More Showers/Storms Tomorrow Afternoon; Drier Wednesday

| May 13, 2024 @ 3:17 pm

RADAR CHECK: Most of Alabama is rain-free this afternoon, although showers continue over the far southern counties of the state in the broad some from Mobile to Dothan. The best chance of rain tonight will remain near the Gulf Coast, where a flash flood watch remains in effect.

The weather stays unsettled tomorrow with a good chance of showers and storms by afternoon into the evening hours. Not an all-day rain, but where the storms form they could be strong with potential for some small hail and gusty winds. A “marginal risk” (level 1/5) covers all of Alabama.

Drier air moves into Alabama Wednesday… other than the chance of a few isolated showers over the Tennessee Valley, the rest of the state will be dry with a high in the low 80s. Thursday will be dry statewide with a good supply of sunshine along with a high in the mid 80s.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Rain returns to Alabama Friday as a surface low approaches; the rain could be heavy at times through Friday night. For now it looks like any risk of severe storms will be confined to areas close to the Gulf Coast. Seeing better model agreement in the weekend weather situation; we will need to hang on to a chance of rain Saturday (especially during the morning hours), but Sunday looks dry with a good supply of sunshine. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

NEXT WEEK: The weather looks warm and dry Monday and Tuesday with highs in the upper 80s… global models are now suggesting some risk of rain toward the middle of the week in the Wednesday/Thursday time frame. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
