July 12, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Thursday evening to you! We had a nice rain event across much of west and central Alabama this morning and into the afternoon hours. While much of the area is in a break at this 6pm hour, there are more showers and storms moving our way. Skies remain mostly cloudy to cloudy across all of Alabama, which is keeping temperatures a little cooler.
Our next area of rain and storms is set to move into the area between now and sunset this evening. Storms are increasing in coverage across east Mississippi and southwest Alabama now, and the storms are moving northeast at 20 to 30 mph. The old stationary front, a deep layer of tropical moisture and a weak area of low pressure moving into the area will continue to bring the good rain chances on and off tonight through Friday. The risk of rain starts to go down hill on Saturday and Sunday, as the front washes out and the upper air support moves well out of the area. With rich tropical moisture remains over the southeast, the risk of scattered storms will continue through the weekend and early next week. The best chance of rain over the weekend will happen during the afternoon and evening hours. Also, expect a little more sun over the weekend. Highs will reach the lower to middle 90s on Saturday through Thursday of next week. Look for lows to remain in the lower to middle 70s.
I had a great time speaking to the kids at Elizabeth Child Development Center in Tuscaloosa this morning. Look for video on WVUA-TV news at 5, 6, and 10pm.
