee, and the associated front that was responsible for our busy weather yesterday has now moved just to the east of Alabama. We are beginning the process of drying out as the main swath of heavier rain has now pushed into Georgia.
Monday: As this front continues to move eastward, we will start to see some sunshine return to our forecast. Even with some clearing, we are still keeping things on the cloudier side. A few scattered pockets of rain are still possible throughout the afternoon and temperatures today are warming into the 70s.
Wraparound low-level moisture and cool air aloft will continue to promote scattered light showers across the area not only today but for the next few days; otherwise, clouds will help keep temperatures in the upper 60s to low 70s each day through the rest of the workweek.
Our 7 day features seasonable conditions for this time of year... normal highs are in the upper 70s with lows in the 50s, and that's pretty close to what we see over the next couple of days.
Weekend Preview: As of right now, the forecast looks to clear a bit ahead of next weekend! Most models suggest we see highs in the 70s and spectacular conditions for any of your outdoor plans.
