Scattered Storms and Hot…Friday Afternoon Forecast Update – 5:45pm
July 13, 2012 Leave a comment
Good Friday afternoon to you! Scattered storms have developed this afternoon, as a disturbance moves from southeast to northwest across our area. While much of the day has been dry, that will change for some areas as we reach the afternoon and evening hours. The risk of rain is about 50% through 10pm tonight. The chance of rain will start to decrease tonight as temperatures cool down a bit.
You weekend forecast will include the risk of rain at times, but it will not be an all day type of rain or a deal where everyone gets a soaking. Expect a 50% chance of scattered, mainly afternoon storms on Saturday and a 30% chance of rain on Sunday. Skies will remain partly cloudy over the weekend, with the occasionally shower or storm in your area. If you have a trip planned to the river or lake, keep in mind lightning safety. While some spots stay rain free, lightning from a nearby thunderstorm can be dangerous. Highs will reach the lower to middle 90s over the weekend and early next week. Lows at night will fall into the lower 70s each night.
The risk of rain will remain at 30% Sunday through next Friday. It’s the deal where temperatures are hot and dewpoints are high. These afternoon storms will be possible each day, but many spots will remain rain free, while other spots get a soaking for 30 minutes or an hour. There are no big signs of a pattern change through next weekend.
I had a great time speaking to the kids at Friendship Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa. Look for video on WVUA news at 5, 6 and 10pm.
