Monday, May 6 Forecast Discussion

Clouds have held tough today as the last pieces of energy around our area of low pressure continue to rotate through. Each piece of energy has touched off showers across the area, with the greatest coverage of rain in our West Alabama counties. We will see the rain come to an end tonight as the upper level low departs, and clouds will start to thin out as we work through our Tuesday.

Plenty of sunshine will be with us Wednesday and Thursday as we climb back into the 80s, but the dry weather won't last long as a new area of low pressure will start impacting us Friday afternoon and be with us into Saturday. This system could bring some storms Friday afternoon, depending on the timing which is still being worked out, and rain then lingers through Saturday and will taper off on Sunday as high pressure returns to the area and clears our skies out.

Temperatures look to remain in the 80s until Sunday when our next cold front clears the area and drops temperatures into the upper 70s for Sunday and Monday.

The rainfall this weekend will be monitored very closely as we still currently have rivers above flood stage with others running higher than normal. Any additional rainfall will drain quickly into our waterways as the ground is extremely saturated, so we are not out of the woods yet in terms of flooding problems.
