Monday Forecast

Good Monday morning everyone!

Meteorologist Ryan Michaels describing some patchy and dense fog for early morning commuters along I-10 and up into the Wiregrass.

It's a quiet start on radar for most of us with just a few spotty showers early on. There's also some patchy dense fog across the Wiregrass early on this morning that won't last much more than an hour or so after sunrise. Otherwise, it's another warm and humid start as most will get going in the mid 70s out the door this morning.

We'll have some rain chances returning to the forecast today, so grab the umbrellas. For most of us it won't be as active of a day like what we saw on Saturday. But a weak boundary is draped across the Panhandle basically oriented from southwest to northeast along Hwy231. Those of us east of Hwy231 will have a better chance at seeing some scattered showers and thunderstorms this morning. For everyone else, we'll have to wait for afternoon daytime heating and steering winds from the north to bring showers or rumbles of thunder out of Alabama and the Wiregrass and down to the coast by the end of the day or into the evening.

This low to mid level trough will remain in place through the next couple days helping to produce scattered showers or thunderstorms early on this week. While we won't see as much activity as we did at the end of last week, we'll still need to keep the umbrellas handy through today and tomorrow as around 1-2" of rain is expected for those who do pick up a couple thunderstorms. Most of the activity over the next couple days will be widely scattered, so not everyone will see 1-2" of rain. However, those who do pick up a storm may see some heavy bouts of rain at times.

This troughing pattern will begin to breakdown through midweek and rain chances will be much lower Wednesday through Friday.

Bottom Line...
For today, partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered showers or thunderstorms passing through. Highs today reach the mid 80s. Your 7 Day Forecast keeps us unsettled through Tuesday before rain chances dip to 20percent or lower for the rest of the week.
