Alabama’s weather will remain messy and unsettled through the next several days
*Radar Check: Areas of patchy heavy rain and storms continues to slowly move northeast across parts of North Alabama this morning. Flooding is possible where the heavier rain is falling.
*You can expect another wet day with periods of off and on rain and storms. It certainly won’t rain every minute of the day, but just understand that it can rain at any given time so don’t be surprised if it starts raining where you are. Some of the heavier storms will have the potential to produce some intense lightning and heavy rain, but they should stay below severe limits as severe weather is not expected in Alabama.
*Rest Of The Week: Not much change in the weather pattern through at least the next 4–5 days as we will continue to see periods of rain and storms. Looks like the rain and storms will become a little more widespread tomorrow and Thursday as a low pressure system moves across the Central United Sates. Bottom line is that you will definitely need to keep the umbrellas handy this week.
*Projected rainfall totals for the next 7 days from the guys at WPC(Weather Prediction Center) shows pretty much all of Alabama receiving around or a little over an inch. Some places could easily exceed 1 inch, but most of you will hover around an inch.
*Tropics Getting Active: The Atlantic Basin has been fairly quiet so far this season due to the El Niño cycle. But a tropical system has formed in the Eastern Atlantic and confidence continues to grow that this will become Tropical Storm or maybe even Hurricane Danny by the end of the week. There is certainly no way to tell if this will have any effect on the United States, but it’s something interesting to watch closely and keep an eye on in coming days. The NHC(National Hurricane Center) will start to issue advisories for the system within the next couple of hours. Remember, we are in the early part of hurricane season so this is typical to start seeing some development.
