BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The FOX6 Storm Warn Team is tracking a large mass of rain and storms moving into western Mississippi and it is forecast to continue moving eastward and will impact Alabama this afternoon.

Fairly dry weather is expected through noon and then showers and storms start to pop after that and become scattered to numerous in nature.

The strongest of the storms will be capable of producing gusty winds, small hail, heavy downpours which could lead to flash flooding and frequent lightning.

The best chance for wet weather is between 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Remember, if the thunder roars then go indoors.

After Monday, rain chances decrease from 60 percent to 40 percent by Tuesday. An upper level ridge builds in the rest of this week and that means a hot and dry spell is in store.

We are forecasting highs in the middle and upper 90s from Wednesday through the weekend and feels like temperatures in the 100s. Unfortunately, that means drought conditions will likely worsen.
