We will be keeping an eye on a surge of moisture over south Alabama that could bring a few scattered storms and showers after 2PM. The greatest chance for rain will be in locations south of the I-20 corridor and a strong storm can’t be ruled out, with frequent lightning and gusty winds. The motion of the scattered storms will be southeast to northwest. Until then, most areas will continue to experience above average heat levels with highs in the middle 90s. The threat of a shower or storm will decrease late this evening, with lows near 75°.
NEAR AVERAGE HEAT RETURNS: The high pressure ridge responsible for the heat wave will finally weaken some and allow for more clouds and rising rain chances. Temperatures will top out in the upper 80s to low 90s over the next several days, with showers and storms popping up by late morning. The storm threat will linger through at-least 9PM each evening. The showers and storms will remain quite scattered and we will need to keep an eye out for more strong storms in the afternoon hours. I’m also expecting rain chances to remain elevated throughout the upcoming weekend. I will share an updated weekend forecast and also talk more about where we could see pop-up storms at Noon.
