Scattered Storms Remain in the Forecast


The upper disturbance that brought shower and thunderstorm activity across Alabama on Saturday continued moving to the northeast away from the region this morning.

As expected…there was a mix of rainfall totals over the state. Even though some areas received beneficial rains to help with the dry conditions, several spots were left out with little if any rain.

Another area of showers was forming west of Jackson, Mississippi this morning in part associated with another weak upper level disturbance. This will move into northwestern sections today.

Overall, the best chances of seeing scattered showers and thunderstorms will be over northern sections…generally along and north of I-20.

With moisture in place and afternoon heating, there will be around a 30% chance of seeing storms develop across the rest of the state.

Afternoon high temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80’s across the north…with 90’s for central and southern areas.

Some of the storms that form today will be strong…as they will be capable of producing strong winds, locally heavy rainfall and lots of lightning.

Drier air is expected to move into the area on Monday. This will reduce the chance of seeing scattered storms over the state.
