Central AL Forecast: Barry now a post-tropical cyclone


RIGHT NOW: What’s left of Barry is continuing to track Northward through Arkansas.  The storm is now a post-tropical cyclone and still producing persistent heavy rainfall to our west in Louisiana & Mississippi.  It is very cloudy outside, a result of the tropical moisture streaming in from the Gulf of Mexico. Expect to see scattered tropical downpours through the remainder of the day.

TONIGHT: Those showers & storms should dissipate after sunset and we’ll see a partly cloudy sky overnight into Tuesday.  Temperatures remaining warm…lows in the low 70s.

TOMORROW: We are less likely to see afternoon showers & storms tomorrow compared to today. Rain chance are at only 20%.  Most of us will see mainly sunshine and more summer heat. Highs expected in the low 90s with high humidity.

REST OF THE WEEK: Mainly dry conditions expected for the rest of the week ahead. Any rain that we see will come in the form of pop-up showers.  Day-by-day rain chances moving back & forth between 20 and 30 percent. The summer heat will crank up a bit Wednesday & Thursday. Highs will climb up into the mid 90s.  Stay cool!
