Wet weather likely this week
Plenty of rain and thunderstorms through at least early next week
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - A deep layer of tropical moisture associated with Tropical Storm Nicholas is pushing into Alabama and the Deep South as you read this. Translation - rain, rain and more rain. Periods of rain and a few thunderstorms are likely tonight, tomorrow, tomorrow night and Thursday.
The added moisture being pulled in from the Gulf of Mexico ahead of Nicholas’ remnants is what will support those higher rain chances. What falls on Wednesday and Thursday will be rain with a few embedded thunderstorms.
Rain chances stay pretty high as we round out the week and push through the weekend. It’s unlikely that Friday, Saturday or Sunday is a washout from start to finish, but your chance of getting wet is still in the 50-60% range.
Most guidance suggests elevated rain and thunderstorm chances continuing into next week as well.
By the time we get to early next week, most of our area will pick up a healthy 2-4″ of rainfall. Some may get a little less, some will get a little more. We are not anticipating any big flooding issues, however.
With the high-end rain coverage and extra cloud cover we’re only expecting high temperatures in the lower and middle 80s most days. That’s a bit below normal for this time of year!
The humidity, though, will certainly not be below normal. It will be very muggy with tropical-like conditions for the foreseeable future!
