Thursday August 16, 2018
Meteorologist: James Spann

HOT; SCATTERED AFTERNOON STORMS: We do expect an increase in the number of showers and thunderstorms today across Alabama as moisture levels rise; otherwise the day will feature a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the low 90s.

TOMORROW AND THE WEEKEND: The weather becomes unsettled across Alabama on these three days with scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms; the sky will be occasionally cloudy with a high in the mid to upper 80s. Best chance of rain over the weekend comes from 1:00 until 11:00 p.m... but in this setup a late night or morning shower can't be ruled out.

NEXT WEEK: We will maintain a pretty good chance of showers and storms Monday through Wednesday, but the latest GFS run suggests drier air will move into Alabama Thursday and Friday with lower humidity values and cooler nights. Keep in mind fronts don't make it this far south in August very often, so we will cautiously trend toward a drier forecast late in the week.

ERNESTO IS ON THE BOARD: Subtropical Storm Ernesto has formed in the North Atlantic; winds are only 40 mph. It will move northeast toward the open North Atlantic, far from land. The rest of the Atlantic basin is very quiet.
