Chance a shower or thunderstorm could impact areas further south this afternoon

Posted: Updated:

BIRMINGHAM,AL (WBRC) - The weather setup across the area today remains very divided. Areas north of I-20 continue to deal with lots of rain while areas further south have remained mostly dry. There is still a chance a shower or thunderstorm could impact areas further south this afternoon but that chance is a bit lower. The latest radar trend shows more of a west to east motion and orientation to the rain. The rain is expect to exit the region during the evening hours with some lingering clouds. I do think we could see some fog development overnight, especially is the areas that have received most of the rainfall.

So will we see more rain on radar tomorrow? There could be one or two stray showers but the chance for rain looks much lower. The pattern will be in a transition phase tomorrow as a strong high pressure ridge builds overhead. This will set the stage for a long stretch of hot and dry weather. Find out when to expect some toasty 90º temperatures beginning at 9 p.m. on Fox6.

Three EF-0 Tornadoes Confirmed: The National Weather Service in Birmingham has completed a preliminary storm damage survey from the severe weather event last Wednesday. There was a very low end threat for severe weather this past Wednesday but the tropically moist environment produced some isolated thunderstorms that managed to rotate in East Alabama. Three tornadoes did touch down. One EF-0 with winds of 85 mph touched down just south of highway 280 in Alexander City. This tornado tracked nearly two miles, toppling trees and producing some structural related damage. Another EF-0 briefly touched down just northwest of Millerville in Clay County. The third tornado was also an EF-0 and it touched down near the Perote Community in Bullock County. This was also a brief touch down as the tornado tracked for just under a mile.
