Scattered Storms Ahead… Tuesday Forecast Update -4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out rather hot this afternoon, under a partly cloudy sky. As of 4pm, a thin band of scattered showers and storms were moving northwest across central and west Alabama. Some areas will miss out on the scattered storms this afternoon and tonight.

The upper air ridge will continue to break into 2 sections over the next few days, one to the west and one to the east. We’ll remain in this weak upper air trough axis over Alabama, allowing air temperatures above the ground to be a bit cooler. With rather hot surface temperatures and cold air above the ground, this creates instability, thus, enhancing the risk of scattered storms each day through the weekend and early next week. Highs will drop into the upper 80s to near 90 each afternoon, with lows in the lower to middle 70s. The risk of storms will be the greatest during the afternoon hours, but I can’t rule out a storm at night as well…

The tropics remain quiet…
