Dry and Pleasant Monday. Sunday Forecast Update 7:45pm. #wxal @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Sunday evening! We saw partly to mostly cloudy skies today. A few in our northern most counties like Winston, Marion, Walker, Fayette, and Cullman saw some very isolated sprinkles. Most precipitation that fell never actually made it to the ground before is was evaporated. That line is now just delivering extra clouds for many. Right behind it, very dry air follows. That airmass will clear skies overnight tonight, and make for pleasant feeling lows tonight. Monday will be mostly sunny and feel amazing, despite temperatures being in the mid to upper 80’s.

Tuesday and Wednesday should remain mostly dry. The slim rain chance is just for the ever so slight opportunity for an isolated shower. Humidity will be back on the rise each day, as well as our actual temperature. Thursday and Friday, the air over the southeast will contain enough moisture to feed afternoon showers and storms each day.

The trend of afternoon storms will carry from the work week, into next weekend. By this point of the forecast, conditions will be very muggy.

Dry Weather Finally Arrives! Saturday Forecast Update, 7:40p.m. #wxal @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM

Good Saturday evening! We saw much drier weather today than the past several days. The rain we did have was a single band of storms that were traveling ahead of the trough that helped push Cindy’s remnants out of the state. Behind that line is dry, less humid air…and a streak of fully dry weather. Tonight, skies turn mostly to partly cloudy the remainder of the evening. Sunday will be a mix of clouds and sun; unfortunately no fully clear skies just yet. Those will hold off until the work week.

Next work week for Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday skies will be mostly sunny before clouds start to slowly increase later Wednesday. Conditions will be less humid but temperatures will be increasing gradually. Thursday and Friday start to turn humid as we see Gulf moisture move into the area. That airmass will also help feed showers and storms to develop in the afternoons.

Next weekend will unfortunately hold scattered showers and storms in the afternoons with muggy conditions. I guess we just can not fully beat the rain…

The leading edge of the heavy rain is lined up from Centre in Cherokee County to Talladega to Clanton to Marion to Linden. Expect some gusty winds and really heavy rain for 20 to 40 minutes along the line itself, followed by 1 to 2 hours of light rain and sprinkles. Fortunately, the risk of severe weather is over for this event. There is no longer a tornado risk or damaging risk along the line based on the current stage of the atmosphere and radar trends.

regional_temp_640.JPG

We are continuing to see the severe weather threat across central Alabama come to an end. Several counties have been trimmed from the tornado watch that was supposed to last until 8p.m. and we will likely see several more be trimmed in the next hour as the line of storms continues to push toward the east. We are continuing to do cut in on WVUA 23 News and on our website under the weather tab.

If we do get a tornado warning, you can see us live on both our station channel and via the website. We are also keeping the blog updated on all weather happenings!

2:30pm Friday Radar/Weather Update #alwx @wvua23

aahahahahjjjjjjjjd.png

At 2:20pm, there are no current warnings in our area. A tornado watch continues until 8pm this evening, but the storms along the line and out ahead of the line are not showing signs of rotation at the moment. Once the main line passes east of your area, the risk of severe weather will be over for you. We’ll likely see counties dropped from the tornado watch this afternoon, as the line continues to move east.

Expect heavy rain as the line moves through, which could cause some flooding issues. There is a small chance of an isolated spin-up tornado or two through the afternoon, but the risk appears to be lessening. The surface wind is veering around to the southwest, which is a limiting factor when it comes to tornado formation. I still want you to be alert for the next few hours incase a storm or two gets out of hand and become severe…

If a tornado warning is issued for our area, you can watch us live non-stop on WVUA/WUOA or online here: http://wvua23.com/severe-weather-happening-now-live-stream/
