July 4, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Wednesday to you! We are watching a few storms develop in radar at this midday hour. This activity is scattered and drifting south. Look for storms to continue to pop up across central and west Alabama through this evening. If you have plans this evening for Independence Day, keep in mind lightning safety. If a storm moves into your area, go indoors until the storm moves on by or dies out. Storms will remain hit or miss, so not everyone will deal with rain this afternoon. Storms should remain in the 30 to 40% coverage. A few storms could grow to strong or severe limits, but I don’t expect major issues this afternoon. Plus, if it rains at your location, it won’t last long at all. These storms may last as long as an hour, but it’s very unlikely that storms last any longer than that.
If you have plans outdoors this afternoon or evening to outdoor events or cookouts, don’t let the few scattered storms change your plans. Many spots won’t get a drop. I know there are lots of firework events happening around of just after sunset; the risk of rain at any of these events is fairly low but not impossible. If a storm moves by your area, it may actually cool temperatures off a bit. If you don’t get a storm over your area or nearby, look for temperatures to reach the 98 to 100 degree range.
The risk of storms will continue each day through the weekend. Rain chances will continue in the 30 to 40% range. The best chance of storms will happen between noon and 9pm each day.
