At Midday: All Dry Across Central Alabama… For Now

| August 5, 2019 @ 12:42 pm

At 12:15 pm, it is nearly a complete clean sweep on radar across Central Alabama with the exception of a dissipating return over the northern parts of Barbour County. Temperatures are in the upper 70s to the upper 80s across the area. Birmingham was at 82 degrees. Haleyville and Cullman were tied as the cool spots at 79 degrees. The warm spots were Tuscaloosa, Alabaster, and Uniontown, all tied at 88 degrees.

We’ll have a chance of isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms through the rest of the afternoon and into the early evening hours north of the I-20 corridor, while south of that, scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorm are possible, becoming more likely as you move farther south. Afternoon highs should top out in the mid to upper 80s across the area.

For tonight and through the overnight hours, we’ll continue to have some isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms until the sun goes down, then much of the activity will diminish soon after. A few showers and storms may linger for a while until just before midnight. Higher rain chances will be over the southeastern parts of the area. Lows will be in the upper 60s to the lower 70s.

Tuesday will be a partly cloudy day with more isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms possible for the northern two-thirds of the area, while scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the southern third of the area (mainly along and south of the I-85 and US-80 corridors). Highs will be hotter, up in the upper 80s to the lower 90s.

All clear across the tropical Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Sea, and the Gulf of Mexico. No new tropical systems are expected to develop over the next five days.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY
1843 – A spectacular cloudburst near Philadelphia turned the small creeks and streams entering the Delaware River into raging torrents. As much as sixteen inches of rain fell in just three hours. Flooding destroyed thirty-two county bridges, and caused nineteen deaths. It is believed that several small tornadoes accompanied the torrential rains, one of which upset and sank more than thirty barges on the Schuylkill River.
