Weather Changes Ahead


High pressure remains in place over the southeastern U.S. this morning, helping to continue generally dry conditions.

It looks like we will squeeze out one…may two…dry days before tropical moisture starts to stream into the area from the Gulf.

Afternoon highs will be back into the 90’s again this afternoon, and the humidity will begin to climb up a bit over Alabama.

The Code Orange Air Quality Alert remains in effect today for Jefferson and Shelby counties due to high ozone levels over the region.

We are still looking at rain chances increasing over the state as weather systems come together over the weekend.

The most likely chance of seeing widespread showers and thunderstorms will come on Saturday into Saturday night. However the chances of seeing a good deal of storms around will continue on Sunday and Monday as well.

With the dry conditions over the state, the rain will be welcome by many…even though it may threaten Labor Day weekend activities.

The weekend won’t be a ‘washout’…we do expect some areas to get more rain than others. It’s entirely possible that some areas won’t receive much beneficial rainfall while other locations may receive upwards of two inches.
