Cool with rain today

A soggy and stormy start to the week...

Our next front coming in late today, tonight and Sunday. That rain will taper off for the most part overnight with a few lingering showers into your day on Monday. Strong to severe storms are expected. "Rainfall totals should be around 1-2" with locally higher amounts so street, low-lying and poor drainage flooding will be possible.

Thursday night: 30 percent chance of showers. Right now, it looks like rain chances will tick higher by the end of the week. The record lowest maximum high for today is 71, set in 1991.

The first wave of wet weather will move in during the day Saturday.

Tuesday night - Partly cloudy, with a low around 58.

We won't get out of the 80s today due to clouds and showers; the average high for August 7 (at Birmingham) is 91.

Thursday and Friday holds a slight chance of storms but will keep it on Thursday mainly in the morning from Wednesday night's storm potential. The overnights will continue to be warm and muggy, in the lower to mid 70s each night.

High temperatures this afternoon will be in the low-middle 90s, but when with the humidity it will feel more like 100°-103°. One is about 150 miles to the east of Honduras. Far north may see an isolated shower this afternoon as well.

Another area of storms had developed across New Mexico and this is the activity that could impact the South Plains Sunday and Monday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 45 miles per hour with higher gusts. Hurricane Watches in effect for the Yucatan Peninsula.
