SEVERE T’STORM WATCH UNTIL 2 AM
A Severe Thunderstorm Watch has been issued for North and Central Alabama until 2 AM. Storms will be capable of damaging straight line winds, large hail, frequent lightning, and heavy rain.
WEATHER AWARE SUNDAY
SUNDAY AFTERNOON: Isolated strong to severe storms possible through the afternoon and early evening. Some storms could produce damaging winds and large hail.
SUNDAY NIGHT: Models are in good agreement that one last line of showers and storms moves through Alabama from Northwest to Southeast overnight Sunday night. These storms will be capable of damaging winds, hail, and locally heavy rainfall.
MONDAY: We get one mostly dry day this week. Once lingering showers and storms are gone in the morning, we’ll be dry, partly cloudy, and fairly pleasant with a northwest breeze and highs in the mid to upper 80s.
Flood Threat Tuesday Through Thursday
TUESDAY: Showers and storms move in early Tuesday morning, perhaps before sunrise for some. Off and on showers and storms possible through mid-morning, then more numerous and robust thunderstorms move in Tuesday afternoon into Tuesday night. These storms will be efficient rain producers. Where we see training thunderstorms form, flash flooding will be possible.
WEDNESDAY: Rain and storms will likely be ongoing across parts of Central Alabama from Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. These storms will continue through the day Wednesday, and like Tuesday, will be robust storms and efficient rain producers. Additional flooding is possible through the day where training storms develop. This rain continues into Wednesday night.
THURSDAY: It appears as of now more likely that the quasi-stationary front that will have us in this rainy pattern will sag a bit south towards the southern end of the state starting Thursday afternoon, but we’ll keep mention of at least a few showers and storms in the forecast that could lead to isolated flooding over already water-logged parts of Central Alabama. Better rain chances will exist south of I-20.
FRIDAY & THE WEEKEND: Predictability is a bit low to round out the week, but for now we’ll keep rain chances in a more normal range to round out the week, with high temperatures also closer to normal after taking a bit of a dip due to the rainy mid-week pattern.
