Nice Week Ahead – Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_642.JPG

After the cold front that came through late last night brought some rain with it, we dried out today here in Tuscaloosa and saw the sun some. Temperatures only made it to the upper 50s, which is below average for this time of year (the average is right around 74 degrees). We’ll make it way past that later this week though.

There has been a freeze warning issued for areas along I-20 and north that will expire at 9 AM tomorrow.

As for your Monday, expect nothing but sunshine and temperatures to warm into the upper 60s. You could wake up to some patchy frost in the morning. Tuesday will continue to be dry and sunny and that will also be the case for Wednesday.

Thursday afternoon will be our next best chance to see some rain here in central Alabama and a few thunderstorms mixed in. I’m expecting everything as of now to stay below severe limits though. Thunderstorms and rain will come later into the evening on Thursday and carry over into Friday. Friday I’m expecting more widespread thunderstorms throughout the day.

Temperatures will make it into the lower 80s by Saturday and we dry out just in time for the weekend.

Continuing to Track Thunderstorms and Rain – Sunday Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_641.JPG

The atmosphere just didn’t quite make it to where it needed to be to produce severe weather for today, but that’s always a good thing! I’m thinking the severe risk for weather has ended here in Alabama, but I’m continuing to keep my eye on thunderstorms just in case a severe storm does pop up. The tornado threat has ended, so that’s some good news. If anything, damaging straight line winds will be the continuing threat.

After the rain ends late tonight/early morning hours of Sunday, we’ll be left with mostly sunny skies. It’s not going to rain all day on Sunday, showers will in fact end in the late morning hours, possibly even before then. Sunny and dry conditions will persist all the way until late Thursday night, which will be our next best chance to see rain/thunderstorms here in central Alabama.

Our temperatures are going to be very seasonable next week. The high for tomorrow will be our coolest day of the week due to the cold front that is currently pushing through Alabama causing rain. After tomorrow, temperatures rise into the mid 60s, and will make it to almost 80 degrees by Friday, which is why I have the chance for thunderstorms instead of just rain showers. Friday’s rain will be sporadic and not wide spread.

Enjoy the warmer weather and dry weather for the week ahead! Maybe catch some rays by the pool, I know I will be.

Rain/T’Storms Late Saturday Night into Early Sunday Morning – Friday Forecast Update @wvua23 #alwx

Sevenday_640 (6)

Today was a nice day here in Tuscaloosa! Plenty of sunshine and temperatures almost made it to 80 degrees here! Tonight you can expect low temperatures to be in the mid to lower 50s and mostly cloudy skies.

Expect the warm trend to carry over into tomorrow. Highs will be near 80 degrees again, and mostly cloudy conditions for tomorrow as well. We’ll remain dry until we start to reach the overnight hours tomorrow as a cold front will push through and trail showers and thunderstorms with it. I’m expecting storms to remain below severe limits tomorrow, but gusty winds could be an issue. Showers will carry over into early Sunday morning, but once the rain ends we’ll be left with mostly sunny skies. High temperatures will be in the upper 50s/lower 60s for Sunday too.

As for the week ahead, temperatures remain on the warmer side, we’ll make it all the way to 77 come Thursday. We’ll remain dry and sunny all the way until Friday, which will be our next best chance to see rain/few thunderstorms.

Enjoy the weekend!

Great Spring Weather! Rain Saturday Night… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -SHELTON STATE Forecast - Offset Lows - PM.pngGood Thursday afternoon! Our local weather turned out very nice on this spring day, with sunny skies and mild temperatures. Most spots reached the middle 70s in our area, under the sunny sky. Expect a cool night tonight, with lows in the upper 40s.

Clouds increase on Friday, but rain is not expected. We’ll have a light south breeze, with a high in the middle 70s. Expect a partly sunny start to the weekend. There could be a few showers Saturday afternoon, but widespread rain is not expected until Saturday night. Most areas will only receive 0.25″ to 0.50″ out of this event, so don’t expect flooding issues.

Cooler air comes in on Sunday, with a high in the lower 60s. We’ll drop into the lower 40s Sunday night. Skies remain partly sunny on Monday. We’ll start the day off in the low 40s, with a high in the middle 60s. A few showers will be possible Monday night into Tuesday morning. Look for a nice warm-up by the middle of next week, as sunshine returns!

Beautiful Thursday & Friday Ahead… Wednesday PM Update

7day

NICE DAYS AHEAD… Chilly nights and beautiful, sunny days are upcoming for Thursday into Friday. Temperatures are on a gradual increasing trend. High temperatures will peak in the low-70s on Thursday. We rise into the mid-70s for Friday. Our next chance of rain happens late Saturday as a cold front approaches from the northwest. For now, severe weather seems unlikely across central Alabama, but there could be a few strong storms well to our northwest across the Mid-South region. Let’s look at a few details…

PLENTY OF SUNSHINE TODAY & TOMORROW… Ample sunshine is likely on Thursday into Friday. We start each day in the 40s but quickly rebound into the 60s in the latter half of each morning. Afternoon highs each day will be in the mid-70s.

FEW SHOWERS & STORMS SATURDAY… Much of the day on Saturday should be dry but there will inevitably be a few showers & storms around Saturday evening into Sunday morning as a cold front approaches. There is a chance that some spots may be completely dry as showers and storms should be scattered. We note that instability values will be limited Saturday evening into Sunday, thus likely limiting the overall severe weather potential.

MUCH COOLER ON SUNDAY… Temperatures will drop after the passage of a cold front early Sunday morning. Highs on Sunday likely won’t recover into the 70s and I expect most spots to be in the 60s by 3PM with clouds hanging tough.

LINGERING SHOWERS INTO MONDAY… I expect much of the day Monday to be dry, but there could be a few showers in the morning hours in place across east Alabama. Highs on Monday will be in the 60s.

JOIN US ON TELEVISION… Chief Meteorologist Richard Scott is off today and I’m excited to be back at WVUA23-TV just for this evening. I look forward to seeing you at 5, 6, and 10 o’clock.

Dry Through Friday… Nice Weather Ahead! Tuesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

ASDFA.png

Good Tuesday afternoon! There’s big spread in temperatures from west Alabama to east Alabama. A cool air wedge coming out of Georgia has temperatures generally in the 50s east of I-65, under a cloudy sky, but west Alabama is in the upper 60s with sunshine. Expect a clearing sky tonight, with a low in the lower 40s.

The cool air wedge will mix out on Wednesday, with most of central and west Alabama warming into the 70s. Middle 70s will be expected for Friday and Saturday before another front arrives Saturday night. Showers and a few storms will move in late in the day on Saturday and into Saturday night. Severe weather is not expected at this time.

The air will turn a little cooler on Sunday into the day on Monday…

6pm Monday, Severe Risk Over for Our Area… #alwx @wvua23

sa2df3232.pngAt 6pm, the broken line of severe storms has pushed south of our southern row of counties (Marengo, Perry, Chilton, Coosa) and is moving southeast approaching Selma and Montgomery.

We’ve had reports of large hail and wind damage across portions of central Alabama, where the storms made it to the severe weather listing.

Areas northwest of the severe storms are in the clear, as drier air takes over..
