Few Storms Possible Through Tuesday… Monday Update – 4:25pm #alwx @wvua23


Good Monday afternoon! As of 4:25pm, there are a good number of scattered storms ongoing across west and central Alabama, with some flash flooding issues reported around Birmingham and Oneonta. Storms are slow movers, so they will drop a lot of rain in a short period of time. Given the nature of scattered storms, some areas are getting a good soaking while other spots are hot and dry. Scattered storms will gradually diminish overnight.

With a weak upper air trough and low overhead, I expect a few scattered storms to re-develop on Tuesday. The best chance of seeing a passing storm will be during the afternoon hours, but a stray morning shower or storm can’t be ruled out. Expect a partly sunny sky on Tuesday, with a high in the upper 80s to near 90.

Upper level ridging will nose in from the west on Wednesday and Thursday, reducing rain chances to 20%. While an isolated afternoon or evening storm can’t be ruled out, most areas will remain dry.

A weak surface front will arrive on Saturday. The front should bring an increased coverage of scattered storms to the area during the day on Saturday.
