We should expect Typical August weather, said James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist. These conditions will “continue across Alabama through Saturday with hot, humid days and random, scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers and thunderstorms.”
The NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center August 2021 Climate Outlook notes that the southeast is “favored to observe a wetter-than-average August.” Also, that our region should expect the “beginning of August is a wet one. And even though things are not expected to be nearly as wet in the region for the rest of the month, the sheer amount of rain that could fall during the first week helps to tilt odds to a wetter-than-average month.”
