Tracking several days of rain & storm chances as the weather pattern becomes unsettled
First Alert: Gusty winds, heavy rain, hail and frequent lightning are possible in any storm we see this weekend and during the week ahead.
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Showers and storms remain in the forecast through the overnight period tonight. Lows will hover in the 60s and 70s.
A stalled boundary and a forming low pressure system off the Gulf of Mexico will be the culprit for the continuing rain chances for the start of the week.
We are tracking more rain and storms in the forecast for Monday. Heavy rain, flash flooding, gusty winds, hail and frequent lightning will again be possible within storm cells. Clouds will stick around and high temperatures will warm into the 70s and 80s. Showers will be possible overnight Monday with lows in the 60s.
Tuesday is election day in Alabama. Highs will warm into the middle 80s with partly to mostly cloudy skies. A few showers and storms are possible, during the day. Lows will be in the 60s under mostly cloudy conditions and a chance for a rain or storm.
A low pressure system and associated cold front will then swing into the state of Alabama by midweek. Showers and storms are expected Wednesday into Thursday due to this system. A few storms could be on the strong to severe side as the cold front passes across the region. Highs will remain in the 80s under partly sunny skies. Lows will hover in the 60s with rain and storms lingering.
More stormy weather is expected for Thursday. Highs will warm into the lower 80s under partly to mostly cloudy skies. Lows will remain in the 60s with a few showers possible.
Once the cold front moves east, rain chances will move out with it. This means Friday is looking drier under mostly to partly sunny skies. Afternoon highs by the end of the week will remain in the lower 80s and overnight lows will hover in the 50s and 60s.
The start to Memorial Day weekend is looking dry. Saturday and Sunday look to feature plenty of sunshine with afternoon highs back into the upper 80s to lower 90s. Overnight lows will hover in the 60s. There is a very low chance for a shower, as of right now, for Sunday, but most look to remain dry.
