Sunday Weather Briefing — Only a Few Isolated Showers Today; Dry & Mild for Memorial Day

| May 28, 2023 @ 7:00 am

The low that has been causing some issues for the Carolinas will continue to influence our weather today. We’ll have a small chance of a few isolated to scattered showers and storms across the west and southwestern parts of Central Alabama, with highs in the lower 80s. Memorial Day will be very nice, but for those who will be hitting the swimming pools or lakes, it might be a little cool for comfort. We’ll have a mix of sun and clouds, with highs in the upper 70s to the mid 80s.

We’ll start to see a warm-up begin on Tuesday, as we’ll have mainly sunny skies and highs in the mid 80s. It will be even warmer on Wednesday, as we’ll have mostly sunny skies and a small chance of an isolated afternoon shower or storm. Highs in the mid to upper 80s. An upper low looks to move across the Gulf Coast to end off the work week, which will bring an increase to our scattered shower and thunderstorm chances on Thursday. Highs in the mid 80s. Friday will be much of the same as the low hangs around and keeps the flow of moisture moving across Central Alabama. Scattered showers and storms will be possible, with highs in the lower to mid 80s. And at the end of the forecast period on Saturday… We’ll continue to have a chance of scattered showers and storms, but temperatures will be warmer. Highs in the mid to upper 80s.

A non-tropical low pressure system located about 60 miles east of Charleston, South Carolina, has weakened overnight. This low is expected to remain non-tropical while it moves generally northward and inland over the Carolinas today. Even though development into a subtropical or tropical cyclone is not expected, the system will continue to produce dangerous surf and rip current conditions along portions of the southeastern United States coast today. Locally heavy rainfall is also possible in portions of the Carolinas and Virginia during the next day or so.
* Formation chance through 48 hours…low…near 0 percent.
* Formation chance through 7 days…low…near 0 percent.
