Hot Thursday… Mild & Dry Weekend… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! We started off this morning with very heavy rain over portions of west Alabama, as a very small scale disturbance sparked off a cluster of storms. That batch of storms has moved into extreme southeast Alabama and southwest Georgia. We are watching another cluster of storms move towards west & central Alabama. This is MCS or cluster of organized storms. There are numerous severe thunderstorm warnings along the cluster, but the storms will likely weaken as they move into central Alabama. The best chance of being impacted by the storms will be between 6pm and 10pm along and north of I-20, then after 10pm for areas south of I-20.

Upper air ridging will build in from the west on Thursday, with the risk of isolated, mainly afternoon storms. I don’t expect widespread rain on Thursday or on Friday, but don’t be shocked if you get a passing downpour. Highs will top out in the upper 90s, with a heat index nearing 105 on Thursday, then mid 90s on Friday, with a heat index between 100 and 103.

Drier air will move in by the weekend, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90, with no organized rain chance. Look for lots of sunshine for Father’s Day weekend!

The tropics are quiet for the moment…
