Storms Arrive Thursday Eve… Nice Weekend… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out hot again this afternoon, with a summer feel to the air. There is no rain on radar, as the atmosphere continues to be capped off, with a lid of warmer air a few thousand feet above the ground. Temperatures tonight will drop into the upper 60s, with a partly cloudy sky. I don’t expect any storms overnight tonight.

A cold front will push into Alabama Thursday night, with the risk of scattered showers and storms ahead of the front during the late afternoon into Thursday night. Severe weather is not expected at this time, however, we’ll watch radar trends carefully. Storms move out very early Friday morning; in-fact, most of the day will be dry and nice. Highs will remain in the lower 80s on Friday, with temperatures dipping into the 50s Friday night.

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.

Our next system to impact Alabama will arrive next week, with a decent risk of scattered showers and storms.
