Storms stick around all week

Rain and storms are a persistent feature in our forecast for the next several days.

They'll still be most likely in the afternoon and evenings. Tonight, any lingering showers fade past sunset and we'll be left with a partly cloudy sky. Areas of fog are possible late and lows dip to the lower 70s. For Tuesday, rain and storms increase in coverage for the second half of the day.

A center of low pressure that's moved inland off the Gulf will be the main driving factor in our storm chances through Wednesday. It's currently located over south Georgia and will continue to track eastward over the next 48 hours. With some daytime heating, storms develop during the afternoon Tuesday across the southeast, tracking northwestward through North Alabama. Even without an outlined risk for severe weather, stronger storms can produce gusty wind and heavy rain. In fact, flooding will be the top concern with the storms in the coming days. Temperatures won't be quite as hot when you factor in the increase in cloud. However, it'll still be uncomfortably humid.  A very similar day is on tap Wednesday.

By Friday, we still have storms in the forecast but the pattern shifts. With the surface low well up the eastern seaboard, our storms heading into the weekend will mainly be driven by a series of disturbances tracking out of the Midwest. At least of couple of complexes of storms will be pushing out of the northwest starting Friday, so expect rain and storms off and on through the weekend as a result. The chance for a strong to even severe storm exists over the weekend, as does the continued concern for flooding.
