BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - THE NEXT 24 HOURS: We continue to track showers over parts of Blount and Cullman counties this evening, but the wet weather should continue to fade away. Low clouds and patchy fog will be around for the early morning hours, and this will quickly give way to brighter weather, with more hot/steamy conditions. More scattered storms will be developing Monday afternoon and there will be a greater chance for some pop-ups further south. So be alert for the threat of lightning Monday afternoon and evening.

WHAT TO EXPECT THIS WEEK: We won’t experience any major changes in the weather setup this week. Temperatures will rise to near 90º each day, with heat index levels rising into the triple digit range. The conditions aloft will favor heat activated afternoon storms through midweek. The rather synoptically benign setup will also mean slower moving storms, which will result in a greater risk for localized flooding.

We will also experience more hot/humid weather for the end of the workweek and weekend, with scattered afternoon storms on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Once again, data is back on board with showing an upper-level ridge strengthening over the region, which could result in lower rain chances and even hotter conditions on Sunday. I’ll have lots of updates on WBRC Fox6 News at 9, 9:30, and 10PM.
