Rain showers have developed over southern southern portions of our Alabama viewing area, and rain will continue to work north this evening. The best coverage will remain in Alabama but locations along and east of Highway 15 stand the best chance to see rain. Rain showers will linger overnight with more rain arriving for our Independence Day.
If there is any good news in the forecast today, it is that the upper level low responsible for the rain has stayed a little further east than expected, meaning the bulk of the moisture has remained over eastern Alabama instead of sliding back to the Mississippi/Alabama state line. This means a decrease in rain chances for Independence Day and that locations west of Highway 15 may remain dry.
Rain showers and storms will still be present for Friday and Saturday, but again more of the scattered variety. Rain will start to decrease in coverage on Sunday as the low moves away a little faster than previously thought. Once the low departs, clouds will start to thin a bit and temperatures will start to return to 90. With plenty of moisture in place, we may not get a fully dry day area wide until Wednesday.
