Not the most dramatic sunset view from our Peach Chevrolet drone this evening… Just west of Brewton, Alabama. Clouds from the decaying showers and storms made it difficult to see the sunset. Enjoy the evening! Sunny, warm days are ahead.
Radar update as of 1:17PM shows convective activity (showers and thunderstorms) increasing across interior areas of southwest Alabama… None of these storms are expected to be severe today, but heavy downpours of rain and lightning are happening…
FEW SHOWERS LATER… Quite similar to what played out on Tuesday, a few of us could have isolated showers later this afternoon. Most places across the region will be dry, however. 20% chance of rain after 1PM across southwest Alabama and northwest Florida. I’ll have your video forecast posted on Facebook and here in the RedZone Weather app by 7:30AM. Enjoy the day!
STUNNING DAY… It’s a beautiful day across Alabama and northwest Florida. Temperatures are in the 60s as of Noon and we’re headed to around 71° for an afternoon high.
COLD OVERNIGHT… If you’re planning to be out and about this evening, you’ll may even need a light jacket, as temperatures will be around 58° by 8PM. Lows return to the lower-40s across much of south Alabama by daybreak on Friday.
There are currently several severe thunderstorm warnings in progress across west Alabama. A tornado watch continues for Washington, Clarke, Mobile, and Baldwin counties in southwest Alabama valid until 9AM. Counties further east will likely go under a tornado watch in the next few hours…
