Scattered Storms Remain Possible Ahead… Hotter Days… Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (12).jpgGood Monday afternoon! Our local weather remains very muggy, to the east of the remnant circulation of Barry. Showers and storms were fairly widespread this morning for west Alabama, with some locally heavy downpours to the west of I-65. Scattered storms continue this evening, but these will fade away after sunset.

We’ll continue with a chance of scattered showers and storms on Tuesday, with the best chance being to the north of I-20. Given the very humid airmass and some weak uplift in the area, I can’t rule out a shower or storm during the morning or overnight hours. The best chance of a storm will happen during the afternoon, with the afternoon heating process.

Wednesday, there’s some evidence we may have a cluster of storms develop and impact areas near and to the north of I-20. The risk looks lower south of I-20. This cluster may develop during the early morning hours in areas to the north of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham.

By the weekend, we’ll notice an uptick in the number of scattered storms once again. I don’t expect an all day rain, but there is a better chance of dealing with a pop up storm.

Join us live on WVUA23 weekdays at 5, 6 and 10:00 P.M. and weekends at 10PM for the very latest on your news, weather and sports.

9am Radar Check, Heavy Rain in West AL, moving East… #alwx @wvua23

At 9:15am, a heavy band of rain and thunder is slowly moving east, into west AL. Rain rates are high with this line, and this could lead to some isolated flooding, especially west of Jasper, Tuscaloosa and Greensboro over the next few hours.

Keep that umbrella handy today! Most widespread rain today will be west of I-65.
