Central AL Forecast: Numerous Showers and Storms Wednesday. Some strong.


I am tracking the last of tonight’s rain and storms. We should become a bit more quiet closer to midnight. We will get a rain break from about 12am-6am. Another round of storms could start early Wednesday morning, around sunrise in north Alabama.

Wednesday into Thursday will be active as well with rain once again in the forecast. More flow from the south with more heat will once again combine for a good smattering of summer-time showers and storms. Temperatures will rise to the upper 80s and low 90s, mainly depending on who sees the rain and when, as the warmest spots will avoid seeing the showers and storms all together. Thursday will be more active because of an upper-level low pressure area spinning to our east. Thankfully, this pattern doesn’t persist into the end of the week and weekend ahead. 

While the Fourth of July weekend won’t be a complete washout, it won’t be completely dry either. We’ll have updates to the forecast as we get closer, but it looks like a weekend where you can make some plans outside, but have a back-up plan just in case weather threatens.
