We have only isolated showers around West Alabama this afternoon. We still have the threat for more storms through the evening hours. There is lots of tropical moisture streaming into the area from the Gulf of Mexico due to the remnants of what was Claudette.

Tomorrow and Thursday have the same forecast, a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms along with warm and muggy conditions under mostly cloudy skies. Highs both days at 89 degrees.

Friday, a cold front moves through the area bringing us a good chance for rain and storms. Some of the storms could be strong! Highs Friday will be in the upper 80s with mostly cloudy skies.

Behind that front, we’ll see a very pleasant weekend! (However, I can’t rule out a shower or storm far south of Tuscaloosa for the first part of Saturday.) Saturday, we’ll see clearing skies with temperatures around 90. Sunday, mostly sunny with temperatures around 90 again. Monday and Tuesday will be about the same; dry, mostly sunny and warm!

Hurricane Bill continues to strengthen in the open Atlantic. Forecast models still turn it to the north toward Bermuda later this week… and take it towards New England and the Canadian Maritime.

I’ll see you on the air at 4:00, 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00!
