Here we go again. Yet another round of strong to severe storms are in the forecast in the middle of the week. This time, we expect storms to move in Wednesday evening through early Thursday morning.

Stronger storms Wednesday could produce heavy rain, damaging winds, and perhaps tornadoes. While the wind and tornado threat are why we have a Weather Aware in place, heavy rain will be the most widespread impact we feel Wednesday into Wednesday night, with most of us getting between 1-2 inches of rain, with some getting as much as three inches. While only a small handful of us would get what we classify as “severe weather” Wednesday evening, we should all be on guard for the potential for severe weather.

This looks to be yet another overnight event for much of Alabama. Start planning on ways to receive warnings while you sleep, and make sure you have a plan in place if a warning is issued for where you live.

Storms may not begin until the evening, and are likely to continue late into the night, past midnight.

There still remains some uncertainty in both the timing and overall threat these storms will pose, so check back for updates on the forecast over the next few days.

Rest of the Week:

Rain returns Monday, with showers starting in the morning in West Alabama and spreading east through the day. We dry out Monday evening before a few more scattered showers are possible Tuesday. We won’t have any severe weather Monday or Tuesday, but some rumbles of thunder can’t be ruled out.

Temperatures climb into the low 80s ahead of Wednesday’s cold front. Temperatures do back off a bit Thursday and Friday behind the front. Some additional rain is likely Friday evening into Saturday and Sunday.
