Tuesday, April 30 Forecast Discussion

An upper level low lifting north out of the Gulf of Mexico has spawned some showers and storms along the Gulf Coast and the outer edges of the showers have made it into Jones and Wayne Counties. Rain showers and storms will continue to lift northward overnight, and while no severe weather is expected, showers will be around overnight for locations south of I-20.

Rain looks to arrive during the day tomorrow for all of us. Rain will work in from south to north through the day. A storm or two is possible, but this looks to be mostly a rain event. Rain will taper off some for Thursday, but showers will still be around. Friday looks to be the rainiest day of the next seven as a strong upper level low will be approaching from the Plains. It will send cooler air in our direction and also turn rich, Gulf moisture in our area into decent rainfall. Rain looks to taper off through Saturday morning and afternoon as the cold front associated with the upper level low works through into Central Alabama.

We should start drying out Sunday and warming up as the upper level low begins to move northward and away from us. Temperatures will start climbing back into the lower and middle 70s after they bottom out in the mid to upper 60s during Friday and Saturday.
