Heavy rain is dotting the radar right now. some of these storms are producing downpours and localized flooding. Minor ponding on roadways. if you arrive at a spot in the road covered with water, as we say in the weather world, “Turn Around Don’t Drown”. These storms will persist through sunset and few may linger as late 10 tonight. Flood advisories in effect for counties south of our viewing.

Tonight: we will become partly cloudy and it will stay muggy with lows in the 70s.

Wednesday: puts the lowest pressure over us and keeps the humidity high. It will help to set off scattered showers and storms across Central Alabama on Wednesday. It will be hot and humid with highs around 90° and the heat index 100-104°.

The weather pattern does not change much to end the work week. We will still have those pesky afternoon thunderstorms that will bubble up quickly. Some could produce downpours while others

Friday will have a little less rain with just a few pop-up afternoon storms. Highs will stay in the lower 90s and the heat index will be around 100-105°.

Weekend Outlook: Alabama will remain between the two ridges, so we will have more typical summer weather. Each day will be partly cloudy, hot and humid with scattered afternoon storms. High temperatures will be in the lower 90s and the heat index around 100-105°.

Tropical Update: Although the tropics are quiet and we shouldn’t see any development within the next severla days, we don’t want to grow too comfortable. It has been 30 days since we have had a named storm. Last year, we went 33 days without a storm, and do you remember how active things got after that?!
Right now, no activity is in the Gulf or Atlantic.
