Latest guidance from The National Weather Service in Mobile, AL states the situation for today quite well… “The axis of tropical moisture extending into the Florida Panhandle and southeastern states acts as the source for the daily convection expected in the afternoon hours Sunday. A wider coverage of storms than yesterday is expected owing to the additional moisture. Precipitable water values rise to near 1.7 inches by this afternoon with CAPE values again over 2000 J/kg. This coupled with temperatures in the upper 80s/low 90s will be enough maintain the daily convection into the
late afternoon and early evening hours. A weak mid-level ridge overhead makes for diminished storm motions and as a result some locations beneath the afternoon`s storms could experience larger than normal rainfall amounts.”

This means that we will have numerous showers and thunderstorms in place across our region this afternoon and this evening. We will have radar updates throughout the day in the RZWeather app.
