Isolated thunderstorms continue across our region. At the moment, the heaviest rain is falling near Burnt Corn, Citronelle, and Millry…

Nothing severe – good news. Storms are producing heavy rain and lots of lightning.

Storms will fade as we lose daytime heating later this evening.

HOT DAY; P.M. ISOLATED STORMS… High temperatures are slated to rise slightly this afternoon compared to previous days. We’ll be in the low- to mid-90s across south Alabama and northwest Florida. Showers and storms will bubble up due to all of the heat content in the atmosphere across our region. Storm coverage will be greatest from 11AM to 7PM.

WEEKEND PREVIEW… More of the same! Rain chances will be slightly deflated from previous days this weekend, with about a 30-40% chance of storms in the afternoon and evening hours each day. High temperatures will be in the mid-90s. We note that the rip current risk at Alabama & NW Florida beaches remains slightly elevated, so if you’re headed to the beach today or over the next few days, be extra cautious in the water. Rip currents kill more people in our area than any other weather-related hazard, primarily due to vacationers not knowing about the hazards of rip currents.

Tomorrow is the first day of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. I’ll have more info about what you can expect in tomorrow’s morning video.

See more details about your local forecast in your Thursday #rzw forecast video that will be available shortly in the post above… Have a nice day!

STORMS IN WEST ALABAMA… A decaying line of showers and thunderstorms is slowly moving southeast across Clarke, Washington, Marengo, Wilcox, and southeastern Choctaw counties as of 10:07PM. This line of storms will continue to weaken as it moves southeast…

A few isolated showers and small storms will likely be around after midnight, but vast majority of us should be dry by 1AM.

LOCAL AREA DRY, FOR NOW... South Alabama & northwest Florida is completely rain-free as of 7:25PM. We’re watching a line of strong thunderstorms dropping excessive rainfall moving into Choctaw County from east Mississippi.

CHOCTAW COUNTY UPDATE… Plenty of storms are happening along and just west of the Alabama Highway 17 corridor. At the moment, heavier rain is moving into Lisman and Butler. Storms will move into Needham, Gilbertown, and Silas shortly.

HUMID EVENING FOR ALL… There could be a few pop-up storms this evening through 11PM, but most of us will be dry. We remain in a VERY humid, moist airmass. Dewpoint values are in excess of 70 in some spots across the region, which is very humid even by our own local “humidity standards.”
