Watching for Thunderstorms


The weather pattern is forecast to become more unstable today as a series of weak upper disturbances interact with a fairly stagnant frontal boundary across north Alabama.

Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected later today, and on through the weekend as we remain in a stormy northwest flow.

Gusty outflow winds and heavy rainfall, some of which may translate into localized flooding, are possible with the stronger storms.

Much like last evening across parts of Marshall and Etowah counties, these storms can produce local wind damage with little or no warning.

Afternoon high temperatures will reach around 90 for northern areas, with mid 90’s in the central and southern locations. Heat indices will be near 101 degrees south in the afternoon.

Although there will be scattered storms state wide…the best chances of getting wet look to be along and north of I-20, where the best lift and deep layer moisture will be.
