Our shower and storm chances will continue to linger not just through this weekend but through Memorial Day.

For the rest of Saturday, we are looking at showers and storms forming and remaining through maybe as late as Midnight tonight. Once we get into Sunday we probably won't see any more activity until 12 p.m.. 

Sunday afternoon will be more of the same where we will start to see an increase in storms the later we go into the afternoon. So if you do have any plans be sure to know that lightning will be the biggest threat for Sunday and Memorial Day. 

Breaking down Memorial Day we won't see much rain during the morning. But once we get into the afternoon winds will be breezy with gusts up to 15 mph and on the water gusts could go as high as 25 mph. Rain chances will increase steadily once we get into the afteroon with scattered storms likely through the evening. 


As of 2 p.m. Saturday Subtropical Storm Alberto continues to make a line towards Mobile early Monday morning. Which again does not bode well at all if your plans are along the Gulf. 

The only chances are really the path as it draws near to the Valley. There has been a westward shift of about 40 miles. Which still puts the Valley in an area where we could see a few hours worth of very heavy rain with an increased risk for flash flooding. Between Monday evening through Wednesday morning we could see areas get up to 2" of rainfall with localized amounts up to 4" depending on the movement of storms. Winds will also be gusty with gusts up to 30 mph at times. 

The rain will begin to become less intense early Wednesday morning. But Alberto aside we will continue to see rain chances up until the weekend.
