Sevenday_640 (7).JPG

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather has been hot again today, with highs generally in the middle to upper 90s across the state. Only a few tiny showers popped up this afternoon over east Alabama, but most didn’t get a drop. Temperatures tonight will slowly drop into the 70s, with a muggy feel to the air.

A few scattered storms will be possible on Thursday, mainly after lunch. The chance of any one spot getting rain is at 30%.

A weak surface front will approach from the northwest on Friday and Saturday, allowing for the risk of scattered storms to really increase. I don’t expect an all day rain, but you’ll need to keep the umbrella nearby over the weekend. Temperatures will drop into the upper 80s over the weekend with extra clouds and occasional storms.

Hot for Now… Scattered Storms Increasing This Week… Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Update – 5pm #alwx @wvua23

fgae3.pngGood Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather started off mild. With lots of sunshine, temperatures warmed quickly into the lower to middle 90s. Dewpoints are a tad lower today, which allows the humidity to decrease some. Don’t get use to that because moisture levels will increase over the next couple of days.

Rain chances will remain low for Wednesday, but I can’t rule out an isolated shower or storm. Highs will reach the middle to upper 90s.

A weak surface front will approach from the northwest and stall out on Thursday and Friday. We can expect an uptick in the number of scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. It won’t rain all day or everywhere, but there will be a better chance of you seeing a passing storm. The best chance of seeing a passing shower or storm begins on Thursday and continues through the weekend.

A weak surface front will approach from the northwest and stall out on Thursday and Friday.

Temperatures are on the rise for this week! Sunday Eve. Forecast Update – #alwx @wvua23

QftkCvR3.jpg

Good Sunday evening, everyone! We had another hot day here in central Alabama. Most places topping out into the low 90s. Some spots even saw a passing thunderstorm or shower today. Tonight remains mild and muggy with low temperatures into the 70s. Patchy fog is also possible.

For Monday, the start of a new work week, expect a mostly sunny sky, with the chance for an isolated thunderstorm or shower. Some spots will remain dry though. Highs will top out into the low 90s.

Heat indices will reach into the 100s as we move into the latter portion of the week. Wednesday’s high looks to reach around 95! The latter portion of the week is when the rain chances will start to increase, and rain chances will carry over into the weekend, along with the heat.

Few Isolated Storms Ahead… Hot Temps! Saturday Eve Forecast Update – #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Saturday evening! It turned out to be a hot day again, with many areas in the lower to middle 90s. Conditions remain mild and muggy tonight. Look for a overnight low in the low 70s.

Sunday and Monday will feature hot and humid days. Highs will warm into the lower 90s, with a heat index nearing 100. The chance of a stray shower or storm will continue during the afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday, but I don’t expect a widespread rain; in-fact, most areas will be dry.

A new upper air trough and weak surface front will approach by Thursday through Saturday of next week, which will help to bring a higher chance of scattered showers and storms. Keep in mind, it will not rain all day, but the umbrella may be needed from time to time.

Hot Weekend Ahead… Few Pop Up PM Storms… Friday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather turned out hot for the northern half of Alabama, with mostly dry conditions north of I-20 for much of the day. At 5pm, scattered showers and storms have developed over west Alabama near Tuscaloosa and area drifting southeast. Scattered storms will fade away after sunset, with mild and muggy conditions overnight.

Saturday will be a mostly dry and hot day, with highs in the lower 90s. Heat index will approach 100 Saturday afternoon. I can’t rule out a stray shower or storm, but widespread rain is unlikely. Expect more sunshine than cloud cover on Saturday.

Sunday, rain chances will increase just a bit, but I do not expect a major rain event. Scattered downpours will be most likely during the afternoon and evening hours. This forecast will carry into Monday as well, with a few scattered PM storms.

Tuesday and Wednesday will feature mostly dry conditions.

Scattered Storms on Friday… Hot Weekend Ahead… Thursday Eve Forecast Update – #alwx @wvua23

afa2323aa.pngGood Thursday evening! Our local weather turned out hot and humid today, with a good number of storms sweeping across the area. Rain and storms have moved on this evening, but there is a chance additional storms could re-fire over northwest Alabama after 3am. Don’t be surprised if we wake up to a few storms passing through, especially northwest of I-59.

Scattered storms remain a good possibility for our Friday, especially south of I-20 during the afternoon. Expect a high in the upper 80s on Friday.

The weekend, upper air ridging will rebuild into the area. Highs will top out in the lower 90s, with a heat index nearing 100. The risk of storms will decrease to 30% on Saturday and Sunday.

A secondary front will arrive on Monday, with a 50% risk of scattered storms. Drier air will then take over by Tuesday through Thursday, with only a small chance of an isolated afternoon storm.
