James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a more organized band of rain and storms will push into the state late Wednesday and Wednesday night ahead of a cold front. SPC has much of the state in a severe weather risk in their "Day 4" outlook... for now, the main threat most likely will come from strong winds, with an outside risk of a tornado. The higher severe weather probabilities this week will be west of Alabama, where dynamic forcing and instability values will be considerably higher.”

There is a concern for some flash flooding across the area. The Weather Channel noted that “given the recent rounds of severe weather across the South, there is at least some threat of flash flooding where heavy rain occurs. Some spots may pick up 2-4" of rain in the upcoming work week.”

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
