A Brief Check on Our Weather as of 1:40 pm

RADAR CHECK AT 1:40 PM

We have a good bit of light to moderate showers over the western half of North/Central Alabama as we head into the mid-afternoon hours on this gray and very humid Wednesday. The eastern half of the area remains mostly dry at this point, but that will change come later this afternoon and through the night-time hours as rain and storms will become even more likely. Other than the watches, warnings, and advisories listed below, we do not have any severe thunderstorm or tornado watches or warnings issued at this time.

Just about all of Central Alabama along and south of the I-59 corridor continues under a level 1 Marginal Risk through the rest of your Wednesday and into the early morning hours on Thursday. A level 2 Slight Risk is up for portions of the southeastern parts of the area.

Temperatures as of the 1:00 pm roundup were in the lower 70s to the mid-80s across the area. Eufaula was leading the way as the warm spot at 85 degrees. Haleyville was the cool spot at 72 degrees. Birmingham was sitting at 77 degrees. These temperatures are relatively close to what we’ll see for afternoon highs, but we may see those rise 1 or 2 degrees warmer before we start to lose the daytime heating.
