RIGHT NOW: What’s left of Barry is continuing to track Northward through Arkansas. The storm is now a tropical depression and still producing persistent heavy rainfall to our West in Louisiana & Mississippi. We’re just barely getting some of that moisture in West Alabama this morning as light rain falls in our Western Counties. Most of us are waking up to dry conditions and cloudy skies this morning.
TODAY: For most of the day today, expect to see mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures will be warm & near average for mid-July…daytime highs expected near 90°. We also have a decent chance of seeing scattered showers & a few storms late this afternoon and into the early evening. Areas West of I-65 have the best chance of seeing rain today…putting our chances at 40%.
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 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 will come in the form of pop-up showers. Day-by-day rain chances moving back & forth between 20 & 30%. The summer heat will crank up a bit Wednesday & Thursday…highs will climb up into the mid 90s. Stay cool!!
