Showers Remain Very Isolated; Warmer Days Ahead

| June 18, 2020 @ 3:13 pm

RADAR CHECK: We do have a few showers across Alabama this afternoon, but they remain few and far between. Most of the state is dry with a mix of sun and clouds along with temperatures in the 80s.

Showers will end this evening, and tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 60s. The weather won’t change much tomorrow; partly sunny with only isolated showers. The high will be in the upper 80s as the warming trend continues.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Model data continues to suggest the weekend will hot and mostly dry; look for a good supply of sunshine Saturday and Sunday with highs around 90 degrees. Odds of any one spot seeing a shower will be only in the 10 percent range during the afternoon and evening hours.

NEXT WEEK: Moisture levels will rise, the air becomes more unstable, and we expect an increase in the number of scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the week. Not necessarily widespread rain, but most places should see a decent shower or two along the way. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected through the weekend.

ON THIS DATE IN 1972: Hurricane Agnes was one of the stronger June hurricanes on record. The system strengthened into a tropical storm during the night of the 15th and a hurricane on the 18th as it moved northward in the Gulf of Mexico.
