As the air heats up, clouds will eventually form and a few will develop into showers and storms. The chance increase after 11AM of this happening. The activity that forms today will be isolated to widely scattered in nature. The best chance for a pop up shower or storm will exist after 11am until 7pm.
Strong storms? Sure a rogue strong storm is possible but most will be typical summer-time storms. The strongest of the storms could produce winds in excess of 30 mph and perhaps up to 50mph. As we recall what happened in Hueytown yesterday, it doesn't take a severe wind gust (58 mph or greater) to cause damage. Storms will move a little faster than yesterday to the southwest but even at 10-20 mph they can still unleash over 1" of rainfall in a short period of time resulting in localized flooding. The other threat is lightning which can strike up to 15 miles away from a storm.
Stay weather aware today and pay attention to what is happening in the sky. If you see clouds growing with height, it is a good idea to check the WBRC Weather App to see if storms are forming near you. If you have any doubt in your mind, you can always ask me via twitter (@jillgilardi) or Facebook (Jill Gilardi WBRC) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
It can go from sunny one minute to 5 minutes later partly sunny to 10 minutes later pouring with thunder and lightning. If anything gnarly develops, I'll post about it on twitter and Facebook.
FUTURE TEMPERATURE AND RADAR SNAPSHOTS:
Have a safe and enjoyable rest of the weekend,
