Hot Wednesday… Some Storms Ahead… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out hot this afternoon, with an air temperature in the middle to upper 80s. There’s a rather strong cap over our area, preventing shower and thunderstorm development. I expected a few isolated storms to pop up after lunch today, but the cap is stronger than expected and preventing much from developing. There could be an isolated storm this evening, but the risk is low. Expect temperatures to return into the upper 70s by 8pm and middle 60s before sunrise.

We’ll remain capped off on Wednesday, so shower and storm development is unlikely. I’ve got a 20% risk of a stray afternoon storm, but most of you will remain dry. Highs will approach 90 in some spots on Wednesday!

A cold front will approach Alabama Thursday night, brining the risk of scattered showers and storms Thursday evening through Friday morning. The best chance of rain appears to happen between 5pm Thursday and 9am Friday. Severe weather is unlikely…

Drier air will move in this weekend, with a drop in dewpoints. Highs will reach the lower 80s, with a good dose of sunshine both Saturday and Sunday.
