SCATTERED STORMS HAPPENING NOW; MORE POP-UP STORMS THIS WEEK… Thunderstorms are popping up across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Sunday afternoon. Just like the last few days and just like the days ahead, these thunderstorms are producing very heavy downpours of rain in highly localized areas. As of 1:55PM, heavy rain is falling near Stapleton, Allentown, Berrydale, Canoe, Suggsville, Daphne, Montrose, Greenville, and Georgiana. Not everyone will have rain before the end of the day, but we all will continue to feel the heat and humidity when we step outside! Temperatures are in the low- to mid-90s right now. Combine the high dewpoint temperatures (in the mid- to upper-70s) and you get a heat index near 100 degrees. Storms will begin to fade away this evening as we lose daytime heating.

MORE OF THE SAME WEATHER AS WE START THE WEEK… Isolated P.M. pop-up thunderstorms and hot temperatures (highs in the mid-90s) will be our weather headlines as we kick off another work week. Rain chances will slightly increase as we move toward the end of the week.

FIRST LOOK: FOURTH OF JULY FORECAST… Independence Day on Thursday will be hot and humid with a chance of afternoon and evening thunderstorms. High temperatures will peak in the low- to mid-90s, which is right about where we should be for the 4th of July each year in terms of climatology. Severe weather is not expected, but as we all know, these summertime pop-up storms could pack a punch with heavy rain and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning. If you have outdoor plans, be sure to have an indoor backup ready.

SCATTERED THUNDERSTORMS LIKELY THIS AFTERNOON… Today will likely feature numerous showers and thunderstorms across south Alabama and northwest Florida, especially this afternoon into this evening. Rain chances are in the 60-70% range for any given spot today. Widespread severe weather remains unlikely, but some of the storms could ramp up to the strong side meaning gusty winds, very heavy downpours of rain, and dangerous cloud-to-ground lightning will be concerns. High temperatures this afternoon will peak around 92° in most spots.

MORE POP-UP STORMS OVER NEXT FEW DAYS… There are no major forecast changes to report this morning. Scattered P.M. pop-up thunderstorms will continue to be the lead weather headline with high temperatures in the 90s each day. Rain chances will be the in the 30-40% range for Sunday through Tuesday.

TROPICS ARE QUIET… The National Hurricane Center continues to suggest that no tropical storm formation is expected over the next 5-7 days in the Atlantic basin. Good news!

Have a great weekend!
