Scattered Storms Tuesday… Hot Mid Week! Monday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Monday afternoon! It has turned out to be another rather hot summer day, with temperatures reaching the 90s state-wide. A few tiny showers and storms have popped up over portions of west and central Alabama, but most areas are missing out on the rain. The risk of isolated storms will rapidly fade after sunset this evening. Expect lows in the middle 70s overnight.

By Tuesday, a weak upper air disturbance will move across the state. This will spark the development of scattered showers and storms. While I don’t expect an all day, a good many spots will get a passing downpour.

The upper air ridge will really build into the area on Wednesday and Thursday, sending temperatures into the upper 90s. An isolated afternoon shower or storm is possible, but most areas will not get rain.

The ridge will back down a bit by the weekend, allowing the risk of scattered storms to increase. There is some evidence an upper air trough will dig across the east, sending more energy to get storms firing across the state. At this time, rain chances stand at 30 to 40% but may have to be increased or decreased depending on that feature…

The tropics remain quiet…
