Hurricane Florence strengthening; Higher rain chances return to Alabama Monday

Another day of plentiful heat and humidity is in store, but the forecast will take a more soggy turn tomorrow. Today will be similar to yesterday. Highs will be in the low 90s and scattered showers and storms will pop up in the afternoon, but again many of you will stay dry and hot.  Later in the day Sunday a frontal boundary will push into our far northern counties. This will bring rain to the northern counties late in the day and through the night. By Mond...

Summer-like weekend in Alabama; Tropical Storm Isaac forms in the Atlantic

Outdoor plans are a go this weekend, but don't forget your water bottle!

Josh: Quiet weekend, tropics heat up!

A typical Alabama September weekend unfolds over the next few days. We expect a mix of sun and clouds each day; then, in the late morning/early afternoon, a few scattered showers and storms will pop up. These will only affect SOME of us (30% Saturday, 40% Sunday), many of us will stay hot, humid and rain-free. A weak front approaches early next week, which will help to pull together more moisture. This means a greater coverage of those scattered showers and storms for Monday, Tuesd...

  Eric: Hot Friday forecast

Gordon is gone, and our weather will fully transition back to "typical" late Summer weather for the next few days.

Eric: Goodbye, Gordon

The effects of Gordon are slowly but surely waning across the region this morning.

Eric: Gordon's effects continue

Tropical Storm Gordon is quickly weakening, on it's way to depression status over inland Mississippi.

Gordon has eyes on the Gulf coast

Tropical Storm Gordon formed across the southern tip of Florida this morning. The system has gradually become more organized overnight and appears to be in an environment supportive of slow strengthening in the near term.

Ivey declares State of Emergency ahead of Gordon's landfall

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey has issued a State of Emergency for several counties preparing for the effects of Tropical Storm Gordon.

Eric: Waiting for Gordon

Our Labor Day will have a Summerlike feel to it with highs into the lower 90s and scattered mainly afternoon thunderstorms. It's a fitting end to the unofficial close of Summer.

Tropical depression likely to form in the next 48 hours

The rest of Labor Day Weekend will feature heat, humidity a few showers and storms. Rain chances once again favor our southern counties, but isolated showers and downpours are possible in central Alabama, as well. Our weather Tuesday and Wednesday depends on possible tropical development in the Gulf of Mexico early this week. The National Hurricane Center has given the tropical wave a high chance of cyclone formation in the next 5 days. Currently, the wave is a disorganized cluster...

Labor Day Weekend Forecast and Tropical Update

You're water bottle and sunscreen will get more use than your umbrella this long holiday weekend!

Eric: Labor Day weekend forecast

Our final day of August is about to carry us into an extended weekend, one where folks with outdoor plans will be paying particularly close attention to the forecast.

Tracking Labor Day Weekend Rain Chances

We had quite the afternoon and evening Wednesday with widespread thunderstorms, some of which producing isolated damage across parts of the area.

  Storms likely again Thursday

Summer just doesn't want to give up, does it?

Amanda: New workweek, same August weather

We may be starting a new workweek, but that doesn't mean we aren't stuck with the same heat and humidity we dealt with all weekend.

Lower-end rain chances return Monday

Another mostly dry and hot day is in store today! Rain chances stay low yet again this afternoon. Those with the highest chance of seeing rain are in west and southwest Alabama, but most of Alabama will see sunshine all day.

Warm temperatures, few showers this weekend

Happy Saturday! Our weather pattern has to returned to what's more "typical" for late August--  isolated showers and storms in the afternoon, highs in the 90s and a good amount of humidity.

Another night with lows in the 60s

We're getting toward the tail end of our lovely stretch of post-cold front weather.

Amanda: Comfortable warmth this afternoon

Well hello, 60s! Temperatures across most of the area have fallen below the 70-degree mark, a rare treat for this time of year.

Humidity continuing to drop

Our stretch of wet and damp days has come to an end.

Amanda: Rain chances drop, so does humidity

Yesterday's soaking rainfall has given way to a generally dry Tuesday morning, but leftover moisture will result in patchy fog and plenty of humidity in the air.

Amanda: More rain today before trending drier, less humid

More rain is expected today before we start trending drier, less humid later this week!

Wet Pattern Continues

Bring your raincoat to church and brunch, just in case an isolated shower passes over you this morning! Showers and storms will become much more numerous by this afternoon. In fact, today will be very similar to Saturday: rain will range from light showers to strong storms, it won't rain on everyone and it won't rain all day. Also similar to yesterday, temperatures will stay in the 70s and 80s for most of you. The wet pattern continues through the first half of the upcoming wo...
