Storm chances increasing through the next few days

Storms will fade away tonight and return late Thursday morning. We forecast storms to fire up once temperatures reach the lower 80s Thursday. This will likely happen between 11 a.m.and noon. We expect to see storms become more numerous by Thursday afternoon. All storms will be capable of very heavy rain. Some areas will pick up 1” of rain in less than 30 minutes. We also expect more intense lightning with the Thursday storms.

Storms will be more isolated on Friday with highs returning to the middle to upper 80s. Hit and miss storms are forecast over the weekend with highs near 90. We don’t anticipate any significant impact in North Alabama from Tropical Storm Cristobal. You can get more information on Cristobal on the First Alert Weather App.
