Rob Elvington is a meteorologist for WAAY.

Title: Meteorologist

Growing up North Carolina I was impacted by severe thunderstorms, snowstorms and the occasional land-falling hurricane. One of my earliest memories is chainsaws clearing trees brought down by Hurricane Hugo in 1989 in Charlotte, NC. I was fascinated by these experiences as a kid and this interest in weather lead me to a B.S. in meteorology from North Carolina State University.

After college I went west to KRCR in far northern California. Unlike the stereotype, California does occasionally see active and severe weather. One of my most important responsibilities in my time in California was tracking fire-weather conditions throughout fire season. I was on-air for several days straight covering both the Carr Fire and Camp Fire in 2018. Over 7 fire seasons I covered dozens of devastating wildfires but the 2018 fire season will stay with me the rest of my life.

My wife and I are thrilled to be in Huntsville and we look forward to exploring the Tennessee Valley.

Hot, humid and afternoon storms Thursday

The coverage of storms will be lower Thursday compared to yesterday but any storm can still produce heavy rain and gusty winds.

Heavy rain and gusty winds from Wednesday storms

Coverage of thunderstorms will likely be higher Wednesday for North Alabama compared to the last couple of days. Intense heavy rain could lead to ponding on roadways and localized flash flooding.

Scattered thunderstorms by Tuesday afternoon

Partly to mostly sunny skies will lead to a quick warm up into Tuesday afternoon. The afternoon heat will lead to a quick transition to scattered thunderstorms.

Less storms Monday but unsettled & muggy pattern continues

The coverage of storms will be lower Monday along with a slight drop in temperatures. Though not as hot as this past holiday weekend, it will still feel like the low to mid 90s this afternoon.

Several rounds of thunderstorms possible Tuesday

Thunderstorm chances are in place all day Tuesday for North Alabama. Stronger storms from out of the north could bring damaging winds and heavy rain by late afternoon.

More storms Monday, unsettled through Independence Day weekend

Scattered thunderstorms ramp up again Monday afternoon. Tropical, humid air-mass keeps storm chances in place each day this week.

Unsettled pattern continues through the weekend

Showers and thunderstorms will pick up in coverage into Friday afternoon. Scattered storms stick around Saturday and Sunday but not a complete washout this weekend.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms Thursday afternoon

Low clouds will erode enough by the afternoon to allow for some sun today. Like the last couple of days, best storm chances in North Alabama will be for areas further south Thursday.

More scattered storms Wednesday

Scattered thunderstorms are possible for all of North Alabama Wednesday but like Tuesday, the best storm chances will be south of the Tennessee River.

Fewer storms Tuesday

Thunderstorms remain possible Tuesday afternoon and evening but coverage should be much lower than Monday's widespread storms.
