MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Rain chances will remain above average through the middle of the week.

We saw a good number of showers and storms today with locally heavy downpours. We are on the outer edge of the Bermuda Ridge. This feature is promoting a southerly flow of wind and an influx of moisture. .

We also have a slight weakness aloft as we are positioned between the ridge over the 4 corners and the Atlantic. The upper pattern and the unusually high moisture values are combining to give us likely rain chances Tuesday and Wednesday. 

We should see a return to more typical scattered storms by the end of the week. Tropical storm formation is not expected in the next 5 days in the Atlantic Basin.

We usually see an increase in tropical activity by the middle of August. So, now is the time to prepare for the more significant part of the tropical season.
