Storms For Saturday Afternoon

| July 15, 2017 @ 1:01 pm

Through the morning hours we were dealing with fog and some showers, but now we are starting to see more sun and that is allowing those temperatures to climb.

There is a weak frontal boundary that will ever so slowly drop south through the state later today and it will be providing just enough uplift enhancement to allow for more numerous showers and storms as we head through the rest of the afternoon and into the evening hours. Actually, going to keep rain chances higher into overnight as well, but most activity will end by midnight or so with just lingering showers through the early morning hours

We are also starting to see those afternoon storms developing and these will be lasting for the rest of today. The front is over Tennessee early this afternoon, and with it are numerous showers and storms heading south. In Alabama, strong storms are impacting extreme Northeast Alabama, while in the Tennessee Valley, storms are moving through Lauderdale County and also areas around Huntsville .

In Central Alabama a few storms are bubbling up and will gradually increase in coverage through the afternoon. Storms are not expected to be severe today, but will certainly pack a punch with tremendous amounts of lightning, gusty winds, intense rainfall, and even some small hail. Of course, we can not completely rule out a rouge severe storm, but most should remain below the severe threshold.

STORMS SHIFTING SOUTH SUNDAY: With very little forcing in the upper-levels, the front is going to be still over central portions of Alabama tomorrow. It should push the higher rain chances to southern portions of the state, but we are still going to see rain and storms tomorrow. For our Sunday, expect a few morning showers to be possible, but most of us should be seeing a mix of sun and clouds. By early afternoon, the radar lights up with scattered afternoon storms. Depending on the amount of sun your location sees, highs will range from the upper 80s to lower 90s.
