Near Term - Now Through Tuesday
A shortwave trough from the northern plains into the central plains will move eastward through the near term. An associated surface cold front will advance eastward ahead of the trough and into the area by late Monday morning/early Monday afternoon. Ahead of this approaching system, a moist southerly flow will bring increasing deep layer moisture into the area. Clouds will also continue to increase as deep layer moisture continues to increase over the area. Dry conditions will remain through tonight, with patchy inland fog developing tonight over a small portion of south central AL. A Dense Fog Advisory is not expected at this time due to the patchy nature of the fog and increasing cloud cover inhibiting radiational cooling.

Rain chances will increase through the day on Monday as a line of showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop along and ahead of the front and move southeast into our southeast MS and southwest AL counties during the late morning and early afternoon. This line will then continue to move southeastward across the remainder of CWA by late Monday afternoon. Storm Prediction Center has outlined a Marginal severe risk over much of our area, but the best potential of an isolated strong to marginally severe storm will probably be most favored along and northwest of I-65 during the early to mid afternoon hours prior to the gradual weakening of the line. Rainfall amounts will not be overly heavy, but there could be a few spots that receive between 0.5 to 1 inch of rain within the heaviest convection along and northwest of I-65.

The front will likely stall somewhere near the coast or just offshore Monday night into Tuesday morning before moving back to the north as warm front Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday evening. Shortwaves moving through the west to southwest flow aloft will maintain the risk of scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms through the day on Tuesday as the front returns northward.

Lows tonight range from the upper 50s to low 60s. Lows will be much cooler Monday night, in the low to mid 40s northwest of I-65 to low to mid 50s southeast of I-65. Highs on Monday will be in the low to mid 70s. Highs on Tuesday will be cooler, in the mid and upper 50s northwest of I-65 to low to mid 60s southeast of I-65. /13
