ISOLATED STORMS TODAY, BUT NOT LIKE YESTERDAY… After a day with a tornado warning in Clarke County and hail the size of a grapefruit in Covington County, today our weather will be somewhat quieter. Isolated afternoon and evening thunderstorms are again likely, but the overall severe weather risk is much lower compared to yesterday. Storms will be loud, proud, and produce a lot of lightning/thunder, heavy rain, and gusty winds. The primary window for storms today will be between 1PM and 7PM in the heat of the day. High temperatures will again be in the low-90s with heat index values near or just above 100°.
4”+ HAIL IN COVINGTON COUNTY… I think the biggest surprise (out of the many!) yesterday happened near Sanford in Covington County, Alabama. A hailstone the size of a grapefruit (4”+) fell in the severe thunderstorm that moved through around 1:30PM. There were many, many reports of hail in Covington County yesterday, with most of the reports being 1-2” hail in diameter. We also had several reports of hail in west Alabama, specifically near Grove Hill.
SEASONAL PATTERN THIS WEEK… Showers and thunderstorms will be present across the area each afternoon in each of the next 7 days. High temperatures will again be in the 90s with morning lows in the 70s.
