| June 10, 2021 @ 11:43 am

RADAR CHECK: It has been a very wet morning for much of North/Central Alabama with areas of heavy rainfall. Flash flooding continues to be a concern and the Flash Flood Watch remains in effect until this evening.

At the midday hours, the heavy rain and storm activity has decreased in coverage and intensity across North/Central Alabama, while the more intense activity is over southern portions of the state. Through the afternoon and evening hours, rain and storms will continue to be a threat for many locations. Where it is not raining, we are seeing more clouds than sun, with temperatures in the 80s, while 70s are more common in areas seeing rain.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: More of the same to end the work week tomorrow, with more clouds than sun, and scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, and again, tropical downpours are likely. Then, for Saturday and Sunday, showers and storms should become fewer in number with increasing amounts of sunshine. Rain chances will return to more seasonal values for mid-June in Alabama; roughly in the 30-40 percent range, Saturday dropping to 20 percent Sunday. Highs over the weekend will be between 87 and 92 degree range.

FOR NEXT WEEK: Finally, better model agreement in regards to next week and they show a much drier airmass dropping into Alabama through the week. Though showers and storms coverage will drop considerably, they will not go away completely, and will become more isolated in nature. Highs Monday and Tuesday will be around 90°, but then will drop into the low to mid-80s for the rest of the week. Dewpoints will be considerably lower, and some North Alabama communities could drop into the 50s over the latter half of the week.
