REST OF TONIGHT AND TOMORROW: The flash flood warnings have expired, but as runoff from heavy rain continues overnight, there could be some trouble spots on secondary roads, especially those with poor drainage. Be extra careful and give yourself some extra drive time in the morning. There could be some lingering pockets of rain to the south and perhaps a thunderstorm past midnight. I also want to give you a First Alert on the possibility of some foggy weather for the drive to church tomorrow. The morning low clouds and fog will give way to sunshine and steamy weather conditions by late morning. I don’t think the rain is going to be quite as wide-spread tomorrow. We could see some scattered showers and storms by early afternoon; however, I’m thinking the higher rain chances will slide south later in the day. High temperatures will be in the upper 80s tomorrow and it may not feel quite as steamy for areas to the north, like Cullman, Haleyville, and Cedar Bluff.
WHAT TO EXPECT NEXT WEEK: As the dog days roll on, I’d plan for more hot, humid, and hazy weather on Monday and Tuesday, with scattered storms likely. Forecast data suggests colder air aloft will keep our afternoon rain chances rather elevated through mid-week. That could begin to change by Thursday as a ridge builds overhead. This would limit the number of storms and bring a rise in surface temperatures, with highs in the low to mid-90s by next weekend. Fred will be in with radar updates beginning at 5 a.m. on our Sunday morning news.
