We’re headed for another hot and humid day. Temperatures should climb into the upper 80s to near 90° by lunchtime. This very unstable air will then interact with a cold front to our north to spark scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Here is a timeline for when storms could be in your area. Keep in mind, it will not be a complete wash out, some areas may stay completely dry with more sunshine.
The tornado threat is very low today. Our main concern is the possibility for 60-70mph wind gusts capable of downing some trees and powerlines. Some large hail (1-2 inches in diameter) will also be possible in some of the storms. The storms will be moving through very quickly, so the flood threat should be low.
If you commute to Birmingham, the evening commute could be stormy. Pinpoint Predictor shows a line of stronger to possibly severe storms just north of Birmingham around 5-6pm.
