Rain Chances Increase Ahead… Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

da.png Good Tuesday afternoon! At 4pm, scattered showers and storms were slowly moving northeast across central Alabama. Not everyone is dealing with the storms. It’s interesting to note that some spots have picked up 1 to 2 inches of rain in an hour while a mile down the road, it’s dry. Scattered showers and storms will fade away just after sunset this evening.

A weak surface front will approach the area from the north on Wednesday and Thursday. We’ll notice an increase in the coverage of showers and storms, especially during the afternoon and evening hours. Highs will reach the lower 90s on Wednesday and Thursday. The risk of a passing storm at your house is 40% Wednesday and 60% Thursday. Keep in mind, where storms do form, they will dump a lot of rain in a short period of time.

Scattered showers and storms will remain a possibility through the upcoming weekend. I do not expect an all day type of rain, but keep the umbrella nearby incase a passing downpour impacts your area.

In the tropics, Subtropical Storm Debby as formed in the central Atlantic. Winds are at 40mph, and the system is moving north, away from land. The rest of the Atlantic is quiet.
