We'll make it through another day with no rain. We are once again in between weather systems. A strong trough will dig in tomorrow night into Thursday morning. This will mean the potential for some heavy rain and a few thunderstorms. Wind shear looks favorable to support some severe storms, but the instability is really lacking. Dewpoint temperatures are in the upper 40s today and I don't think we'll see enough moisture return tomorrow evening to give us any significant severe weather. The greatest fisk for severe storms will remain to our west and northwest including Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, and Southern Illinois.
Our VIPIR forecast model is showing the best chance of rain and storms will arrive after 11pm. There is a small threat for severe storms in Marion, Lamar, Winston, Fayette, and Walker Counties as well as the Shoals area. The main threat would be winds over 40mph. Rain will likely linger through Thursday morning with clearing during the afternoon. High pressure will build across the region through the weekend. Expect highs in the upper 70s.
Don't forget to join us at the Walgreens in Pelham for anothe Weather Radio Wednesday event. We'll be there from 6:30am until 7pm. I hope to see you.
