Storms Likely Ahead… Thursday Forecast Update – 4:30PM #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Thursday afternoon! As moisture continues to increase across Alabama, showers and storms have blossomed on radar. Uplift associated with a weak upper air trough axis has really teamed up with the deep tropical moisture over Alabama to produce a good wet-down. Expect a cluster of storms to develop over east Mississippi and west Alabama late tonight into the midday hours on Friday. Depending on where the cluster of storms forms will determine how much rain will fall at your house, but I’m concerned that some areas could deal with flash flooding late tonight into the midday hours on Friday, under the heavier storms. We’ll need to watch that risk carefully.

A weakening cold front will approach Alabama and stall out nearby over the weekend. This will keep our area in an area of enhanced rain chances. I do not expect an all day rain on Saturday or Sunday, but a passing downpour is possible, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. It may rain an hour or two in one spot, but rain should not last longer than that on any given day this weekend.

By Monday and Tuesday, rain chances return to 30%, which is more typical of a summer day. If you have plans outdoors on the 4th, the risk of rain is not exceptionally high, but a passing afternoon shower or storm will be possible. Highs will approach 90 degrees during the afternoon.
