RADAR CHECK: Most of the showers and storms across the northern half of Alabama are east of I-65 this afternoon… they are showing little movement, and will fade away once the sun goes down later this evening. Otherwise, we have a mix of sun and clouds with temperatures not as hot as recent days… generally between 85 and 90 degrees. The average high at Birmingham for September 21 is 84 degrees.

A Few Widely Scattered Storms Around This Weekend

A Few Widely Scattered Storms Around This Weekend

| September 21, 2018 @ 6:00 am

The upper high responsible for the late season heat wave will weaken a bit and drift to the east over the next few days; we project highs today and over the weekend in the 87-91 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds. And, with the air becoming a little more unstable the door is open for a few widely scattered showers and storms each day through Sunday.

| September 20, 2018 @ 5:49 am

TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: The upper high weakens a bit, the air aloft becomes a little colder, and moisture levels rise. We will bring in the potential for random, scattered showers and thunderstorms, mostly from 1:00 until 11:00 p.m. on these three days. Odds of any one place seeing a shower each day is 30 to 40 percent, and highs will be in 87 to 90 degree range.

HOT: Birmingham’s high as of 3:15 this afternoon was 96 degrees… making this the second hottest day so far this summer. We reached 97 on September 15, the hottest summer day on the books for this year. The sky is sunny, and bone crushing subsidence (sinking air) under an upper high has put a lid on showers over the northern half of the state. Even down in South Alabama we are seeing only isolated thunderstorms.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: The upper ridge weakens a bit, and as moisture levels rise we will bring “scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms” back into the forecast on these three days. Chance of any one specific location seeing rain is in the 30/40 percent range; otherwise partly sunny days, fair nights, and highs in the upper 80s. The scattered afternoon showers won’t offer widespread rain, but some communities will see a good downpour.

HOT SEPTEMBER DAYS: Summer will officially end Saturday at 8:54 pm CT… the autumnal equinox. And a summer pattern sure doesn’t want to let go; we will have hot weather through the rest of the week with highs in the low 90s through Thursday. Mostly sunny days, fair nights, and only very isolated afternoon showers for the northern two-thirds of the state. Odds of any one spot getting wet through Thursday will remain in the 5-10 percent range.
