gjhd.png

As of 6pm, we continue with a large area of rain and thunder stretching across the area. Rain covers all of west and central Alabama, with some isolated flooding issues where more intense storms managed to form. The coverage of rain will decrease in coverage over the next few hours, with mostly dry conditions tonight after 9pm.

Wednesday through Saturday will feature identical weather conditions. Expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky, with scattered showers and storms possible at any time. The higher rain chance will happen during the afternoon and evening hours, but I can’t rule out isolated morning showers or storms. Expect highs in the mid to upper 80s.

The number of scattered storms will decrease by Sunday and Monday, as ridging builds in from the east. I still expect a few scattered pop up storms during the afternoon hours.

Scattered Storms Remain in the Forecast… Monday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Monday afternoon! Radar shows an active day with scattered showers and storms ongoing as of 6pm. Storms are moving generally west to east across the area. We’ll maintain the chance of a few passing storms overnight, but it will not rain everywhere or all night. Expect lows in the lower 70s tonight.

Tuesday will feature a higher risk of scattered showers and storms, but again, rain will not fall all day. Keep your umbrella nearby on Tuesday; in-fact, it would be wise to keep it handy all week and into the weekend.

Temperatures will remain a little below average this week, as extensive clouds and occasional showers and storms will help to keep temperatures from getting as hot. Highs will still manage to reach the middle to upper 80s each afternoon. Rain chances will be highest on Tuesday, but I do expect scattered storms to remain a good possibility through the end of the week and into the upcoming weekend.

Rainy Week Ahead… Forecast Update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngBoy was is a gorgeous weekend! We saw plenty of sunshine with some drier air coming in from the north. Unfortunately, this won’t be the case tomorrow…

Tomorrow winds will change and we will be seeing southern winds return bringing in moisture from the Gulf that will make conditions feel a little more humid. Highs will reach into the low 90s tomorrow with times of sun and showers. Rain will be isolated across the state.

Tuesday temperatures will begin to cool and highs will only reach into the mid 80s! However, we will be seeing some stronger storms moving into the state on Tuesday and Wednesday. Be prepared for a washout on Tuesday.

Temperatures will stay cooler until Friday when they will return to the upper 80s low 90s. Rain is in your forecast all week so grabs those coats and umbrellas!

Cooler Days Ahead! Forecast Update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Saturday evening! It was so wonderful here in central Alabama this afternoon! Highs were pretty scattered across the state with Tuscaloosa reaching 96, Birmingham reaching 93, and more northern counties in the upper 80s.

Tonight a few clouds will begin to move in and we will ahve a partly cloudy night with lows dropping into the low 70s upper 60s possible. Dewpoints today stayed low which made the heat feel a little more tolerable and tonight we will experience a similar situation through tomorrow evening as well.

Tomorrow will be almost identical to today so be sure to get outside and enjoy the final day of the weekend!

Monday is when the weather will begin to change again and rain chances will move back into your forecast through next weekend. Some stronger storms are possible Tuesday into Wednesday. Timing and severity is still unclear but we will keep you up to date with the latest information. Temperatures will also begin to cool down into the mid 80s by Tuesday.

Sunny Weekend Ahead! Forecast update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Friday evening! We’ve finally made it to the weekend and to make that even better, it’s going to be a great weekend to get out and finally work on that tan. Mostly sunny skies are expected for central Alabama both Saturday and Sunday with highs to reach into the low to mid 90s. Be sure to stay hydrated and wear sunscreen!

Dewpoints will also be lower this weekend making the days feel less oppressive because we have drier air from the north moving in. This won’t be the case all week though. Come Monday winds will shift and moisture from the Gulf will return as air moves in from the south making the days feel more muggy.

Sunday into Monday we will start to see rain chances move back into the forecast. Monday showers will be scattered. Tuesday though storms will be a little stronger because the atmosphere will have more instability. Confidence is low for severe weather right now, but we will keep you update on the storms potential. Rain stays in your forecast through Friday with temperatures also cooling down into the mid 80s on Tuesday!

Good Thursday evening! Our local weather remained all dry today across the area, with lots of sunshine and hot afternoon temperatures. Expect lows in the lower 70s tonight, under a mostly clear sky.

Friday, we’ll introduce a small chance of an isolated afternoon storm. The risk of rain is at 10% and mainly for areas north of I-20. If a stray shower pops up in your area, it won’t last long at all.

Drier air will push in on Saturday, with the best chance of isolated storms south of HWY 80. Expect highs in the lower 90s. Isolated storms will be possible for our area on Sunday, with the chance at 30%.

Monday, the rain chance will climb just a bit, with the risk of rain at 40%. Highs will drop into the upper 80s on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. As a front drops in from the northwest, with good upper air support. Scattered to widespread showers and storms will develop on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Hot Week Continues… Rain Chances Increase By Sunday and Monday… Wednesday Eve Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.png

Good Wednesday evening! Our local weather remains dry this evening, with temperatures gradually dropping into the lower 70s. Expect a clear sky overnight.

Thursday and Friday will feature rather hot daytime temperatures. We will warm into the lower to middle 90s by Thursday and Friday afternoon. Clouds increase somewhat on Friday, with the chance of a few isolated showers and storms by Friday afternoon.

Drier air will move right back in on Saturday, but moisture quickly pools into our area on Sunday, with an increased chance of scattered showers and storms by the afternoon.

A upper level low will dig to the west of Alabama on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, allowing for uplift and moisture to surge northward. This will help to spark a good coverage of scattered showers and storms each day.
