Decent But Warm Day Across Central Alabama At Midday

| May 19, 2017 @ 11:58 am

As we are approaching the midday hour across Central Alabama, everyone in the area is above the 80 degree mark, with mostly clear skies out there. We do have one stray shower out there over the western part of Dallas County and the extreme southern part of Perry County. This shower is currently moving to the north.

With the heating of the day, we’ll have a few more convective clouds form making the sky partly cloudy, but most locations in Central Alabama will remain dry. The best chance for isolated showers or storms during the afternoon hours will be in the extreme southwestern parts of the area, along with the extreme north to northeastern parts of the area. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 80s to the lower 90s. Odds for any one place getting rain today will be near 1 in 5. Those shower chances will decrease quickly during the early evening hours, and skies will be mostly clear during the overnight hours. Lows will be in the mid 60s to the lower 70s across the area.

NAM-3k Simulated Radar at 4PM Saturday

Saturday will feature a likely chance of scattered afternoon showers and thunderstorms, with heavy downpours at times. Coverage of these storms will be greater, but it will not be an all-day washout. Latest run of the NAM-3k is showing a pretty active afternoon with storms across Central Alabama. If you’re out at the Regions Classic, you may have to deal with some storms at times. Stay aware and heed the warnings from the officials out there at Greystone. When it’s not raining, skies will be mostly cloudy, and highs will be in the mid to upper 80s.
