Scattered Showers Today; Mostly Dry Tomorrow

| June 10, 2019 @ 5:54 am

A FEW SHOWERS/STORMS LATER TODAY: Moist, tropical air remains over Alabama this morning. We have patches of very dense fog that will dissipate by mid-morning. The radar is quiet at daybreak, but we will forecast scattered showers and thunderstorms by afternoon… odds of any one spot getting wet today are around 40 percent. Otherwise, expect a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the mid 80s. The average high for June 10 at Birmingham is 87.

REST OF THE WEEK: Drier air moves into Alabama tonight, and tomorrow will be a mostly sunny day with lower humidity. The only chance of showers tomorrow will be over the southeast corner of the state, around Dothan and Ozark. The high will be in the low to mid 80s.

Then, on Wednesday, we will mention a chance of showers and thunderstorms by afternoon with a cold front approaching from the north; a few strong storms are possible over the Tennessee Valley. Then, dry and pleasant weather is the story for Thursday and Friday… lots of sunshine both days with lower humidity and cool night for June. Many communities across North/Central Alabama will dip into the 50s early Friday morning.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Saturday will be mostly sunny and warmer with a high in the upper 80s… then on Sunday we will bring back a chance of scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms as moisture levels rise. The high Sunday will be between 87 and 90.

NEXT WEEK: A fairly moist airmass will sit over Alabama for much of the week, meaning the usual risk of afternoon and evening showers and storms in scattered spots… highs will be close to 90 degrees much of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.
