Tuesday Afternoon Discussion Update

We managed to see a few stray showers this afternoon over portions of northern Pickens County, southern Lamar, and Fayette Counties. This activity was in response to energy from an upper air disturbance spinning over Texas. The main storm system to our west will finally make an eastward move starting tomorrow and continuing into the day on Friday.

For now we will continue to have partly to mostly cloudy skies, with lows in the 50s tonight. Tomorrow the clouds will be around and we will have a good chance for a passing shower or thunderstorm. Highs tomorrow will be in the middle 70s. Thursday we will have another good chance for a passing shower or thunderstorm. I can’t rule out a strong or severe thunderstorm.

A cold front will be dropping into the area on Friday and this front will bring a return to cooler temperatures for the weekend. Temperatures won’t be too bad during the daytime hours as we enter the weekend. The big story will be at night, as lows will be dropping into the 30s in many locations. I still can’t rule out the freezing mark for outlying locations like Berry, Samantha, and Belk, areas north of Tuscaloosa. Lots of sunshine can be expected over the weekend.

Look for a warming trend to quickly begin by Monday, with a pleasant start to next week. Another rainmaker will be arriving around the Wednesday/Thursday timeframe of next week. Join us at five, six, and ten for more details!
