Stormy Pattern Ahead This Week…Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (9).jpgGood Sunday evening! Many more showers and storms affected much of the state today, and some packed a punch in several of the western counties including Tuscaloosa, Lamar, and Hale. As we go into the evening hours, expect much of this activity to taper off into more isolated developments. Lows will be in the lower 70s and areas of fog will be developing after midnight.

As we start the work week, expect a bit of that fog to be lingering around during the early morning hours. Highs will remain in the lower 90s and scattered showers and storms will continue. Although rain chances are lower and more widespread across the coverage area, the mid-level dry air could cause these developments to produce heavy lightning and locally intense rainfall.

On Tuesday, rain chances will diminish significantly, so expect drier conditions and a little more sunshine throughout the day. Higher rain chances will be during the overnight hours and into Wednesday, so expect a few more scattered showers and storms during this time frame.

We will continue to trend dry on Thursday and Friday, so expect plenty of more sunshine with highs reaching the lower to mid 90s. As we go into next weekend, rain chances increase slightly again, so expect a bit of more scattered showers and storms.
