Strong to Severe Storms Possible Later Today

SEVERE WEATHER THREAT POTENTIAL:   Cluster of strong to severe storms will enter NW Alabama shortly and slide east and southeast. The atmosphere is primed for action with all the heat and humidity and we could even severe storms into central and SE Alabama later on as the complex migrates across the state. Large hail and damaging wind gusts are a threat. Would not be surprised if we see a weather watch later on.  Stay weather aware.

Future radar through this afternoon & tonight.

 

Concern for severe storms in Alabama today growing. Enhanced risk now in north Alabama north of a Alex city /Clanton line, and a severe risk south to Montgomery.   Even a marginal risk farther SE to including Troy and Eufaula.

 

EARLIER POST FROM THIS MORNING:  Weekend Heat & Humidity, But, Relief Soon! – Friday Video

Happy Friday!  Welcome to June..and the First day of Hurricane Season.  Heat and Humidity headline the forecast for the weekend.  I’ll fill you in on triple digit heat indices.  I have adjusted the weekend rain chances for here and the Beach.  And, I am thrilled to deliver some good news about a front on the way.  This is a front which will wipe out the humidity and take storms off the radar.  I’ll tell you when to expect this nice change.  Wait till you see the details, on your Friday morning personal weather briefing.

 

Heat index 100 or above again today!  Storms will be around, but spotty.  Many towns may stay dry.  HOT.

HEAT and HUMIDITY at very high levels through the the weekend with triple digit heat indices.  Rain chances will be best on Sunday, as an important front approaches.  That front will lower humidity  and bring in some very comfortable air for the early and middle part of next week.  NICE AIR!

Rain chances are “routine” at the beach today and tomorrow, but a little better Sunday as that front approaches.

With brutal  Dewpoints in the middle 70’s today, it’s exciting to think about this nice air which will be in place behind that next front.  This is Tuesday.  Dewpoints in the 50’s  Get excited!   This will be a nice change.

 

Welcome to hurricane season.  The season starts today and continues until November 30th.  Is your name on this year’s list?  We’ve already used one name.  Could we see Beryl by mid June?
