Barry Brings Rain to Us
SOME LOCALIZED FLOODING POSSIBLE
Strong southerly flow will continue to inject tropical moisture into our area, so a good chance for showers and thunderstorms will remain with us through early next week. Other than rain, not expecting Tropical Storm Barry to have a significant impact on our area if his current track holds firm. 1″ (locally heavier amounts) of rainfall is possible through Tuesday. There could be some localized flooding.
Slow movement, warm water and low wind shear will allow the chance for Tropical Storm Barry to become Hurricane Barry (barely a Category 1) by the time he makes landfall Saturday along the coast of Louisiana. Once Barry moves inland up into the Mississippi River Valley, models have him staying well west of our area (west of I-65 in Alabama could see some strong winds), so the impact for us should just be the rainfall mentioned above.
Daytime highs will trend below average through early next week with nightly lows hovering near seasonal.
TODAY- Showers and thunderstorms likely in the afternoon under mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the upper 80s. Heat indices in the upper 90s.
TONIGHT- Mostly cloudy with showers and thunderstorms likely. Lows in the mid 70s.
SATURDAY- Showers and thunderstorms likely under mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the upper 80s.
SATURDAY NIGHT- Scattered showers and thunderstorms then mostly cloudy overnight. Lows in the low 70s.
SUNDAY- Scattered showers and thunderstorm under mostly cloudy skies. Highs in the mid 80s.
