Just so you know, the weather today will be cloudy but not as cold and wet as yesterday. The misty precipitation seems to have cleared for now, but there will be more wet weather next week, especially on Tuesday and Wednesday. A system coming from the Gulf will bring some moisture, but the amount of rainfall will vary.
Some areas may get lucky and see more rain than others. Currently, it is cloudy and overcast, with a temperature of 53 degrees in the Magic City.
There is hardly any rain on the radar, just some patchy precipitation moving east. The Birmingham metro area will likely remain quiet and mostly cloudy today, with little rain expected. High-pressure systems have dominated the forecast in recent weeks, keeping things dry. However, on Monday, a low-pressure system will move in from the Gulf, intensifying on Tuesday and Wednesday.
This system will likely bring more moisture and showers, particularly to the Gulf Coast. There is still a chance for some showers to reach central Alabama and even some areas further north. The rainfall amounts will vary, with the coast having the best chance of rain.
Despite the cloudy skies, we remain hopeful for some healthy showers next week. The forecasted rainfall through Thursday shows more rain towards the south, benefiting areas like Montgomery, Camden, Monroeville, and Greenville. However, central Alabama is still looking slim in terms of rainfall.
It would be a miracle if we get an inch of rain before Thursday. Nevertheless, the latter part of November seems to have a wetter pattern, which is exciting and something to look forward to.
However, due to the dry conditions, it will take time for moisture to build back into the soil and air before we see significant rainfall. Today will mainly be cloudy, but dry, with temperatures near 60 degrees..
