Today the shower threat will spill into West Alabama. A disturbance will tease us with a tiny shower threat. The main shower threat will elude most of us. I have the rain chance under 20% for most of us. West Alabama will see a higher threat. After today, the rain chance vanishes for several days.

Upper Level high pressure will continue to expand and grow stronger. That will spell a prolonged period of hotter temperatures, We’ll be 90-92 Friday and through the weekend. And, we’ll be in the mid 90’s Monday through much of next week.

The calendar says May, but the forecast looks more like summer.

A sample of the heat the region is facing by Sunday and Monday and beyond.

What a contrast on this map! Prolific Flooding Rainfall not to far west of our state. Yet for much of Alabama and the southeast the rain prospects for the next few days: LITTLE OR NONE.
