Friday, May 3 Forecast Discussion

Rain showers are slowly advancing eastward with the cold front that is moving across Mississippi. All of us should see showers by the evening hours, and the bulk of the rain will be east of West Alabama by 9am Saturday. Behind this front, much cooler air will work in. Temperatures overnight will dangerously flirt with our all-time May record low of 38 degrees, but I think cloud cover stays around long enough to keep the record safe, but barely. Most of Saturday looks dry but it will be chilly with highs only in the mid to upper 60s.

Sunday and Monday will see a few isolated to scattered showers as our upper level low exits, and temperatures will be held down on Sunday as the coldest air with this system settles over us. Monday begins our rebound and skies will start to clear on Tuesday. We return to the 80s by Wednesday and make a push into the upper 80s to close out the week before our next rain chance arrives...probably next weekend.

With all the rain, flooding remains a major concern along area creeks and rivers, so pay careful attention to their levels if you live near one through the weekend.
