Tuesday afternoon, September 16, 2014
Forecaster: Ryan Stinnett

LINGERING SHOWERS: Frontal boundary continues to slowly sink south across the state, and this morning we continued to see showers in many areas. Through the morning, the showers were pushing towards the southeast and early this afternoon, most of these were south of the Interstate 20 corridor. Through the rest of today, we will be looking for the sky to begin to slowly clear and improving weather. The air will begin to dry out and temps will be dropping overnight into the 60s.

DRIER AND COOLER: Now for the rest of the week, terrific weather is ahead, expect mostly sunny days with fair and pleasant nights. Temps will be cooler as highs will be in the mid 80s each afternoon, and overnight lows will be in the lower 60s and yes, even some 50s are possible a few mornings as far south as the I-20 corridor. Not looking for any rain chances for the next several days, but model data continues to suggest we may see a back door cold front do to cold air damming move in from the east Friday. This could perhaps allow for some low clouds toward over east Alabama, and perhaps a stray shower, but I think we stay dry, and most of will stay under a mostly sunny sky.
