Weather AWARE: Prepare for popup showers with heavy rainfall possible

(WIAT) -  

Showers and thunderstorms producing heavy rain, lightning, gusty wind and some small hail are still hanging around Central Alabama. These storms are still packing a punch this evening and will slowly dissipate through the rest of the night. By midnight, most of the rain should be done and we'll see a mostly cloudy sky after that with temps dropping to the upper 60s by tomorrow morning. 

Thursday will see the best rain chances and the most widespread coverage of rain as our upper level trough and surface low, the two systems driving our rain chances, moves slowly north. Expect more of the same, showers and thunderstorms, moving in for the late morning and early afternoon and lingering into the evening hours.

We will see a slight shift in our pattern on Friday, with the upper level trough of low pressure moving east, taking with it our widespread rain chances and leaving more scattered showers. Even better, it looks like Saturday will be mostly dry with isolated showers and thunderstorms. Sunday unstable air starts to pour back into Central Alabama and rain chances will head back into the scattered category, lasting into the work week ahead.
