RADAR CHECK: An organized band of thunderstorms is pushing into West Alabama at mid-afternoon; these storms are moving slowly to the east/southeast, and are producing heavy rain, gusty winds, and lots of lightning. Other widely scattered showers and thunderstorms have developed across the central counties of the state. Away from the storms, temperatures are mostly in the 90-95 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds. Storms will fade away tonight after sunset.
DOG DAYS: The weather in August in Alabama is almost always hot and humid, and that is what we will be dealing with around here for the foreseeable future. Look for partly sunny days through the weekend with the usual daily round of “scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms”. Most of the storms come in random places between 12:00 noon and 10:00 p.m.
