Friday Afternoon Update: 3:22 p.m.

This afternoon we’ve been monitoring thunderstorm development southwest of Tuscaloosa. This is within the same general vicinity that experienced decent rainfall amounts yesterday. The heaviest downpours have impacted communities like Hamner, Geiger, and Emelle, in Sumter County. We will continue to see storms develop through the early evening hours tonight and then this activity will dissipate by the late night hours.

Other than the scattered thunderstorms, the main story for our area has been hot and humid conditions. We will have another big time warm-up for tomorrow and Sunday, with highs in the mid to upper 90s. We will have periods of sunshine this weekend, with scattered thunderstorms developing in the afternoon. We will remain positioned on the eastern edge of a high pressure ridge and with the addition of small scale boundaries over the state, there will continue to be a good coverage of thunderstorms in the afternoon.

As for rain chances, the data this afternoon doesn’t look quite as impressive for the start of next week. It looks like most of the rain development in the afternoon will be happening to our south. A stray shower or thunderstorm will still be possible on Monday and Tuesday, with highs in the upper 90s. The weather for the start of next week is looking much like the setup we dealt with earlier this week. Some model output suggests a high of 100 degrees on Monday. We will have more details for you at 4, 5, 6, and 10 on WVUA…Be sure to join us!
