Forecast Discussion: Saturday-Monday: It will be a very rainy weekend due to two upper level lows. The first upper level low will weaken and becoming an open wave on Saturday as it moves from the central Plains to the upper Mississippi River Valley. Another upper low will move eastward from the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles late Saturday and across Alabama on Sunday. An associated surface low with the second upper low will wrap moisture around on the backside to provide a small chance for rainfall through Monday morning. Clouds will then begin to decrease as Monday progresses as the disturbance exits the area. A good amount of rainfall will keep PM2.5 in the GREEN range through Monday. ML
