Midday Nowcast: A Soggy Tuesday

| May 23, 2023 @ 10:31 am

Little change in the forecast today as an upper-level low continues to move slowly through the Deep South. Widespread rain has been ongoing all morning across North/Central Alabama, and this will continue through the afternoon, before gradually winding down through the evening and overnight hours as the low pulls away. Temperatures will struggle to reach the 70s today due to the clouds and rain. As the rain ends, drier air will begin to filter into the state and we should lows in the 50s overnight.

VERY NICE LATE MAY WX: Tomorrow through Friday, we are forecasting rain-free weather with a mostly sunny sky and low humidity. Afternoon highs will be in the 80s, while nights will feature lows in the 50s and 60s. Enjoy, because these temperatures are below average for this time of year and is likely the last time we will see 50s until the fall.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: The great weather continues for the long weekend; it will be mainly dry, but we will mention the chance of a few isolated showers all three days, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. Rain chances will be in around 20% these days. Expect a mostly sunny sky with highs in the 80s.

NEXT WEEK: The week looks fairly quiet with no major weather systems impacting the Deep South. There will be a few days with the usual risk of widely scattered afternoon/evening showers or storms, however. Heat levels begin to rise, and by the end of the week afternoon highs will be close to 90°. The transition from May to June, usually features those increasing humidity levels, meaning air you can wear.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet in the Atlantic basin and no tropical cyclone development is expected over the next week. The official start of hurricane season is next week on June 1st.
