Monday Afternoon Weather Discussion-3:47 PM

The past few days have been quite busy for us, with several complexes of strong to severe thunderstorms moving into the state. There is still a chance for some thunderstorms this evening, but the main rain threat will be in areas north and east of Tuscaloosa. Otherwise, tonight is going to be fair, with lows near 70 degrees. Our monthly rainfall budget is showing a rain total very close to average; however, we’re going to need some rain by the middle of the week. An upper air ridge is building overhead and this will bring us dry weather for the next several days. Highs will be rising into the middle to upper 90s, with afternoon heat index values between 100 and 105 degrees. The sky will be sunny for the most part and the threat for thunderstorms will be in areas to our north through at-least Friday. By the weekend the ridge will be weakening and this will set the stage for the chance of an afternoon thunderstorm or shower. We’re still going to have a decent dry period over the weekend and not all areas will receive rain on Saturday and Sunday. Have a great evening and be sure to join us tonight for more details!
