A Nice Morning, But Increasing Clouds/Showers Later; Keeping an Eye on Monday Night Storm Potential

| January 24, 2021 @ 10:55 am

The day has been pretty nice across much of North and Central Alabama, with a good supply of sunshine in most locations, except over the western portions of the area. Clouds will continue to increase from the west through the day, so enjoy the sunshine while you have it.

High temperatures will look like this by mid-afternoon:

A few showers will start to appear this afternoon over western sections and rain will increase in areas mainly northwest of I-59 overnight. Here is the HRRR radar depiction for 9:15 p.m. tonight.

Tonight should be mostly cloudy and mild areawide with lows in the 50s.

Monday will dawn cloudy and breezy. As we go through the day it will be windy and warm, with high temperatures approaching 70 degrees in most locations, including upper 60s up north, and lower 70s over South Central Alabama in places like Demopolis, Selma, and Montgomery. There could be a few on and on showers

Showers and storms will push into Alabama Monday evening, especially after 9 p.m. COnditions will be favorable for severe weather, but we may be lacking in deep convection, so with no strong storms, the threat may not materialize. But if stronger storms are able to form, they would be capable of producing severe weather, including tornadoes, so stay tuned to later forecast updates in case things change.

The rain will move out early Tuesday, but showers will return late Tuesday night and much of Wednesday. They could be some thunder early Wednesday, but strong storms aren’t going to happen.

We stay mild through Wednesday, with colder conditions for Thursday, but fairly seasonal weather for Friday and Saturday.
