7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out unsettled and wet at times today, as Tropical Storm Harvey moves inland over Louisiana. Expect tropical rain bands to continue at times through Thursday night. There will be big breaks in the rain between bands, but keep the umbrella handy.

As the low with Harvey gets closer to northwest Alabama Thursday afternoon, wind shear will increase and instability will increase. This will put is in a low end risk of an isolated tornado or two. The best chance of that will be during the afternoon and evening hours on Thursday.

Harvey will move to the northeast of us by Friday afternoon, leaving our area drier on Friday. A few morning showers are possible north of I-20 on Friday, but I expect nice conditions for high school football Friday night.

Labor Day weekend is looking really nice! Expect plenty of sunshine, with dry air. Highs will reach the upper 80s, with lows in the middle 60s at night. Our next risk of rain will arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.
