The radar map is finally looking a bit different this afternoon, with our daily round of afternoon rain becoming more isolated and scattered in nature. Still, keep an eye on the weather app for a possible precipitation or lightning alert. The chance for a passing downpour will continue into the early evening hours but the wet weather will quickly fade after sunset. The sky should partially clear later tonight and if you’re hanging out in the backyard, keep an eye to the northeast for a shooting star. The Perseid Meteor shower peaks between midnight and 7 a.m. tomorrow. Patchy fog will be developing in the morning, especially in those areas that received rain. Lows will be in the 70s.
WHAT TO EXPECT TOMORROW AND NEXT WEEK: We are tracking another front that will move into our state tomorrow. This should limit the number of showers with many areas remaining dry. Highs will near 90 degrees, with isolated pop-up showers and storms in the afternoon. The greatest chance for a pop-up shower or storm will be south of I-20.
FIRST ALERT FOR ANOTHER FLOOD THREAT NEXT WEEK: Tomorrow’s frontal system will stall across the state and place us in another rainy and stormy setup for Monday and Tuesday. This will bring another flood concern early next week, with highs in the 80s. The good news is that high pressure should set the stage for fewer storms and showers beginning on Wednesday. Highs will remain in the upper 80s and low 90s. We are also tracking a tropical disturbance in the Atlantic that will become better organized over the coming days. I will have a track on this system plus more specifics on the forecast for next week at 9, 9:30, and 10 p.m. tonight on WBRC.
