9pm Radar Update… Storms Moving Out…#alwx @wvua23

58.png

At 9pm Thursday, a line of strong storms lined up from Demopolis to Clanton to Talladega to Anniston is moving southeast and will exit our central Alabama counties in the next couple of hours. By 11pm, I expect the storms to be south of our southern most counties, as the line picks up speed a bit. Severe weather is unlikely, but as the storm moves across your area, if you haven’t already been impacted, will produce gusty winds, heavy rain and intense lightning. Storms will end within about an hour after beginning in your area.

The weather will turn out nice and dry on Friday…

6:25pm Radar Update…Storms Moving Through… #alwx @wvua23

At 6:25pm, we’ve got a batch of intense storms moving east to east southeast at 40mph. At that time, storms were lined up from Winston County, southwest into Lamar┬áCounty and northwest Pickens County.┬áStorms are producing heavy rain, gusty wind, intense lightning and possibly small hail. Storms won’t last very long once they reach your area. The severe thunderstorm warning for Lamar Co has expired, but there could be an additional isolated severe thunderstorm warning or two as the storms track across west and central Alabama.

Northwest Alabama will begin to dry out by 8pm or 9pm this evening. Areas along I-59 will be impacted by the storms around 7pm to 9pm, then storms should gradually push southeast of I-59 by 10pm.

Storms This Eve… Nice Days Ahead… Thursday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Thursday afternoon! Portions of north and central Alabama have experienced passing scattered storms today, but not everyone has got rain yet, especially in areas to the south of I-20. As a cold front moves into Alabama this evening, expect a good chance of showers and storms beginning in northwest Alabama soon, then shifting southeast as the evening progresses. Models agree that the main round of storms will be over well before midnight, with only a small chance of a shower between midnight and sunrise Friday.

Drier air will take over on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Expect highs to reach the lower 80s on Friday and Saturday, under a mostly sunny sky. A second cold front will push through the state sometime on Saturday, bringing slightly cooler air on Sunday. Highs will only top out in the 70s on Sunday, with some passing clouds. Expect lows well down into the 50s Friday night through Sunday night.

A warm front will track northward on Monday, with a small chance of isolated showers or perhaps a storm.

Our next system to impact Alabama will arrive next week, with a decent risk of scattered showers and storms late Tuesday through Thursday. It will not rain the entire time, but a few waves of showers and storms will become possible…
