Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out very nice today, thanks to a cooler and dry airmass. Most areas reached the lower 80s this afternoon under a full day of sunshine. Since the air over Alabama is very dry, temperatures will drop fast this evening. Areas will reach the middle 70s at 7pm and middle 60s at 10pm. Lows will reach the lower 50s tonight. I wouldn’t be shocked if a few upper 40s show up north of I-20. For late May, we will deal with some chilly nights over the weekend.
The entire Memorial Day Weekend is looking really nice. We can expect sunny skies and dry air on Saturday and Sunday, with afternoon highs in the middle 80s on Saturday and upper 80s on Sunday and Monday. Lows will remain cool, with lower 50s tonight and Saturday night. We’ll gradually increase into the upper 50s Sunday night and lower 60s Monday night. A surface high will remain close by through Monday, so our weather will feature quiet weather.
Early next week, a light south breeze will take over. We can expect hot and rather humid weather to gradually make a return, especially by mid week. Look for daytime temperatures to reach the lower 90s, with lows in the lower to middle 60s. Skies become partly cloudy by the middle of next week.
If you have a beach trip planned to Alabama’s Gulf Coast over the holiday weekend, the weather is looking good. Highs will reach the upper 80s Saturday through Monday, with lows in the 60s. Skies will remain sunny for the entire weekend. Water temperatures have now warmed to around 80 degrees, which is rather cool for some…
