This means we can not rule out the chance for continued isolated showers/ storms this afternoon.
A broad low in the northeast Gulf of Mexico is drifting northward, and will push deeper moisture up into Alabama in coming days.
This Morning: A quiet and cooler start to your day this morning with mostly clear skies and temperatures in the 60s across the Big Country.
This rain is needed, as we are running almost 2 inches below the monthly average! The EURO is most bullish with a frontal passage while the American counterpart stalls the boundary to the north. Highs will be hold in the 80s, with humid conditions, while nights will be warm and muggy with lows in the mid 60s.
Overnight lows only fall to around 70° in many spots.
It looks like we keep the chance of rain into the weekend. Afternoon highs will drop into the low & possibly middle 80's.
This is also the best chance for a few strong storms containing large hail and damaging winds.
Any storms that do develop would wrap up before midnight.
Scattered t-storms are possible south of I-70 on Friday. Expect a round of early morning showers and then a mid day break with only isolated to scattered showers.
With the additional rain this week, that will allow temperatures to dial back into the mid-80s for the afternoons. I do think most storms stay below severe criteria. Highs warm up in the mid 80s to possibly low 90s through Saturday with mid 70s to low 80s by Sunday.
