Alabama Skies: Summer pattern of heat, humidity, and storms continues

Published 1:30 am Thursday, May 11, 2023

It’s looking like today will be the best chance for rain and storms of the week for northern Alabama while the southern and Gulf Coast regions will have less of a chance of storms.

Storms could be strong and we’ll have to watch to be sure they don’t approach severe levels. Although we don’t have a risk from the National Weather Service offices covering Alabama, much of Mississippi does have severe weather potential all the way to the Alabama line. It’s possible that a severe storm or two could cross into our area.

Our weather pattern continues for a couple days, but we may have some better weather this weekend and early next week.
