More occasionally-heavy storms move through the area at times Thursday. All-day rain? No. A chance of some rain at almost any time? Yes.
Showers and a few storms begin early Thursday over Tennessee and northwestern Alabama and track southeast through the morning.
This first wave ends around 1-2 PM, and then more spotty, hit-or-miss, locally-heavy thunderstorms ‘pop’ again as temperatures slowly recover into the lower and middle 80s between 2 PM and 5 PM. A few storms Thursday afternoon and evening could pack a punch with gusty winds, heavy rainfall and a lot of lightning: especially from around Cullman, Albertville and Fort Payne southward through Central Alabama.
High school football games on Thursday evening may have to contend with a lightning delay (or at the very least wet bleachers after earlier rainfall). The farther south a game is played, the more likely it is that you have to deal with a downpour.
At these games Thursday evening, temperatures will be in the 70s with a gentle south-southwest wind as the isolated evening thunderstorms fade away:
- Lexington @ Lauderdale Co.
- West Morgan @ Good Hope
- Decatur @ Russellville
- Colbert Co. @ Brooks
- Albertville @ Arab
- Deshler @ Muscle Shoals
- Priceville @ West Point
