Isolated Showers/Storms today and tomorrow; Drier by Friday

Radar Check: Not much is happening on radar across Alabama this morning. I do note some areas of patchy rain over far Northeast Alabama. Nothing significant, but some heavy rain is falling there. I promise you the radar will not look this quiet later this afternoon.

*Today: I expect there to be numerous isolated showers/storms this afternoon and evening. Not everyone will see something and the sun will be out most of the day, but as always any given community has a chance to see an afternoon shower or storm so be ready. Notice our friends at SPC(Storm Prediction Center) has a good chunk of North Alabama in a “marginal” risk of severe weather for today. Any storms that form will be strong with the ordinary heavy rain, frequent lightning, and gusty winds. And of course a wet microburst is likely somewhere. Organized severe weather is not expected, but a severe storm or two can’t be ruled out.

*Tomorrow and Friday: A nose of drier air will invade Alabama tomorrow as a surface front lifts up to the North. This will help stable the airmass and decrease the rain chances significantly the next few days. A few showers/storms will still be possible, but they will be random and far and between. Also those temperatures will continue to be around the upper 80s to low 90s as heat levels stay down.

Tropics Update: Ah yes what about Tropical Storm Danny? Well, it is expected to be a category 2 hurricane by sometime tomorrow as it continues to strengthen and track WNW in the Eastern Atlantic. There is still no way to know if this will have any impact to the United States, but it’s something to watch over the next several days. The National Hurricane Center is still in the process of issuing advisories.

I hope everyone has a great day and God Bless!
