Isolated Rain Monday… Sunshine For a Few Days… Tropical Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Sunday Evening!

We saw some thunderstorms this afternoon, some being severe. We had a cloudy, warm, muggy, and rainy day. Luckily, this will not be the case for much longer.

Your Monday will top out in the lower 90s. You still have rain in the forecast, just a very low percentage. Keep the umbrella handy one more day!

Temps will cool into the lower 70s with clouds clearing to make for a sunshine filled Tuesday. Expect humid conditions with temps once again in the lower 90s.

Your Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday will be hot with temps ranging from the upper 80s to the lower 90s.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. A large area of showers and thunderstorms over the Bay of Campeche 
is associated with a broad low pressure area, and the overall 
system has become somewhat better organized since yesterday.  Slow 
development is possible during the next few days while the system 
meanders near the coast of Mexico, and a tropical depression could 
form late in the week while the system begins to move slowly 
northward.  Regardless of development, heavy rainfall is possible 
over portions of Central America and southern Mexico during the 
next several days.


2. A non-tropical area of low pressure has formed about 150 miles 
south of Wilmington, North Carolina and is producing disorganized 
showers and thunderstorms.  This system is forecast to move
northeastward for the next few days near the warm Gulf Stream, 
which could allow for some tropical development to occur while it 
moves away from the United States.  The low should be over cold 
waters south of Nova Scotia by midweek, ending its development 
chances.

As of right now we are monitoring system #1. If this does organize we could see some rain from it by the weekend.

Isolated Storms Sunday…Hot Week & An Update On The Tropics! #alwx @wvua23

Good Saturday Afternoon Everyone!

As we begin to close off this rain filled week, I have some exciting news for you. While our Sunday will still contain some isolated storms, things begin to clear out. Expect high temps in the lower 90s for your Sunday.

The rain will be moving out of our area which is great! However it will leave some humidity and heat in its wake. Your Monday and Tuesday will be hot, in the lower 90s with muggy conditions as dew points will be in the 70s.

Your Wednesday and Thursday will be just a little bit cooler as temps will top out in the upper 80’s with clear and sunny skies.

Some clouds move back in later in the week, and some things could change within the next few days but temps on Friday are looking as if they will stay in the upper 80s.

TROPICAL UPDATE:

Right now the National Hurricane Center is watching a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico. This disturbance is located over the Bay of Campeche. The system is slow moving and has a chance to develop into a tropical depression mid-week. While we are watching it, it seems this is nothing to be concerned about at the moment. We will always keep you updated.

Rain Chances Going Down on Sunday and Monday… Hotter Weather… Friday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Friday afternoon! We’ve had more storms today across portions of west and central Alabama. Some storms across west Alabama, especially near the Tuscaloosa Co. & Pickens Co. area. At one point, flash flood warnings were in place due to very heavy rain rates. The chance of a few scattered storms will remain possible this evening and tonight, with temperatures dropping into the lower 70s.

I expect a mix of sun and clouds on Saturday, with the chance of scattered showers and storms. Widespread rain is unlikely, but some heavy downpours could lead to brief flooding.

Rain chances continue to decrease on Sunday, with a small rain chance in the forecast. Temperatures will reach the lower 90s on Sunday and Monday. Mainly dry conditions can be expected early next week.

Scattered Storms Remain Likely… Wednesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has once again included a hot day, with scattered showers and storms developing across our area. As of 4pm, storms have become rather widespread across the northern half of Alabama.

Occasional showers and storms will remain a good possibility tonight and tomorrow, with temperatures returning into the lower or middle 80s during the afternoon hours Thursday.

As the upper level feature remains north of Alabama through Saturday, we can expect occasional showers and storms through Saturday. Like the past few days, this is not an all day rain. I would keep the umbrella handy.

The risk of scattered storms will decrease a bit by the end of the weekend and early portion of next week. Temperatures will be a bit hotter by that point.
