Scattered Storms Remain Likely… Thursday Forecast Update – 4:25pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Thursday afternoon! We’ve had lots of storms develop today and track east across the state. While a few spots did remain dry, a good portion of central and west Alabama got atleast one passing downpour today. At 4:25pm, there are still lots of scattered storms across  the state, moving east or northeast. These storms will gradually fade after sunset, but isolated showers and storms remain possible overnight. If you didn’t get rain today, there is still a good chance of scattered showers and storms each day through the weekend and into early next week.

This upper air trough axis near Alabama and points just to the west will continue to keep us under a favorable environment for scattered to numerous shower and thunderstorm development. While it will not rain all day, most of you will get a few passing downpours from time to time, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Highs will remain in the lower 90s through early next week, with lows in the lower to middle 70s.

Tropics: We are now watching 2 waves in the east Atlantic, which both have a potential to develop into a tropical storm over the next 5 to 7 days. Given the dry air and wind shear near these two features at the moment, it’s unlikely rapid development can occur, however, as they move westward, development may become possible. It’s way to early to know if they will become a named storm and if the US will be impacted or not. We’ll be watching and updating you as they move west.
