Muggy With Scattered Storms Ahead… Tuesday Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23


Good Tuesday afternoon! It’s been another very muggy day across Alabama, with scattered showers and storms dumping very heavy rain in some spots and missing other areas with no rain. A stationary boundary close to I-20 is serving as a focal point for showers and storms today. We’ve had reports of over 2 inches of rain under the heavier storms this afternoon. The risk of showers and storms will gradually diminish later this evening and tonight as the air temperatures cools a bit. Expect lows in the mid 60s tonight.

Wednesday will be very similar to today, with the risk of scattered showers and storms along and south of the boundary. We think the best chance of getting a storm tomorrow will be along and south of I-20, with lower chances the further north of I-20 you live. It will not rain all day and some areas will not get rain. Where storms do form, they will drop heavy rain in a short period of time.

Thursday and Friday will continue nearly exactly the same as today and Wednesday. Expect scattered showers and storms, with some areas getting a heavy burst of rain while other areas remain dry. The risk of any one spots getting rained on is at 40% Wednesday through Friday.

There is evidence a weak surface front will approach the area over the weekend, and that may help to slightly enhance the rain chance over the weekend. At this point, I’ve got a 50% risk of any one spot getting rain this weekend. Highs will remain in the mid 80s, with lows in the upper 60s to near 70.
