Muggy Conditions Continue with Scattered Storms… Thursday Forecast Update – 3:45pm #alwx


Good Thursday afternoon! We continue under a deep layer of moist air across Alabama, so scattered storms have dotted the landscape once again this afternoon. Storms aren’t especially numerous, but scattered strong storms are slowly tracking across parts of Alabama. The risk of rain for any one spot is about 40% for the rest of the evening. Temperatures will gradually drop into the 70s by 10pm tonight, but conditions will remain muggy. 

Friday and Saturday will feature very similar conditions. Expect a partly cloudy sky, hot temperatures, muggy conditions and the risk of a few scattered storms. The risk of rain stands at 40% both days, but the best chance of getting a storm where you live will be during the afternoon hours. Storms won’t last long in one spot and some areas will miss out on the rain.

The risk of scattered storms will drop a bit on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, as slightly drier air moves in from the north. I still expect a few pop-up storms, with highs in the lower 90s. The coverage of storms will be lower, so the risk of rain for any one spot is about 20 to 30%…

Football Friday will include very mild and muggy conditions across west and central Alabama. If you’re going to a local high school football game, there is the risk of a passing storm or two. The rain chance Friday evening is at 40%, so some stadiums will totally miss the rain. With the random nature of summer storms, it is impossible to garentee dry weather at your stadium. Take the poncho to be safe… Temperatures will start off in the middle to upper 80s at 7pm, then drop into the upper 70s at 10pm.

Alabama takes on Florida Atlantic in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, with an 11am kickoff. Scattered storms are possible around game-time, but storms won’t last long in one spot. The risk of a storm passing over the stadium during game-time is about 40%. I would take the poncho to be safe incase a passing storm moves through…

Auburn takes on San Jose State in Auburn on Saturday, with a 6pm kickoff. There is the risk of a passing storm around game-time, but the chance is only about 40%. Take the poncho to be safe, incase a pop-up storm moves over the stadium during game-time. Temperatures will drop into the middle to lower 80s through the game, with a very muggy feel to the air.
