Monday, July 1 Forecast Discussion

Just a few clouds passing through the area this afternoon as our upper level low continues to move closer from the north. This area of low pressure is going to hang around through the rest of the week and have major impacts on our weather.

Tomorrow will remain dry as the low centers itself along the Mississippi River, but winds will start to turn more from the south and increase humidity back to the area. This humidity will lead to showers and storms Wednesday afternoon as the jet stream provides some added lift for storms to form. Right now, it looks like the best chance to see rain will be our West Alabama counties, but all of us could see some showers and storms.

Things worsen starting on Independence Day as the low moves further to our west, placing us directly in the most moisture and also best lift. This will cause numerous showers and storms on Thursday with plentiful rains on Friday and Saturday as moisture streams northward from the Gulf of Mexico.

Things will start to get better Sunday as the low breaks down and starts moving to our north. This will allow the moisture transport from the Gulf to weaken and lessen rain chances. As we move into next Monday, high pressure will start building in from our east and start to limit any potential rain chances and start warming us back up.

Highs for the next week should stay in the 80s thanks to cool air to start the week and then clouds and rain to finish it. Lows will remain mostly in the 60s until the weekend.
