Scattered Showers/Storms Continue…Friday Forecast Update – 4 PM @wvua23 #alwx

A good Friday afternoon to everybody! As expected showers are numerous across central Alabama this afternoon. The high so far today in Tuscaloosa is only 86 degrees, as cloud cover has once again kept the temperatures in check, and this is a trend that applies to much of central Alabama with the exception of a few locations east of interstate 65 where some additional sunshine has temperatures in the upper 80s.


THE REST OF TODAY/TONIGHT: Scattered downpours will continue through this afternoon with coverage dwindling as we get closer to the 10 o’clock hour. Overnight expect another partly to mostly cloudy sky, so viewing conditions will be less than ideal for anybody hoping to catch a glimpse of the Perseid meteor shower, but some breaks in the clouds are possible. Overnight lows drop in to the middle 70s.

MORE OF THE SAME TOMORROW: Low pressure to our south and west remains in place, likely resulting in additional shower and storm activity for tomorrow with the chance of rain still at 50 percent. Similar to today, movement of the showers and storms will be to the north. Afternoon highs tomorrow remain in the upper 80s with a partly sunny to mostly cloudy sky.

SUNDAY AND THE BEGINNING OF THE WEEK: Although Sunday initially looked like a day with slightly reduced rain chances, newer model runs suggest shower activity likely remains in place, so we will maintain a 40 percent chance of rain for Sunday. Monday, however, appears to be slightly drier and some more sunshine should start to build in by the beginning of the work week. Afternoon highs also begin to increase slightly in to the low 90s.

THE TROPICS: No activity is expected in the Atlantic basin within at least the next 48 hours.
