Midday Nowcast: Quiet Weather Pattern

| May 9, 2022 @ 11:14 am

MUNDANE, MAY WEATHER: An upper ridge is building in across Alabama and the Deep South this week, and it will keep our weather quiet with mostly sunny days and fair nights. Highs today will be in the low to 80s today, mid 80s tomorrow, and then in the upper 80s by Wednesday. Expect mid to upper 80s Thursday and Friday. Lows will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s. By the end of the week, moisture levels will increase slowly, allowing for a few isolated showers by Friday, but odds of any one spot getting wet will be only in the 10-20 percent range.

USA BRIEF: The major weather story on Monday will be the continued critical fire weather concerns in the Four Corners region with extreme threats in New Mexico. Also, the West will remain inclement and cool, heat builds in the southern Plains and Lower Mississippi Valley and some strong to severe thunderstorms are possible from Iowa into parts of Minnesota and Wisconsin.

WEEKEND WEATHER: We will mention some risk of widely scattered showers over the weekend, but nothing widespread or heavy. Otherwise, look for a partly sunny sky Saturday and Sunday with highs remaining in the mid to upper 80s. Chance of any one place seeing rain both days are around 20 percent, and mainly over the northern half of the state.

NEXT WEEK: The upper ridge is going nowhere anytime soon, so the pattern looks to remain dry with no prospects of widespread or beneficial rain. Much of next week looks fairly quiet with only a few isolated showers around from time to time. Highs will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s most of the week.
