Showers/Storms To Increase In Coming Days

| August 22, 2019 @ 5:54 am

UNSETTLED PATTERN: The air across Alabama will become more unstable in coming days, and moisture levels will rise, setting the stage for an unsettled pattern through the weekend. We expect a mix of sun and clouds today and tomorrow with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms, mostly between 12:00 noon and 12:00 midnight. Odds of any one spot getting wet both days are 50 to 70 percent, and afternoon highs will be mostly in the upper 80s.
