Quiet Afternoon; Higher Coverage Of Storms Tomorrow Over Southwest Alabama

2 min read

RADAR CHECK: Most of Alabama is dry this afternoon; we note a band of strong thunderstorms approaching the Gulf Coast from the north. A few isolated showers could form this evening, but most places will be rain-free through tonight. Temperatures this afternoon are mostly in the mid to upper 80s with a mix of sun and clouds.

TOMORROW: The higher coverage of showers and storms across Alabama tomorrow will most likely be over the southwest part of the state, where SPC has defined a “slight risk” (level 2/5) of severe thunderstorms due to the potential for hail and strong winds. Activity will be more scattered in nature over the rest of the state during the afternoon and evening hours.

Otherwise, look for a partly sunny sky tomorrow with a high in the mid to upper 80s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We are looking at some pretty routine summer weather over the weekend. Partly sunny, humid days with random, scattered showers and storms around mostly during the afternoon and evening hours (2-10 p.m.). Chance of any one spot getting wet both days is 20-30 percent, and you can expect a high in the upper 80s Saturday, and close to 90 Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: It looks like the hottest week so far this year with highs in the low to mid 90s each day. There is always the risk of a pop up storm during the heat of the day, but they should be few and far between thanks to the subsidence associated with the ridge. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: All remains very quiet across the Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the weekend.
