Temperatures will be falling too, and as we head into the overnight hours many locations in South/Central Alabama will be in lower and mid-50s.
FOR SUNDAY: High pressure will be in control of our weather and at the surface cooler and drier air will continue to flow into the state. Tomorrow will be cooler and afternoon highs will be about ten degrees cooler than today. That means upper 60s and lower 70s for many of us. We will see a few more clouds, but overall, a very nice and almost cool May Sunday for us all.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Monday and Tuesday we begin the process of bringing moisture back into the Southeast as the surface high moves off the Southeast Coast bringing the surface flow back around to the south. It looks as though we will stay dry as we start the week with a somewhat benign upper flow that gradually becomes southwesterly by mid week adding the element of additional moisture aloft. For the latter half of the week, our upper air pattern will remain in a west to southwest flow as a deep trough takes up residence along the West Coast. Weak short waves will move eastward in this upper flow, and with a weak frontal boundary across the Southeast, we will have a moisture laden atmosphere that should result in daily chances for showers and storms driven mainly by diurnal heating but also focused with those transient weak short waves. Severe weather not expected, but with the summer-like air mass over the state, it is very difficult to pinpoint the exact time when rain will be a threat. From Wednesday and into the weekend, expect daily chances of showers and storms. Temperatures will once again get back to seasonal values with highs around 80s and lows in the 60s.
