Hot, Humid, with Daily Rumbles of Thunder

A stormy Sunday across much of South/Central Alabama. Many areas across the area received much needed rainfall, and some received less than needed.

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR MONDAY: Unsettled weather for another day as a weakness in the upper air pattern is continuing to hover near the area. With a more sun than clouds and thunderstorms expected, temperatures will be held into the lower and mid 90s, verses upper 90s, a little relief from the heat. Unfortunately there will be a risk for a few strong to severe storms out there. The northern three-fourths of the state has been defined in a “Marginal Risk” for severe storms throughout the daytime and evening hours, with the main threats being damaging winds gusts from wet microbursts, very heavy rainfall, and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning. With PWAT values in the 1.5 to 2.0 inch range, rainfall could be heavy and localized areas of flash flooding could be possible.

THE WORK WEEK AND WEEKEND: With the weakness in the upper air pattern expected to start moving off to the east, we will start to shift back into a ridge pattern. Tuesday will still feature the chance for showers and storms for the remainder of the week, as the sky will be partly cloudy and highs back into the mid-90s. Wednesday through Sunday will be more like a typical summertime pattern. With a strengthening ridge off to our west and pushing any disturbances to our north, this will keep any significant rain chances out of the forecast. Each day will feature a mix of sun and clouds with only a small risk of an isolated afternoon shower or storm. Highs will be back up in the mid to upper 90s throughout the work week and weekend.
