Central AL Forecast: Widespread rain back Monday


MONDAY: Waves of rain all day.  Turning heavy in the evening. As a warm front lifts through the MS Valley, a moist airmass will move in from the South and produce widespread rain.  The rain will be around on and off all day–umbrellas, jackets, boots, grab it all!

Expect anywhere from 1-2” in total with this next batch of rain, with some locally higher amounts.  This could be a problem in places that are prone to flooding, considering how exceptionally wet this February has been.  We’re already up to 12” of rain in Birmingham for February!  Lows in the mid 40s, highs Monday in the low 60s.

TUESDAY: A few lingering showers in the morning, dry afternoon.  Isolated showers to our southeast on Monday. But, most locations will see the rain clear by the morning hours. Partly cloudy with mild temperatures, highs in the mid to possibly even upper 60s.  That’s the warmest we’ll hit all week long!

REST OF THE WEEK: Temperatures gradually dropping, staying mainly dry.  After Wednesday, rain chances fade away as a deep, upper-level trough dips into the South.  That means colder, drier air for the rest of the week and into next weekend. Winter’s not done! We are going to be back in the 20s by Thursday morning.
