Scattered Showers/Storms Becoming More Numerous

| July 12, 2018 @ 5:51 am

MOISTURE LEVELS RISING: Models continue to show an increase in precipitable water values across Alabama in coming days, and accordingly we expect to see an increase in the number of showers and thunderstorms through the weekend. Most of the showers will come from 1:00 until 11:00 p.m. daily, but in this kind of airmass we can’t totally rule out a late night or morning shower in spots. The chance of any one spot getting wet later today is in the 40/50 percent range, then rising to 60/70 percent tomorrow, Saturday, and Sunday.
