A Few Scattered Showers Out There At Midday: Temperatures Have Flip-Flopped

| June 14, 2018 @ 12:38 pm

Looking at the latest radar image as of 12:16 PM, much of North and Central Alabama is dry at this point, with the only shower activity showing up mainly in the south-central parts of the area, with a couple more showing up east of those. The heaviest rainfall is over much of Chilton County and stretching back into parts of Bibb and Perry counties. These are moving to the south.

Temperatures are warmer in the northern half of the area thanks to more sunshine and less rain, running in the lower to mid-80s, with the warm spot of Tuscaloosa being the only station reporting in the upper 80s. The southern half is in the upper 70s to the lower 80s.

We’ll continue with partly to mostly cloudy skies with afternoon highs in the mid-80s to the lower 90s from south to north. All of North and Central Alabama has a chance for some scattered afternoon and evening showers and storms, but the greater risk will be in the southern half of the area. Tonight, we’ll have a few showers linger into the late night and into the overnight hours, but most of the activity will diminish after we lose the heating of the day. Some dense fog is possible and an advisory may be issued during the overnight hours. Lows will dip down into the lower to mid-70s.

TYPICAL SUMMERTIME PATTERN ON FRIDAY
We’re back to a more typical summertime weather pattern tomorrow, with hot, hazy, and humid conditions and the chance of a scattered afternoon shower or storm. The chance of rain in the northern half of Central Alabama will be around 20%, while the southern half will range from 30%-50%. Skies will be mostly cloudy, but the sun make break through at times. Afternoon highs will be up in the upper 80s to the mid-90s.

AN UPDATE ON THE TROPICS

This system is expected to move generally west-northwestward over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico today through Saturday. Development, if any, of this disturbance should be slow to occur due to strong upper-level winds. No threat to the US at this point.
