Forecaster: James Spann
MOISTURE LEVELS RISING: We will forecast a mix of sun and clouds across the great state of Alabama today, and with rising moisture levels a few scattered showers are possible through tonight. Rain amounts should be light and spotty for most communities, and the high today will be in the mid 80s… about 5-8 degrees below average for the last day of July (Birmingham's average high today is 91).
Moisture levels will be deeper tomorrow, so scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible, and should be a little more numerous.
THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: An axis of deeper moisture will be in place as the weekend begins, so for now Saturday looks like a day with more clouds than sun, and scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms along with a high in the low to mid 80s.
Mixed sun and clouds. A few scattered showers.
Partly sunny. Scattered showers and thunderstorms.
Mostly cloudy; scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms.
