Some Storms Chances Continue Through Tuesday…Friday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM

Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather has become rather noisy this afternoon, as a cluster of storms has moved into northwest Alabama. At 4:30pm, strong storms are lined up from near Reform to Fayette to Haleyville, moving east southeast. These storms could produce hail and isolated wind damage over the next few hours, as they impact areas near and north of I-59 this evening. The storms this afternoon are in response to a MCS, moving along an old frontal boundary.

We’ve got a rather unsettled pattern ahead of us between now and Tuesday, with occasional bats of showers and storms across Alabama. Saturday will feature a mostly dry day before noon, with some scattered storms increasing by mid to late afternoon. There’s a chance a weakening MCS impacts west Alabama during the mid to late afternoon hours. Highs will reach the mid 80s on Saturday. As a cold front moves into Alabama on Sunday, look for a good chance of rain and storms. I don’t expect it to rain all day on Sunday, but periods of showers and storms will be possible at any time. The front will stall across our area and serve as a focus point for occasional showers and storms on Monday and Tuesday, until the air finally dries out Tuesday night. Rain amounts will vary a good bit across the state, with some areas picking up over 2″ of rain and other spots less than 1″. Highs will cool a bit on Monday through Thursday, as a upper air trough digs across the east. Look for highs in the middle to upper 70s, with lows well down into the 50s.
