Alabama Weather Update – 2 p.m.

It is a beautful summer day across Central Alabama. North of I-59, fair skies prevail, with only scattered cumulus clouds. South of I-59, the cumulus field is a little more numerous, but you have to travel pretty far southeast in Alabama to hit showers and storms. They are in the vicinity of a surface trough that extends over Southeast Alabama. Radar shows them over Butler, Crenshaw and Barbour Counties.

Temperatues were approaching or exceeding 90 degrees in most locations across Central Alabama. Dewpoints are in the the upper 50s, a little low for this time of year. They make for a little less humidity than we are accustomed to. This will allow lows tonight to drop into the lower and middle 60s.

Back to the northwest, a small complex of storms is over southwestern Arkansas. This is associated with another disturbance that will slide by us tomorrow. It may be able to conjure up a couple of storms late tomorrow afternoon into tomorrow evening.

HIgh pressure will build in for Tuesday and Wednesday, limiting our shower and storm chances. Isolated storms will be possible Thursday and Friday. Rain chances may go up a bit as we head into the weekend as an upper disturbance affects the area.
