SUNDAY: Any isolated storm still left this evening will fizzle out after sunset and we will remain partly cloudy overnight with cloud cover increasing throughout the day. We will have a weak area of upper low pressure move through the Southeast. This is why our rain chances will be on the rise through the day. Scattered storms will be possible throughout the day, especially in the afternoon. With far greater coverage of rain and more cloud cover, out temperatures will be slightly cooler and in the upper 80s, low 90s.
MONDAY/NEXT WEEK: The upper low will stall out to our south and east. This is where the greatest chance for rain and storms will be each day through mid week. For Central Alabama, we are going to turn much drier with our winds high up in the atmosphere out of the north, leading to drier air. Our temperatures will be very warm, with mostly sunny skies through mid week. We will start our mornings in the low to mid 70s and afternoon highs will climb to the low to mid 90s! Hot and humid will definitely be the main weather story through much of the week. Only isolated storms are in the forecast. Until we hit the end of the week, this is when rain and storm coverage will start to increase into next weekend.
TROPICS: Speaking of the upper low, there is a slight potential that once this trough is over the Gulf of Mexico, we could see this develop into a more organized tropical system. The National Hurricane Center has a 20 percent chance of development over the next five days. So, stay tuned to the CBS 42 Storm Team as we watch this next week.
