Skies are mostly cloudy this morning. Rain showers will continue developing this morning, mainly east of I-65. Areas of fog are also possible given yesterday’s heavy rain. We should be slightly cooler this afternoon compared to yesterday with highs in the lower 80s. Still, as we warm up, rain and storms will become more numerous. The activity should be most widespread over northeastern Alabama this afternoon/evening. The threat for severe weather will be low, but as is typically the case this time of year, isolated storms can become more intense. Damaging wind gusts would be the main threat with those. Localized flash flooding is also a concern due to the slow movement of storms today.
Any rain or storms will diminish heading into tonight. It will stay muggy as lows drop into the upper 60s. Our weather remains unsettled to finish the week. The heat will build and the humidity continues.
Each day will feature scattered to numerous storms, mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. No one day should be a total washout and not everyone will see rain each day. Highs will be into the mid-to-upper 80s over the weekend and should be in the lower-to-middle 80s to begin next week.
