Afternoon Isolated Storms for Work Week. Memorial Day Forecast Update, 5 p.m. #wxal @wvua 23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngHappy Memorial Day! We saw isolated showers and storms passing through central Alabama throughout the day. It first started very early this morning in west Alabama and was already lined across central Alabama from southern Hale County through Jefferson County by 9 a.m. Those showers and storms continued to press east and are now out of the state. There is a small cluster of showers moving through Mississippi that might bring a few sprinkles for west Alabama early this evening, but no major wash-out to worry about. North Alabama is starting to see a few isolated storms develop, including Walker and Cullman counties. These storms likely won’t last long with how fast they are moving and since they are about to lose daytime heating. Temperatures were never very hot, but muggy, humid air still made for slightly unpleasant conditions outdoors. Tonight, expect things to remain mostly dry but humid. Tomorrow will start our late beginning work week dry with another round of showers and storms developing by the afternoon. This rain will be widely scattered so some will remain dry.

The rest of this coming work week will see scattered showers and storms developing in the afternoon with a stalled front resting over the state of Alabama. Early mornings and nights should remain dry though. Despite the present front, conditions will continue to warm and feel very muggy. Summer time is here!

Next weekend will see a low developing to our north that should help pull this stalled front our from Alabama…unfortunately it will take some time. It should take almost all weekend into next work week to move it out. Before that happens, plan on even more afternoon showers and storms but some slightly lower temperatures. Humidity will still be high though!
