Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Birmingham AL 956 PM CDT Mon Jun 24 2024


(Tonight through Wednesday)
Issued at 942 PM CDT MON JUN 24 2024

A cold front was located just north of Montgomery/Demopolis/Auburn this evening. Drier surface air was filtering in behind the front while dew points were well into the 70s south. Expect the drier air to slowly continue southward through much of the area by daybreak. Due to the dry air, overnight lows will drop into the upper 50s in the cooler spots east while near 70 far southwest.


Previous short-term discussion: (This afternoon through Tuesday)

Most areas south of Birmingham received beneficial rain early this morning, some more than others. Radar estimates show pockets of higher amounts up to 1 to 2 inches while some areas received a few hundredths. The cold front is draped east to west just south of Birmingham, and the remnant showers are now drifting south of the forecast area. Temperatures have some catching up to do across our south where readings are currently still in the 80s. However this is where the highest moisture content is located and dewpoints are in the mid 70s, so heat indices are already near 100F. Drier air is quickly filtering in from the north, so there will be some mixing again this afternoon, but probably not as much in our south where some areas could experience heat indices up to 105F. It will be hot across the board with highs in the mid to upper 90s.

Ridging retakes control tomorrow with northerly flow continuing to supply dry air to the region. Unfortunately, it looks to be one of the hottest days so far, and there`s a chance we could see some 100 degree readings out there. Dewpoints ranging from the mid 50s to mid 60s should prevent us from reaching Heat Advisory criteria.


(Tuesday night through next Sunday)
Issued at 342 PM CDT MON JUN 24 2024

No significant changes in forecast trends this afternoon for the extended. It might take longer for convection to develop Wednesday, as the initial focus is to our west. Convective temps will run in the mid to upper 90s, and will likely need outflow boundaries to help ignite convection locally. There is around 25kts of bulk shear during the afternoon across portions of the west. This would help sustain storms, and increase the potential for wind gusts, if storms can develop.

We flirt with heat indices around 103-105F each afternoon this week. However, guidance continues to show upper level ridging building back into the area for the weekend with moisture remaining elevated. Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 90s while PWs remain around 2 inches and dewpoints in the low to mid 70s. This would send heat indices into the 105-110F range for most of the area.


Previous long-term discussion: (Tuesday night through next Sunday)
Issued at 244 AM CDT MON JUN 24 2024

Key messages:

- Rain chances have decreased somewhat and high temperatures have increased on Wednesday, but scattered showers and storms are still expected with some strong storms with gusty winds possible especially in West Alabama.

- Heat indices at or above 105 degrees will be possible Friday through the weekend.

Height falls will take place on Wednesday as one shortwave moves through the Great Lakes and a weaker shortwave in northwest flow aloft moves through the Lower Mississippi Valley. Due to the stubborn dry air mass over our area, the higher rain/MCS chances continue to trend westward, even west of our forecast area. Still, given the shortwave and height falls and increasing moisture over West Alabama, at least scattered showers and storms are expected with higher coverage possible if any cold pools can organize.
Temperatures have trended upward as well, but with the lower dew points expect heat indices to remain below 105 on Wednesday. Shear and mid-level lapse rates will be weak, with instability dropping off as you go eastward into the dry air. But given the dry air aloft and hot temperatures at the surface, some strong storms with gusty winds/microbursts will be possible if the storms can get going and cold pools can form. Will monitor the mesoscale trends to see if any isolated severe storms can develop.

A positively tilted trough will extend from the Carolinas southwestward to the Florida Panhandle on Thursday, while ridging begins to build back to the east across the Lower Mississippi Valley. Dry air aloft will be advecting in from the northwest as a surface frontal boundary washes out. Isolated to scattered showers and storms will be possible especially in our southeast counties closer to the better moisture. Highs will "only" be in the middle 90s in most locations. Strong subtropical ridging builds back in over the Southeast Friday through the weekend. This will result in hot temperatures continuing. Most areas remain dry Friday, but PWATs increase over the weekend with weak low-level southerly flow. This means that unlike the previous ridge there will be some potential for diurnal convection which could impact highs in some spots. Also, this will result in higher dew points meaning there will be increasing chances for heat indices at or above 105 degrees.

VFR conditions through the period. Clouds will be at a minimum the next 24 hours as drier air filters in. Winds will generally be light northerly throughout.



Isolated showers end this evening, with rainfree conditions expected through Tuesday night, as a front settles to our south.
Drier air arrives behind the front, with minimum RH values of 24-35 percent Tuesday. Overnight RH values recover to above 70 percent tonight and Tuesday night. Better rain chances arrive Wednesday and Thursday. 20ft winds will become northerly on Tuesday and westerly Wednesday, at less than 8 mph.
