Increasing Moisture and Rain Chances

An easterly flow has pushed clouds into eastern sections of Alabama.

The flow will continue to set up across the area. This will allow us to gradually moisten up the next couple of days.
An isolated shower or thunderstorm is possible Friday afternoon over eastern sections of the state.

By Saturday, a weak upper low sets up over the deep south as a shortwave passes through the Midwest. The setup will allow for better coverage of showers and storms during the day Saturday.

Eastern sections of the state look to be more favorable for scattered storms as a ‘wedge front’ moves west to east from Georgia.

By Sunday…the shortwave will move northeast out of the area. The coverage of scattered showers and storms should be a little less and temperatures a little warmer.

We are watching future developments in regards to Tropical Storm Erika. At this point, we don’t expect to see any rain from the storm. However if the storm were to track further west than projected, the forecast will need an update.
