Tropical Showers & Storms Affecting Western Parts Of The Area At Midday

| July 15, 2019 @ 11:23 am

At 11:10 am, an outer band from the remnants of Barry is working its way through the extreme western parts of North/Central Alabama, while pretty much the rest of the area is rain free with partly cloudy to mostly clear skies. The heaviest band of rain and storms stretches from Russellville to Carbon Hill to Tuscaloosa to Greensboro. There is very little lightning occurring with this band, but we could see some brief gusty winds and some training of the cells along the band.

At this point, the SPC only has the extreme northwestern parts of the area in a Marginal Risk of severe storms with the threat being the potential of a brief spin-up tornado or two. The higher tornado risks will be west of the state.

So for today, rain activity will range from a very small risk of a few isolated to scattered showers in the east to numerous showers and storms in the west. There will be more clouds than sun for most with afternoon highs ranging in the lower 80s to the mid-90s across the area from northwest to southeast. Once we lose the heating of the day, rain activity across the state will diminish with only a very slight risk of a stray shower or two east of I-65 while there is a chance of showers and storms in the west continuing from Barry’s remnants. Lows will be in the lower to mid-70s.

Much of the area will be much drier as rain chances will be limited to the northern parts of the area north of the I-59 corridor. There is a Marginal Risk of severe storms with the threat being the potential of a brief spin-up tornado or two in the northwestern corner of the state. Where there is no rain, temperatures will get very hot. Highs will reach the upper 80s to the upper 90s across the area from northwest to southeast. While it will remain rather humid, dewpoints will be lower in the southeastern parts of the area which will keep heat indices out of advisory range.
