Alabama Skies: More storms possible across the state

Published 10:03 pm Wednesday, June 21, 2023

Although the threat for widespread severe storms in over, we’re still having the chance for scattered to widespread storms across the state Thursday as a pesky low pressure remains in the region.

Some places may receive some heavy rainfall and strong storms, but clouds and rain is keeping Alabama cooler. Other states in the region are experiencing dangerous heat index values up to 110 degrees.

We’re also watching Tropical Storm Bret continue the westward track. We’re still expecting some interference in the strengthening, but it’s certainly worth watching for now. Wind speeds jumped 20 miles per hour Wednesday, nearing hurricane strength. There is also another disturbance with an 80 percent chance of forming not far behind.

  • Location: 133.5 North, 55.2 West
