Showers/Storms Most Numerous Over South Alabama Today

| July 18, 2018 @ 6:42 am

ON THE MAPS: A weak surface front is creeping through North Alabama this morning; it represents the leading edge of drier air over Tennessee and Kentucky. The front will stall out around I-20 today, meaning the most numerous showers and storms should be over the southern two-thirds of the state this afternoon. Understand we could see a few showers over North Alabama today as well, but they should be pretty isolated. Otherwise, today will be partly sunny with a high in the low 90s.

RADAR CHECK: The weather is relatively quiet over North/Central Alabama this afternoon thanks to a batch of showers and storms that moved through earlier today. The morning convection left behind rain-cooled, stable air with temperatures in the 70s and 80s.
