Midday Nowcast: More Showers and Storms

| May 12, 2023 @ 10:31 am

Showers and storms are ongoing across the state of Alabama, where it is not raining, we are seeing a mostly cloudy sky, muggy conditions, and temperature in the mid to upper 80s. Where it is raining, temperatures are in the 70s. With higher moisture content in the air, rainfall is heavy with the showers and storms, and we could see areas of isolated flash flooding. Though severe storms are not expected, we could see some strong storms with gusty winds and small hail. And, all storms this time of year are prolific lightning producers…when Thunder Roars, Head Indoors…

ACROSS THE USA: Summer-like temperatures are expected through the weekend for areas of the Pacific Northwest into interior California where new daily record high temperatures may be set. For the Central and Southern Plains, severe thunderstorms and excessive rainfall threats continue. Large hail and a few tornadoes are forecast for the mid-Missouri Valley, including central Oklahoma and Texas through today.

WEEKEND WEATHER: The upper ridge strengthens some and heat levels will be on the increase with afternoon highs ranging from the upper 80s to lower 90s. Both days, expect a mix of sun and clouds with some showers and storms, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. Rain chances will be in the 20-40% range.

INTO NEXT WEEK: The pattern holds into at least the early part of next week with warm, humid days and scattered showers and storms around each afternoon and highs in the mid to upper 80s. Towards the second half of the week, we could see a weak front bring lower humidity levels.
