A warm Sunday in Alabama: the Alabama Weather Blog


It’s a warm Sunday across Alabama. Skies will generally be mostly sunny with temperatures in the upper 70s to lower 80s.

Showers and thunderstorms will move across eastern Texas, southeastern Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. They are associated with an upper level wave pushing eastward.

The southern part of the precipitation shield associated with the wave will wither during the afternoon as it reaches the Alabama-Mississippi border. But there will be modest instability, which could cause some thunderstorms to increase again. There is not enough instability to become severe, but some will experience lightning, heavy rain and gusty winds.

Precipitation should leave the state during the early morning hours.

More showers and some thunderstorms will move into Northwest Alabama after 2 a.m., but they should leave Tennessee before sunrise.

Monday will remain mainly dry, with the exception of a few showers developing during the day and possibly lasting into the evening. But they will be very isolated and short-lived. Highs will be in the 80s.

An unsettled pattern will impact Alabama the rest of the week. There will be slightly better rain chances on Tuesday, with less on Wednesday.

Thursday will be an interesting day with showers and storms becoming likely. Some of those storms can be intense.

An unusually strong cold front will pass through on Friday, setting the stage for an absolutely beautiful Saturday and Sunday. The rain and storms return the following Monday.
