Bob Jeswald 7:23 PM Update:
We are now looking at the squall line headed into central Alabama. The thunderstorm activity remains across southwest Alabama and some of this energy will lift across the region overnight well ahead of the cold front.
The cold front is slow to move out of the region and this is why the morning will have a better shot of a few showers and storms before it tapers off Thursday afternoon.
Friday late we can expect a shortwave to lift across the southern portion of the viewing area south and east of a line from Montgomery, Phenix City, and towards Macon southward.
Saturday it’ll be hit and miss light showers early and should not be a game-changer for The Iron Bowl.
Sunday afternoon expect a strong surface low lifting across the region with heavy rainfall before it exits…This same system will pull a considerable amount of cold air behind it for Monday and Tuesday morning. Windy with wind chills in the lower 20s for Tuesday morning. The wrap-around moisture may even show a little snow flurry or two (NO ACCUMULATIONS).
Sunny and cool after all this passes next week.
