Very Mild Now… Some Storms Ahead… Wednesday Forecast Update – 3:15pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Its hot across Alabama, with most areas reporting upper 80s to low 90s. A few pop up showers and storms have formed across central Alabama, but most of the state remains dry. Temperatures will gradually drop into the 70s after sunset, with an overnight low in the upper 60s.

A few scattered afternoon storms will become possible on Thursday, as moisture continues to increase, but the risk of any one spot getting rain is at 30%, so don’t count on a beneficial rain on Thursday. The risk of scattered storms will decrease to 10% on Friday, as an upper air ridge temporarily builds in our area.

A deep trough across the central US will shift eastward over the weekend, allowing for the risk of rain and storms to return to the state. A few scattered storms are possible late in the day on Saturday, but I expect most of the day to be dry. There’s evidence of a wave of showers and storms moving into the area Saturday night, followed by additional showers and storms at times on Sunday. Uplift and plentiful moisture available for Sunday will create a wet day. While I don’t expect rain non-stop all day, I do expect several rounds of rain and thunder. Rain amounts of 1 to 2 inches appear likely. Severe weather is not expected.

The risk of a few showers will shift south of our area on Monday and Tuesday, but models suggest another storm system will impact Alabama by the middle of next week, with a round of rain and storms.
