Sunny With a Little Spring in the Air in Spots, Clouds Hanging Tough in Others

| January 12, 2020 @ 11:48 am

After a stormy Saturday marred by tragedy and lots of downed trees, our Sunday is a mixed story of sun and clouds. Clouds have been hard to shake in areas northwest of I-59, while to the Southeast, there is a feel of spring in the air.

Temperatures are in the 50s north of I-20, and climbing through the 60s to the south. Highs will be in the upper 50s across the Tennessee Valley and range from 60F in Cullman to 69F in Montgomery.

Our frontal system is lying across the Florida Panhandle late this morning, poised to move back north as a warm front starting tonight. Showers will begin to show up tonight along and south of I-59. Rainfall amounts will be generous overnight where the heavier showers set up, likely from Chatom to Montgomery to Auburn.

The rain will come north on Monday, overspreading the northern half of the state. Monday amounts will range from one quarter to two inches, with the heavier amounts expected in a band from Lamar and Marion Counties east-northeastward through the Tennessee Valley.

Expect more rain Tuesday, Wednesday and even into Thursday as Alabama serves as the battleground region for the opposing airmasses.
