Thursday Forecast Discussion Update

There is an old saying that once you are in a dry pattern or drought, it’s tough to break out of that pattern. We are certainly experiencing that scenario first hand as the rainfall deficit continues to rise. East Alabama has been rather lucky this week, with some heavy thunderstorms producing rain. For us, the chance for a stray shower or thunderstorm will linger through tomorrow. Unfortunately, many locations will stay dry, with the sky being partly to mostly sunny. Highs over the next couple of days will reach the mid 90s and this Father’s Day Weekend we will be soaring into the upper 90s, approaching the 100-degree in some areas. If you were planning on heading to the pool this weekend it’s certainly going to be hot enough for you and you’ll need plenty of sunscreen.

Monday we will experience another very hot and dry day; however, a cold front will be bringing rain back into our forecast on Tuesday. This has been our next best hope for rain, but now the data is starting to trim back on the precipitation estimates. For now it looks like scattered thunderstorms and showers will be possible for Tuesday and Wednesday. Join us tonight at five, six, and ten for more details.
