Showers In North Alabama At Midday, Some Strong Storms Possible This Afternoon & Evening

| May 15, 2019 @ 11:45 am

At 11:20 AM, all of Central Alabama was free from any shower activity at the moment, but the central parts of North Alabama have some shower activity sweeping through. Showers are moving to the southeast and will move into the northern parts of Cullman County and eventually into the northeastern parts of Central Alabama in a few hours if it holds together.

Where the rain is not affecting the state, skies are mostly clear. Temperatures in Central Alabama are in the 70s. The cool spot is Cullman at 70 degrees while the warm spot is Uniontown at 78 degrees. Birmingham was at 72 degrees.

WEATHER FOR THE REST OF YOUR WEDNESDAY

Skies will be mostly sunny for a while across Central Alabama, but eventually, we’ll have a disturbance move through the northern 2/3rds of the area that will bring clouds and the chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms for the afternoon and evening hours. Most stay dry, but where they do form over the northwestern parts of the area, they could be strong with the potential for gusty winds and small hail. SPC has a marginal risk up for the extreme northwestern parts of the area and up into western parts of North Alabama. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 70s to the lower 80s. We’ll continue to have a chance of lingering isolated showers across the northern half of the area, while the southern half stays dry. Lows will be in the upper 50s to the lower 60s.

ISOLATED SHOWERS REMAIN POSSIBLE ON THURSDAY
The disturbance to our north will continue to send a chance of isolated showers and thunderstorms through Central Alabama on Thursday, especially during the daylight hours. Where it’s not raining, skies will be mostly clear to partly cloudy. Highs will top out in the lower to mid-80s. Looks like we’ll dry out for Thursday night with clearing skies and lows in the lower to mid-60s.
