Danny to bring isolated rain to Alabama
Little impact to Alabama, but rain chances climb later this week
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Danny officially made landfall as a tropical storm near Hilton Head, South Carolina, earlier this evening. Now it is moving across Georgia as a tropical depression and its main impact is rain. For Central and South Alabama, impacts are negligible - we’ll see a small increase in the coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms, mainly Tuesday and Wednesday (and perhaps Thursday).
The weather Tuesday looks fairly typical for late June - isolated storms, plenty of heat and humidity, and afternoon highs in the lower 90s.
The additional moisture from Tropical Storm Danny will “juice” up the atmosphere a bit Tuesday and Wednesday, leading to a modest increase in the coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Coverage of rain will be around 30% - 40%, so when it’s not raining we are expecting it to be partly cloudy and muggy with highs in the lower 90s once again.
Our daily rain and thunderstorm chances slowly rise each day from there.
As for the holiday weekend... a frontal boundary will attempt to move into Alabama from the north, and rain and storm coverage will pick up. So rain is in the forecast, but exactly how much rain we’ll see will depend on how far south that frontal boundary makes it. Check back in for updated holiday rain chances throughout the week.
Some good news about the holiday weekend? Highs will be a bit cooler (but that’s thanks to the clouds and elevated rain chances). We’re talking highs only in the lower and middle 80s at best!
