6:56AM October 7, 2021

FEW STORMS POSSIBLE TODAY; DRIER DAYS AHEAD… Scattered thunderstorms are likely to pop up across the region today, mainly in the afternoon and early evening hours. Most communities will likely remain dry today. Heavy, widespread, intense rain like what we had on Tuesday is not expected. This is good news for folks near the local creeks and rivers affected by the floods over the last few days. High temperatures on this Thursday will be in the mid-80s. A few more Thursday morning forecast notes are below.

FLOOD WARNING CONTINUES NEAR BREWTON… Despite creek water levels continuing to recede fairly rapidly this morning, a Flood Warning does continue for Murder Creek near Brewton and East Brewton this morning. We expect the creek levels to be completely below flood stage by late morning as the water level continues to recede. Minor flooding is forecast to continue near Riverview along the Conecuh River and near Century along the Escambia River.

20-30% CHANCE OF STORMS FRIDAY; DRY FOR MOST H.S. FOOTBALL GAMES… A few showers and thunderstorms may happen on Friday, primarily in the afternoon hours. High temperatures will be in the mid-80s. I expect the vast majority of our local high school football games to be dry with kickoff temperatures in the mid- to upper-70s. I cannot completely rule out a shower or storm, but most of the games should be dry.

SUNNY, NICE WEEKEND… After too much rain this week, we finally get a nice few days this weekend. Saturday and Sunday will be mostly sunny with high temperatures in the mid-80s. Overnight lows each day will be in the mid-60s.

FEW SHOWERS NEXT WEEK… A few showers will become possible on Columbus Day Monday and on Tuesday. Widespread severe weather looks unlikely both days, but we may have a few spotty showers and storms around. Highs will yet again be in the mid-80s.

20% CHANCE OF TROPICAL STORM DEVELOPMENT IN WESTERN ATLANTIC… An area of disturbed weather in the southwestern Atlantic Ocean, north of The Bahamas, has a 20% chance of becoming a named tropical storm in the days ahead as the system gradually moves northeast. This system will never directly affect south Alabama or northwest Florida regardless of if formal development happens. From NHC: “A weak area of low pressure located a couple of hundred miles off coast of northeastern Florida continues to produce disorganized shower activity. The low is expected to move northward and then northeastward at 5 to 10 mph off the southeastern coast of the United States during the next few days, and upper-level winds are expected to remain too strong for significant development. By the weekend, the system is forecast to interact with a front, which could also limit tropical development. Regardless of development, this system could bring gusty winds and locally heavy rain to portions of the Carolinas late this week and this weekend.”

APP… Many updates will be posted throughout the day in the RedZone Weather app. redzoneweather.com/app is the link for the free download. Be sure to visit the Alerts tab (bottom right corner) and tap the large, yellow “Alert Settings” button to customize the alerts you’d like to receive from me.
