Evening Showers then a Chilly Monday Morning
Showers have been fairly scattered through the day, giving several communities light to moderate rain while others have managed to stay dry. Currently, the showers are most abundant west of 65; meanwhile a widespread batch of tropical moisture lifts northeast out of central Alabama.
A cold-front is already moving into the Shoals area, dropping temperatures into the 60’s and bringing drier air from northwest to southeast. This front and the batch of rain to our south will provide a continued chance for showers and occasional storms through the evening. More development is possible as the front and the tropical moisture interact. Just about every community in the Valley will see a decent chance for at least brief light rain, but a heavy and long-lasting downpour is not guaranteed.
The dry air behind the front will bring an end to the rain from west to east through the evening, with the last of the showers exiting Northeast Alabama within a few hours of midnight. Clearing skies and a cooler airmass will mean a dramatic cool-down for Monday morning. Temperatures in the 40’s Valley-wide are likely.
After the chilly start, Monday will shape up very nicely. Afternoon temperatures will only reach into the upper 60’s and lower 70’s with sunny skies and a somewhat brisk northeast wind of 10-15mph.
