WET SUMMER PATTERN: We are forecasting occasional showers and thunderstorms across much of Alabama through Friday as a tropical airmass remains in place, along with a weak upper trough over the region. While most of the rain will come from noon to midnight, there will be some late night and morning activity as well. In fact, rain is falling on parts of Central Alabama early this morning. Showers will be efficient rain producers in this kind of airmass; some communities saw over two inches of rain yesterday.

UNSETTLED SUMMER WEATHER: A broad upper trough will cover the Deep South in coming days, and that, in combination with high precipitable water values, will set the stage for scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms on a daily basis through mid-week. While the radar is quiet this morning, look for lots off activity this afternoon, and the showers and storms that form should be very efficient rain producers. The high today should be in the mid 80s for most communities; the average high for Birmingham on July 28 is 91.
