More Rain Now, Cool Dry Conditions Ahead. Sunday Forecast update 7pm @wvua23 #alwx

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngHappy Sunday! Showers and thunderstorms are still popping up around central Alabama right now but most are moving through areas quickly and will start to diminish for the night tonight.

Lows this evening will drop into the low 70s but with dewpoints also in the low 70s it will remain muggy and dewy for the night and early morning tomorrow. Monday will see more showers here in the state with highs still below our average for this time of year in the upper 80s flirting with the 90s. Shower and storms will be possible in the more afternoon hours as well as overnight.

Monday night into Tuesday early morning a cold front will move through central Alabama. This will increase rain chances overnight Monday and showers and storms will be possible for your day on Tuesday as well.

Behind this cold front temperatures will cool down and only touch in the mid 80s Tuesday and Wednesday. Conditions will also start to dry out in Alabama on Wednesday and Thursday, giving you the perfect afternoons to enjoy the day outside with cooler temperatures and plenty of sunshine.

Moisture returns back into the state on Friday as southerly flow from the Gulf sweeps in bringing rain chances back into the forecast for your weekend.

Rain Continues, Cooler Days Ahead! Saturday forecast update 4pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOW.pngWell the day started off wet here in central Alabama with showers and thunderstorms. Highs today hitting only 80 here in Tuscaloosa, but 91 in Bham, 93 in Jasper, and 78 in Demopolis! This is because some areas in more southwest Alabama are seeing more cloud cover and rain.

Tonight a few showers and storms will linger and begin to die off. This won’t last long as more rain is possible for the day tomorrow. By Monday a cold front will be creeping our way and finally reach us Monday night into Tuesday. This front will bring more widespread rain Monday evening and possibly Tuesday, as well as finally giving us some relief from this heat! Highs Tuesday will only reach into the low 80s and we will stay below our average high temperature for July ALL WEEK!!! The average high for this time of year is 93 and we won’t touch into the 90s for the next 7 days.

So far since the beginning of summer on June 21st, we have only hit in the 80s as our high temperature 3 times! We will hit in the 80s as highs all week long.

After the cold front pushes south of us Tuesday, conditions will dry out Wednesday and Thursday. These will be perfect days to enjoy outside with mostly sunny skies and not as oppressive temperatures like we’ve been experiencing.

High Rain Chances Ahead… Friday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (16).jpg

Good Friday afternoon! We’ve had a good number of storms on radar across central Alabama today. Not everyone has picked up rain today, but this marks the beginning of an unsettled pattern through Tuesday.

The weekend will feature an even higher number of scattered storms. I don’t expect an all day rain, but there is a better chance of dealing with a pop up storm. With the weak uplift and tropical moisture, a few storms are possible overnight and during the morning hours as well. Keep the umbrella handy at all times.

There is some evidence a surface front will bring a good chance of showers and storms Tuesday of next week. Rain amounts will vary drastically, but most spots should pick up between 1 and 2 inches over the next 5 days. Temperatures will drop back into the 80s this weekend and early next week.

Drier air may try to slip in here by Tuesday night and Wednesday of next week. This may even include cooler overnight temperatures.

Heat index values have surpassed the 100 degree mark and remain above 100 as of 4pm. Expect a mild and muggy evening, due to the higher dewpoints.

Hot Days… Scattered Storms Ahead… Tuesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (13)

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather turned out hot today, with heat index values in the low 100s. A few scattered storms are impacting northwest Alabama as of 4pm, and these storms may drift as far south as I-59 before fizzling out after sunset. Temperatures will dip into the lower to middle 70s overnight.

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.

The rain chance will decrease on Thursday, with hot weather. Highs will reach the lower to middle 90s, with a heat index approaching 105.

By Friday and 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. There is some evidence a surface front will bring a good chance of showers and storms Tuesday of next week..

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.
