Midday Nowcast: Storms Moving In And Could Pack A Punch

| 12:27 pm July 14, 2016

simuawips

AT THIS HOUR: For pretty much the northern half of the state, skies are generally clear, except for a big mass of clouds moving into the northwestern corner of the state. For the southern half, mostly clear skies with a few cumulus clouds floating around.

radar

RADAR CHECK: With those clouds up in the northwestern corner of the state, thunderstorms are associated with them. A line of storms are stretching from east-central Kentucky down through central Tennessee, clipping the northwestern corner of Alabama, and rapping around through the northern parts of Mississippi. There are Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in effect for parts of the line in Tennessee, and one in northeastern Mississippi, mostly for damaging straight line wind gusts and quarter-size hail. These storms are currently pushing to the east at 25 MPH. Storms are developing directly in front of the line, and pretty intense lightning is being experienced with these.

Latest complete run of the HRRR has these storms pushing into the western counties of Central Alabama this afternoon around the 2-4PM time frame and into the Birmingham area during the 3-5PM time frame. This is contingent on the line holding together. There is another batch of storms associated with a MCS, back in Oklahoma currently, that may approach the western counties sometime in the 8PM-Midnight time frame.

Isolated showers have formed along and south of the I-20 & I-59 corridor in southwest Alabama. These appear to be stationary, with a slight drift to the south. These look more like your normal summertime showers.

TEMPERATURES AT THIS HOUR: A good range of 80s out there currently, with some stations reporting low 80s, some reporting upper 80s, and most reporting mid 80s. Here is a list of temperature observations from across the state:

Birmingham 86
Tuscaloosa 86
Gadsden 84
Anniston 85
Cullman 83
Decatur 85
Huntsville 87
Muscle Shoals 89
Alexander City 88
Montgomery 87

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR TODAY: Mostly sunny skies for a good while, with showers and thunderstorms likely this afternoon and evening. Some of these storms could pack a punch, and the SPC believes that will be the case. A good bit of central and southern Alabama is defined in “marginal risk,” with the northwestern third of the state in a “slight risk” for severe storms. Damaging winds, some hail, and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning being the main threats. Localized flash flooding with a few of the cells in this line could be possible, as PWAT values are at 1.5 inches. Afternoon highs will be in the low to mid 90s.

CODE GREEN AIR QUALITY: The Air Quality Index for the Birmingham Metropolitan Area will be in the “Code Green” for both ozone and particulate matter 2.5. No actions to take.

TODAY’S CLIMATOLOGY FOR BIRMINGHAM: The normal high for July 14th is 91, while the normal low is 70. The record high for today was set back in 1980 at 103. The record low was set back in 1967 at 57.

FRIDAY’S WEATHER: During the overnight and early morning hours, we could be dealing with what is left of a MCS, so showers and storms are possible before sunrise. After that, a surface front will be just north of here providing low level convergence, so numerous showers and thunderstorms can be expected. The northern third of the state has been defined in a “marginal risk” for severe storms tomorrow, so some of these could pack a punch. Chances are about 50/50 on any one spot receiving rainfall. Afternoon highs will be held back into the upper 80s to just over 90 due to clouds and rain.

HEADED TO THE BEACH: Very routine summer weather continues on the coast from Gulf Shores over to Panama City Beach through next week. About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily, and yes, you will deal with a passing storm from time to time. Highs 87-90 on the immediate coast, with low to mid 90s inland. Sea water temperatures are mostly in the upper 80s. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

THE TROPICS: The Atlantic basin remains very quiet, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the next five days.

Showers And Storms Increase Tomorrow/Saturday

| 6:13 am July 14, 2016

MUGGY SUMMER MORNING: Temperatures are in the 70s across most of Alabama this morning, nothing showing up on radar at daybreak. Today will be very similar to yesterday; hot, humid, partly sunny, and a few scattered storms around this afternoon and early tonight. The high today will be in the low 90s, and the chance of any one spot getting wet is about one in four.

To the north, a surface front will be getting closer, and a few storms over far North Alabama could pack a punch. SPC has the Tennessee Valley in a “marginal risk” for severe storms…

AL_swody1

TOMORROW/SATURDAY: With the surface front just north of here providing low level convergence, we expect scattered to numerous showers and storms. The chance of any one spot getting wet is 50/50 both days, and while most of the showers will come during the afternoon and evening hours, we can’t rule out some rain during the late night and morning hours. Also, a few strong storms are possible; SPC has about the northern third of the state in a “marginal risk” tomorrow.

Highs will be close to 90; some spots won’t get out of the 80s because of clouds and showers.

SUNDAY: Showers and storms thin out; expect a good supply of sunshine with a high up in the mid 90s as heat levels begin to rise.

NEXT WEEK: An intense upper high will form over the southern plains, and while Alabama will be on the periphery of that heat bubble, no doubt our afternoons will be pretty hot. Some places, especially over Northwest Alabama, could see 100 degree heat toward the end of next week. Thunderstorms will be possible next week, but they should be pretty widely scattered. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily, and yes, you will deal with a passing storm from time to time. Highs 87-90 on the immediate coast, with low to mid 90s inland.

Scattered Storms Forming

| 3:28 pm July 13, 2016

RADAR CHECK: As expected, storms are more widely scattered across Alabama this afternoon… but some are strong, producing heavy rain and lots of lightning as they drift eastward…

Screen Shot 2016-07-13 at 3.14.01 PM

Showers and storms will dissipate later this evening after the sun sets.

The weather won’t change much tomorrow; hot and humid, partly sunny, a few scattered afternoon thunderstorms. The high will be in the low 90s in most places.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: We should see an increase in the coverage of scattered showers and storms Friday and Saturday thanks to a weak surface boundary stalling out just north of the state. Any one spot stands about a 50/50 chance of getting wet both days, with the best chance of showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. Storms will be a little more widely spaced Sunday. Highs will be close to 90 Friday and Saturday, and up in the low to mid 90s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: A strong upper high is forecast to develop northwest of Alabama (6000 meter heights at 500 mb), setting up a pretty nasty heat wave there. Alabama will be on the periphery of the heat bubble, but still we could see afternoon temperatures approaching 100 degrees toward the end of the week with showers and storms becoming rather isolated due to the warm air aloft. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

KBHM_2016071300_eps_min_max_15

TROPICS: All remains quiet across the Atlantic basin; tropical storm formation is not expected through the week.

AT THE BEACH: A thunderstorm produced multiple waterspouts at Navarre Beach this afternoon…

spiergraham_2016-Jul-13

But, the sky is mostly sunny in most other coastal communities. Not much change through the weekend from Panama City Beach over to Gulf Shores… 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily with a passing storm from time to time. Highs 87-90 on the immediate coast, with low to mid 90s inland. Sea water temperatures are mostly in the upper 80s. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

Midday Nowcast: A Carbon Copy Forecast

| 12:02 pm July 13, 2016

simuawips

A carbon copy forecast? Why would I say that? The best answer is that a typical summertime forecast for Central Alabama will sound like a broken record, or someone just copying and pasting a previous forecast, its nearly the same everyday. In Alabama, you can almost guarantee that everyday will be hot, humid, and have a small chance of a scattered afternoon shower or thunderstorm. Highs will range in the 90s with overnight lows in the 70s. We will have a few occasions where drier conditions will move in with a ridge, but with that will usually come oppressive heat (upper 90s to low 100s). Sometimes we could get a brief cool down and have a day or two in the upper 80s. But for most summertime days in Central Alabama, you’ll get the carbon copy forecast… and that’s what you have for today.

AT THIS HOUR: Mostly clear skies out there with a few cumulus clouds floating around not only for Central Alabama, but for the entire southeast. Cloud cover is heaviest along the Gulf Coasts of Alabama and western Florida and there is a good reason for that.

RADAR CHECK: For areas north of the I-85 and U.S. 80 corridor, the radar is clear at this time. South of that, isolated showers and a few storms have developed over the southwestern counties of the state and just north of the beaches of the Gulf Coast stretching from Grand Bay, AL eastward to Apalachicola.

TEMPERATURES AT THIS HOUR: All of Central Alabama is up in the mid to upper 80s for current temperatures. Here is a list of temperature observations from across the state:

Birmingham 84
Tuscaloosa 84
Gadsden 83
Anniston 83
Cullman 81
Decatur 83
Huntsville 85
Muscle Shoals 87
Alexander City 88
Montgomery 87

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR TODAY: Mostly sunny skies with a small risk for scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Storms should be fewer in number today as the upper trough that has been hanging around near the area has dissipated. Afternoon highs will be in the low 90s. The chance of any one spot getting rain today is about one in four.

CODE YELLOW AIR QUALITY: The Air Quality Index for the Birmingham Metropolitan Area will be in the “Code Yellow” for particulate matter 2.5. Unusually sensitive people should consider limiting prolonged outdoor exertion.

TODAY’S CLIMATOLOGY FOR BIRMINGHAM: The normal high for July 13th is 91, while the normal low is 70. The record high for today was set back in 1980 at 106. The record low was set back in 1918 at 60.

THURSDAY’S WEATHER: Same story as today, just a tad warmer. Mostly sunny skies with a small risk of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs in the low to mid 90s.

HEADED TO THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine can be expected daily from Fort Morgan all the way over to Panama City Beach through the weekend. Just the normal risk of a passing thunderstorm each day, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 on the coast, with low to mid 90s inland. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

THE TROPICS: The tropical Atlantic is quiet for now, with no new tropical cyclone development expected during the next five days.

Hot, Humid, A Few Afternoon Storms

| 6:24 am July 13, 2016

TYPICAL MID-SUMMER WEATHER CONTINUES: Hot, humid summer weather continues across the great state of Alabama today. Lots of sun this morning, scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. I do think the storms will be fewer in number today as the upper low/trough that has been around the region has pretty much dissipated. Chance of any one spot getting wet will be about one in four, and the high will be in the low 90s.

Not much change tomorrow; a few scattered afternoon and evening storms with a high in the 92-95 degree range.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: A weak surface boundary will approach from the north, and the coverage of scattered showers and storms should be a little higher Friday and Saturday. Still, the overall idea remains the same. Mixed sun and clouds, scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms, highs generally in the low 90s. Maybe mid 90s in spots Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Global models continue to show a nasty heat wave developing over the Central U.S…

gfs_z500a_conus_41

Thankfully Alabama will be on the periphery of this, but still I think we will see rising heat levels, and fewer showers and storms due to warmer air aloft. The Tennessee Valley could see 100 degree heat by the middle and end of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

KBHM_2016071300_eps_min_max_15

TROPICS: Tropical storm formation is not expected across the Atlantic basin anytime soon with dry air from the African deserts in place.

AT THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine each day from Panama City Beach over to Gulf Shores through the weekend, with a passing storm from time to time. Highs 87-90 on the immediate coast, with low to mid 90s inland. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

Scattered Summer Storms

| 3:33 pm July 12, 2016

RADAR CHECK: Another afternoon of scattered showers and thunderstorms across Alabama. Heavier storms are capable of producing some hail and strong, gusty winds, and they all have very frequent lightning…

Screen Shot 2016-07-12 at 3.26.39 PM

These storms will die down later tonight, once the sun goes down.

TOMORROW/THURSDAY: Not much change, although I do think storms will be fewer in number on these days as the upper trough just north of our state dissipates. Partly sunny, hot, humid days with a few afternoon thunderstorms in scattered spots; highs 91-95.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Pretty much the same story, although showers and storms should increase a bit on these three days with a weak surface front approaching from the north. Still, they will be scattered, and days will feature a mix of sun and clouds with highs generally in the low 90s.

NEXT WEEK: Global models continue to show potential for some nasty heat developing northwest of Alabama thanks to a strong upper high, but we will be only on the periphery of that, so our weather won’t change much, and we expect more classic summer weather with a mix of sun and scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs in the 90s.

KBHM_2016071200_eps_min_max_15

TROPICS: Dry air covers much of the tropical Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected anytime soon.

AT THE BEACH: As is usually the case this time of the year, a passing shower or storm will happen from time to time, but we expect about 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily through the weekend from Gulf Shores over to Panama City Beach. Highs on the immediate coast in the 87-90 degree range, with low to mid 90s inland. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

Midday Nowcast: Typical Summertime Pattern Returns to Central Alabama

| 12:37 pm July 12, 2016

vis0

AT THIS HOUR: Mostly clear skies out there at this time across Central Alabama, with a few cumulus clouds floating around. Believe it or not, we do have a few isolated showers hidden in the area, with storms across the beaches and the southwestern counties of the state.

Untitled

RADAR CHECK: Currently, most of the shower and thunderstorm activity is located down in the south and southwestern parts of the state, with heavy rain and frequent cloud-to-ground lightning. Back up in our area of the state, a few isolated showers have developed in the western part of the state, mainly in Tuscaloosa, Pickens, Greene, and Sumter counties. A few more isolated showers have developed in the central parts of the state as well, mainly in Chilton, Coosa, and Elmore counties. All of these showers were moving off to the northeast.

TEMPERATURES AT THIS HOUR: All of Central Alabama is up in the mid to upper 80s for current temperatures. Here is a list of temperature observations from across the state:

Birmingham 88
Tuscaloosa 85
Gadsden 84
Anniston 86
Cullman 85
Decatur 88
Huntsville 89
Muscle Shoals 76
Alexander City 88
Montgomery 89

WHAT TO EXPECT FOR TODAY: Back to a typical mid-July summertime forecast for the area. Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies, with the risk of scattered afternoon and evening showers and storms. Afternoon highs will be in the low 90s with a few spots reaching the mid 90s. Odds for any one location getting rain today is about 1 in 4, and the best chance will be from now until 8PM tonight.

CODE GREEN AIR QUALITY: The Air Quality Index for the Birmingham Metropolitan Area will be in the “Code Green” for both ozone and particulate matter 2.5. No action needed today.

TODAY’S CLIMATOLOGY FOR BIRMINGHAM: The normal high for July 12th is 90, while the normal low is 70. The record high for today was set back in 1930 at 106. The record low was set back in 1975 at 58.

WEDNESDAY’S WEATHER: Not much change in the forecast from today to tomorrow. Partly to mostly cloudy skies with the risk of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Afternoon highs will be in the low 90s with a few spots reaching the mid 90s.

HEADED TO THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine can be expected daily from Fort Morgan all the way over to Panama City Beach through the weekend. Just the normal risk of a passing thunderstorm each day, with highs in the upper 80s to near 90 on the coast, with low to mid 90s inland. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.

Sun, Heat, Storms

| 6:18 am July 12, 2016

MUST BE JULY IN ALABAMA: Weather maps this morning are showing the classic July pattern. The main band of westerly winds aloft, or what most call the “jet stream”, is over the far northern part of the continental U.S., and down our way we have an upper ridge in place. There is a weak upper trough over Tennessee that is in the process of losing it’s identity. This will mean standard mid-summer weather for our state through the rest of the week. A good supply of morning sunshine, followed by scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Best chance of a passing storm will come from about 2:00 until 8:00 p.m., and the chance of any one spot getting wet is in the 25-30 percent range. Afternoon highs will be mostly in the 90-93 degree range, right at seasonal averages.

THE WEEKEND: Some chance the coverage of scattered storms will be a tad higher by Friday and the weekend thanks to a weak surface boundary north of us, but the overall idea remains the same. Partly sunny, hot, humid days with mostly afternoon and evening showers and storms in scattered spots. Highs remain between 90 and 93 degrees. We just don’t have big weather changes this time of the year unless there is a tropical system involved.

NEXT WEEK: Global models continue to strongly suggest a nasty 6000 meter 500 mb upper high will form over the center of the nation, representing some big time heat. Thankfully we will be just on the periphery of that upper high, meaning the weather probably won’t change much. Hot, humid days, scattered showers and storms. Highs mostly in the 90s. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

KBHM_2016071200_eps_min_max_15

TROPICS: A large mass of dry air coming off the Africa deserts covers the Atlantic basin, meaning tropical storm formation isn’t expected anytime soon.

AT THE BEACH: About 7 to 9 hours of sunshine daily on the coast from Panama City Beach over to Gulf Shores through the weekend, with the continued chance of a passing thunderstorm from time to time. Highs 87-90 on the immediate coast, with low to mid 90s inland. See a very detailed Gulf Coast forecast here.
