Alabama Skies: Rainy weather pattern begins. Will severe storms mess up holiday plans?

Published 10:08 pm Sunday, July 2, 2023

Our pattern change begins Monday across the state with much better chances of rain and thunderstorms. Temperatures are going to be a few degrees cooler for most of us, but still hot and humid.

Monday will bring chances for late afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms for all of us. A Level 1 risk covers just about the entire state.

Risks include hail, damaging winds, and heavy rain. We’re not expecting widespread severe weather, but any storm that develops could become strong to severe.

As far as events go, a couple celebrations could get wet and there will be a lightning danger with storms, but right now, it seems delays instead of cancellations would suffice.
