This morning…a band of showers, some of which are heavy, continues to move across Central Tennessee into Northwest Alabama and Eastern Mississippi. This band is associated with an upper level disturbance that is now moving toward the northeast across portions of the Mid-south. Since most of the forcing is moving north of Alabama, we should begin to see the rain slack up some on the southern end of the surface boundary. Mid level dry air is already working into western Mississippi and this should allow us to dry out and maybe erode most of the cloud deck later today. Temperatures across the region range from the mid to upper 40’s in the northwest to the mid 50’s across southern sections. The cloud deck assisted in keeping things a touch warmer to the south.
Expect the high pressure dome at the surface of around 1024mb to slide into the region and give us partly cloudy to partially clear skies later tonight. We should cool down into the 40’s pretty easily as we radiate out with less clouds than Sunday night.
We will discuss the chances of severe weather out in the Plains states into the Midwest in an upcoming post later this afternoon and also talk about the chances of us being on location for the upcoming events. Stay tuned…
Have a great Monday!
