Hot Days… Scattered Storms… Tuesday Forecast Update – 4:30pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! It has turned out to be a hot day before a batch of showers and storms moved into the area. At 4:30pm, a broken line of storms is stretched from Livingston to Demopolis to Montgomery and is moving south. These storms are producing tons of lightning and a quick burst of heavy rain. Areas to the north of this line are beginning to dry out. Expect temperatures to remain in the 70s this evening and into the overnight hours. There could be some fog in spots.

We’re stuck between a strong ridge to the west and a trough to the northeast, keeping our area under a north or northwesterly flow aloft. Given tropical moisture in place and several small scale disturbances riding the outer edge of the ridge, we’ll maintain the risk of a few scattered storms each afternoon this week and through the weekend. It will not rain everywhere everyday, as storms will remain scattered. The best chance of getting a storm will be during the afternoon hours, but I can’t rule out a morning or overnight storm. Best word of advice… keep the umbrella handy, as these storms will develop suddenly and die out quickly. Storms won’t last long in one spot this week and into the weekend, and again, it will not rain all week… There’s simply the risk of getting one of these passing storms each day this week.


In the tropics, we’ve got Tropical Storm Earl in the Caribbean, moving towards the Yucatan and Belize. Earl has a chance to become a weak hurricane before landfall, however, Earl will not impact our local weather or the weather anywhere in the US.
