MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Being stuck in a rut is typically viewed with a negative connotation. But the rut we're in isn't all that bad, particularly during July. Our daily regimen of partial sunshine giving way to afternoon storms is doing wonders to keep widespread drought conditions at bay. We'll likely have another round of downpours to track by afternoon...
TODAY: Fog was a major issue on area roadways this morning, but our fog has dissipated, giving way to partly cloudy skies as temperatures rapidly warm. The sea breeze along the coast is already helping generate thunderstorms to our south. Those storms will continue to develop northward in a very similar fashion to yesterday.
Expect storms to first impact south Alabama as early as late morning and develop into central Alabama into the afternoon. Not everyone gets wet, but those that do can expect very heavy rain and frequent lightning. An isolated Warning or two will be possible with gusty winds and small hail in the more intense cores. Temperatures could climb as high as the lower and middle 90s before storm and storm interactions start getting involved, bringing the numbers down.
REST OF THE WEEK: This is the time of years where our 7-Day could be consolidated into a 1-Day. Expect highs in the lower and middle 90s with scattered mainly afternoon thunderstorms each day this week.
