Scattered Storms/Muggy Air Continues… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has started off very mild and muggy this morning, with a few scattered storms developing this afternoon. As of 4:15pm, the highest coverage of scattered storms was south of Tuscaloosa/Birmingham/Anniston. There’s a stationary boundary draped across our area. To the north of the boundary, rain chances are much lower, compared to the scattered to numerous storms south of the boundary. The risk of scattered storms across central and south Alabama will diminish this evening after sunset.

Our local area will be under the influence of a stationary boundary and plentiful tropical moisture through the rest of the week and into the weekend. Expect a fair chance of scattered, mainly afternoon and evening storms each day. It will not rain all day in any one spot; in-fact, you shouldn’t get more than an hour of rain at your house each day this week. Look for highs to reach the low to mid 80s through Sunday, with lows in the upper 60s.

A weak cold front will approach our area from the northwest on Sunday, brining a higher chance of scattered showers and storms to our area Saturday through Monday. By Monday night, the front should be ending the rain chance from northwest to southeast. I do not expect an all day/night rain this weekend, but you may get an hour or two of rain at your house. Skies will remain partly to mostly cloudy through Monday. Rain amounts will vary drastically, between little to no rain in a few spots to over 2 inches in other spots. Given the scattered nature of the storms, you could get an inch of rain at your house, while your neighbor doesn’t get a drop…
