Scattered Summer Storms Each Day; Highs in the 90s – Sunday Evening Forecast Update 9:05 PM

As expected today, most of the shower activity was confined to the far southern fringes of our viewing area, namely southern Marengo County. It was a very hot and humid day as highs rose into the low 90s with the heat index exceeding 100 in some spots. I’m expecting the same forecast for your Monday as well, with a few showers or storms possible over west Alabama as an upper level impulse moves around the periphery of a ridge of high pressure located in Texas .

The middle of the week will feature about a 40% chance of afternoon storms with highs in the low 90s. It won’t rain all day each day, but be aware a few downpours are possible during mid-week. As we head towards the end of the week, a frontal boundary tries to approach us from the north. What this will mean is a slightly higher rain chance compared to mid-week, but highs will remain in the low 90s. It looks like the front may stall out over the weekend, but overall confidence in this happening remains low; therefore, I opted to keep rain chances at around 40% to close out the weekend.

A quick check of the tropics reveals no tropical cyclone formation expected in the next 48 hours, so that’s good news! Enjoy your week!
