Watching the Tropics… Local Forecast Head… Thursday PM Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (6).jpg

Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather started off chilly this morning, with a nice afternoon. Temperatures will turn chilly again tonight, with lows in the middle 40s.

Friday will feature a nice day, after the chilly start. We’ll approach the lower 70s during the afternoon, with some high cirrus clouds moving in. I don’t expect any issues with rain for the local high school football games.

Clouds increase Friday night and into the day on Saturday. As a tropical storm moves into the Florida Panhandle early Saturday morning, we can expect clouds and some showers on Saturday. The tropical system will move to the northeast very fast, so any showers and clouds with the tropical system will be short lived. By Saturday night, the risk of showers will begin to move out of our area. It will be a close call for the Bama game Saturday night at Bryant-Denny. Most likely, showers will be gone by kickoff, but if you have outdoor plans during the afternoon, keep an umbrella handy just incase. The best chance of more widespread rain will occur south of I-20 and east of I-65.

A cold front will push through the area late on Monday, and this may bring a risk of strong storms to the area. Severe weather appears unlikely at this time, but we’ll watch trends carefully.

Cold Tonight… Some Weekend Rain Possible… Wednesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (5).jpg

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather started out very gloomy this morning, but as dry air took over this afternoon, skies became partly cloudy. Expect a mostly clear sky tonight, with temperatures dropping into the 40s!

Skies remain clear on Thursday and Friday. We’ll hold in the 60s on Thursday, then rise into the low 70s on Friday. Expect middle 40s at sunrise Friday morning.

Clouds increase over the weekend, with the chance of showers arriving on Saturday. A tropical low will move into the southeast over the weekend, which could add to the rain risk. Model data has shifted a bit east on the past few runs, so this may be a limited rain impact to our area, with the heavier rain being to our southeast. We’ll watch trends and make changes as needed.

A cold front will push through the area on Monday, and this may bring a risk of strong storms to the area. Severe weather appears unlikely at this time.

Rain Now… Cooler Air Arrives… Maybe More Weekend Rain… Tuesday PM Forecast Update

Sevenday_640 (7).jpg

Good Tuesday afternoon! Much of Alabama continues to deal with periods of rain today, with the heavier rain being to the south of I-20. Expect periods of rain tonight, with temperatures holding in the 60s. Rain totals will vary across the area, with some getting over 1″ south of I-20, but less that 1/2″ to the north of I-20.

A cold front will pass through Alabama early on Wednesday. Expect early morning showers, with perhaps some midday sun mixing out. Highs will approach the upper 60s to lower 70s on Wednesday, then fall into the lower 40s Wednesday night.

Skeis remain clear on Thursday and Friday. We’ll hold in the 60s on Thursday, then rise into the mid 70s on Friday.

Clouds increase over the weekend, with the chance of showers arriving late on Saturday or on Sunday. A tropical low could move into the southeast over the weekend, which could add to the rain risk. We’ll watch that carefully, but I do not expect a hurricane to develop out of this…

Warmer Days Return Tomorrow. Sunday forecast update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngHappy Sunday everyone. It was a cool dreary day across the area today with highs in the 60s and some nuisance showers trying to ruin activities outside. Fortunately most of the rain was lighter and events like the Out of the Darkness Walk and the Tuscaloosa Witches Ride could still happen.

Tonight will be cooler as well with lows in the low 50s with an isolate shower possible before around 10pm. Tomorrow we will begin to warm back up around seasonal to the mid to upper 70s with partly sunny skies.

Tomorrow night rain will begin here in Alabama and you can expect a washout Monday late night into Tuesday evening as showers and storms move in. Nothing severe is expected right now, just some rumbles of thunder and some lightning possible. But we are looking at 1-3 inches here in central Alabama with most of the rain at or just south of I-20.

Wednesday a front will move in and dry us out for your Wednesday evening until Saturday.

Rain Returns to the forecast with cool Temps. Saturday forecast update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOW.png

Well it was a great afternoon to take the game day plans outside and maybe throw the ball around outdoors. Highs a lot cooler today in the upper 60s low 70s with mostly cloudy skies.

Tonight we will cool back into the low 50s with an isolated shower possible late in the night but most will stay dry. Tomorrow going to be another cool day in the mid to upper 60s with mostly cloudy skies. Really a carbon copy of today but with a little more rain possible. Time and location of the showers is still variable. But no matter where it does occur it won’t last long and there won’t be much. All across central Alabama will see less than a tenth of an inch.

Monday will be a little warmer in the upper 70s with a mostly dry afternoon but rain chances increasing as you move into the evening ahead of our main rain event on Tuesday.

Tuesday will a washout of an afternoon with showers and some strong thunderstorms possible. The severe chance is still unknown but we will keep you up to date on the latest here at WVUA.

After Tuesday we will have yet another front move through drying us out and keeping Thursday and Friday more mild.
