FIRST ALERT UPDATE: We’re continuing to track a large complex of rain with some embedded thunder across the area. The storms along the leading edge of this system have weakened considerably so the tornado watch will continue to be trimmed away from west to east. The atmosphere is becoming increasingly stable thanks to the rain cooled air, with temperatures in many locations now in the 60s. This will also help limit the severe weather risk for later tonight. That being said, we could hear some loud rumbles of thunder, with gusty winds as additional storms ramp up by midnight. This secondary surge of heavy rain and thunder will most likely be along and east of I-65. The storms and rain will taper off from west to east during the early morning hours, with some clearing tomorrow and pleasantly warm 70s!
NEXT STORM SYSTEM APPROACHES WEDNESDAY: We will enjoy a couple of dry days on Tuesday and Wednesday, with temperatures surging into the low 80s during the day. A very dynamic low pressure system will rotate over the region beginning late Wednesday and this could bring some rain and storms late Wednesday night and into the first part of Thursday. This system will bring some much cooler air, with lingering clouds and scattered showers through Friday. Temperatures may struggle to break into the mid 60s on Friday. I will share some updates and continue to track the rain and storms for you beginning at 9 p.m. on WBRC. You can also track the rain and check for forecast updates on the WBRC First Alert Weather App.
