Scattered showers and thunderstorms will begin to shut down around sunset. Rain cooled air will allow temperatures to remain in the 70s this evening and through the overnight hours. Some patchy fog is possible after today’s heavy rain.
Scattered showers and storms will return to the sky Friday and Saturday afternoon. We’ll keep the chance of rain around 60% but I don’t expect the coverage to be as widespread as it was on Thursday. Temperatures will top out near 90. Any storm that develops could produce strong gusty winds, significant lightning and heavy rain.
The new drought monitor is out today and shows some improvement over the Shoals but Extreme Drought conditions continue over Madison, Jackson and DeKalb counties. Parts of Northeast Alabama are running 5-8 inches below normal since January but the drought conditions really didn’t start until late April.
