SOGGY, WET EVENING… A mass of rain and storms continues to move eastward slowly across south Alabama and northwest Florida. Very heavy rain is happening near Roberts, Bradley, Dixonville, Wawbeek, Canoe, and Atmore right now with moderate rain happening in Brewton, Monroeville, River Falls, Greenville, and Calvert.

Rain and storms will likely fade just after sunset and we should be drying out this evening.

SCATTERED SATURDAY STORMS… Heavy rain and thunderstorms continue to bubble up across the region on this Saturday afternoon. At the moment, a complex of heavy rain and storms continues to stream northwest into Washington, Clarke, and Choctaw counties in west Alabama.

Storms are also bubbling up over the Mobile metro area, near Gulf Crest, Deer Park, and Bay Minette. I expect storms to continue to pop up over the next few hours.

STRONG STORMS APPROACHING THOMASVILLE… A line of strong thunderstorms is approaching the northern stretches of Clarke County. Heavy rain, cloud-to-ground lightning, and gusty winds are likely in communities like Campbell, Sweet Water, Morvin, Silas, Bashi, Opine, Glover, Tallahatta Springs, Coffeeville, Atkeison, McEntrye, Pine Hill, Thomasville, and Tattlersville over the next 30-45 minutes.

ANOTHER ROUND OF STORMS… The rain and thunderstorms that moved from west to east earlier today has stabilized the atmosphere somewhat over south central Alabama and northwest Florida, but we note that small storms are beginning to pop up over Washington and Mobile counties. I expect the atmosphere to destabilize (yet again) across the region with storms popping up regionwide by 3PM. Scattered downpours of heavy rain will be likely.

Widespread severe weather is not expected today, but there will be some storms that are on the strong side.

POP-UP STORMS TODAY; TROPICS UPDATE… Stormy skies are expected across south Alabama and northwest Florida on this Saturday. We’ll call it a 70% chance of showers and storms for any given spot across our region. Widespread severe weather won’t happen, but thunderstorms will produce very heavy rain, cloud-to-ground lightning, and isolated instances of flash flooding. High temperatures will be around 89.

BEACH & GOLF FORECAST TODAY… There is a moderate risk of rip currents at local beaches today. It won’t be an all day washout at any beach locale, but there will be thunderstorms around at times. The same applies for golfers, kayakers, and other outdoor folks today: You’ll want to have a way to check the radar throughout the day as there will be numerous storms around.

TROPICAL WAVE WEAKER… The tropical wave we’ve been tracking over the last few days that is approaching Barbados and the Lesser Antilles has entered an environment that is hostile for intensification. This tropical wave will likely be completely ripped apart by atmospheric shear over the next few days. Tropical Storm Ernesto has transitioned into a post-tropical system that will bring rain to Ireland and the UK tonight. This means the Atlantic basin is again QUIET! Good news!

MORE STORMS THIS WEEK… Rain chances will remain elevated through Tuesday as a moist, humid airmass remains in place across our region. Rain chances should subside somewhat by the end of the upcoming week.

I’ll have radar updates throughout the day here in the RedZone Weather app. Have a wonderful Saturday!
