The weekend has started off dry, but cloudy, as an approaching cold front will bring increased moisture in the air and also rain chances to end the weekend and start the work week. Tonight, clouds will linger with lows in the upper 50s and low 60s for Sunday morning. As the front approaches Sunday afternoon, we’ll see some isolated showers, but the best rain chances will come Sunday night. We’ll see afternoon highs near 80.
The front will be slow to move through, so more rain is expected into Monday morning, with the last of the rain moving out of East Alabama by Monday after lunch time. We could get a few isolated t-storms embedded in the line of rain, but most of this will be heavy downpours. Anywhere from an inch to two inches of rain from Sunday night to Monday afternoon. Temperatures will drop after the front moves out Monday afternoon and into the evening. Temps will hold steady in the upper 60s then drop into the mid 50s by Tuesday morning.
Cool temperatures will dominated midweek, with highs on Tuesday in the upper 60s and low and mid 60s by Wednesday afternoon. Temps will warm a bit by late in the week, but stay below average.
Rain chances increase by next Saturday before another big cool down moves in after.
