Showers Remain Few And Far Between

| June 17, 2020 @ 5:36 am

MOSTLY DRY WEATHER CONTINUES: Alabama’s weather won’t change much through the rest of the week. Partly sunny days, mostly fair nights, and only isolated, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms. Odds of any one place getting wet will be in the 10/20 percent range each day through Friday; the high will be around 80 degrees today, followed by mid 80s tomorrow, and upper 80s Friday. An upper low east of the state will keep the best chance of showers over Georgia and the Carolinas.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Heat levels will rise with afternoon highs around 90 degrees Saturday and Sunday. The sky will be mostly sunny both days, and the odds of a shower for any one given location are less than ten percent.

NEXT WEEK: Global models continue to suggest the air will be more unstable, and with rising moisture levels there will a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms on a daily basis, mostly during the hours between 1:00 and 9:00 p.m. Otherwise, look for a mix of sun and clouds each day with highs generally in the upper 80s, right at seasonal averages. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: A non-tropical low pressure area has moved inland over eastern North Carolina, and no further development is expected. Heavy rainfall could still occur over parts of eastern North Carolina and eastern Virginia through this afternoon. And, Showers and thunderstorms have diminished in association with a low-latitude tropical wave located a couple of hundred miles east-southeast of the Windward Islands, and upper-level winds are forecast to be unfavorable for further development. The rest of the Atlantic basin is quiet, as dry desert air from the African continent is moving westward across the deep tropics. Tropical storm formation is not expected through the weekend.

ON THIS DATE IN 1946: The third deadliest tornado in Canadian history struck southwestern Ontario from Windsor to Tecumseh. 17 people were killed and hundreds injured. Damage was conservatively estimated at $1.5 million.
