A cold front is south of central Alabama and continues to push in that direction. The air is still very soupy across the state but just to our north, much drier air is located and as this air mass moves in later today it will act like a cool front or dry line and cause showers and storms to form.
Storms will be north to south moves and tend to be most intense to the south of I-20. The strongest storms will contain wind gusts over 40mph, intense cloud to ground lightning and heavy rainfall that will limit visibility and cause ponding on the roadways.
The weather looks much calmer by the time the Baron's game starts.
The other big story is the heat! The air is oppressive outside for one more day with feels like temperatures in the lower 100s the rest of today.
Much drier air filters in overnight and it is going to feel like a million bucks when you step outside tomorrow morning. Temperatures will be in the 60s for a change and dew points in the 50s which will be a 20 degree drop.
We won't need to show the heat index map tomorrow because it will be the same as the current temperature map. Highs in the 80s and 90s will actually feel like 80s and 90s! This wonderful air mass hangs out with us at least through the weekend. It will be a perfect opportunity to knock out some of those outdoor strenuous activities and jobs that you have been holding off on.
Stay weather aware today! Keep up with the latest active weather via the WBRC Weather App or via Fox 6! We'll be monitoring storm development closely and will keep you informed.
Have a nice day,
