Warmer Weather Ahead…. Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Untitled

Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather started off cool this morning, but with the bright spring sunshine, we warmed nicely this afternoon. Most of our area warmed into the lower to middle 70s this afternoon. Expect a partly cloudy sky tonight, with a low in upper 40s.

Friday will include another warm day, as we will warm into the upper 70s during the afternoon. Skies will be partly cloudy on Friday, and we will continue with a partly cloudy sky over the weekend as well. Expect highs in the upper 70s to near 80 on Saturday and Sunday. I can’t rule out a brief shower, but most of our area will remain dry.

Monday through Thursday of next week will feature a mild and muggy setup, with the risk of a few scattered showers and storms from time to time. At this time, it appears any rain will be scattered and not overly widespread or heavy. We’ll keep an eye on trends.

Good Wednesday afternoon! Today has turned out to be a beautiful spring day, with a high in the lower 70s over west Alabama and 60s over east Alabama. Expect a clear and cool night, with a low in the lower to middle 40s tonight.

70s return area-wide on Thursday and Friday, under a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky. Models keep our area mostly dry through the weekend, with only a small chance of an isolated shower or storm over the weekend. I expect a better chance of scattered showers and some storms on Monday.

Most areas will reach the 78 to 81 degree range on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Cooler for Now… Warmer Tomorrow Afternoon and this Weekend… Tuesday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

UntitledGood Tuesday afternoon! Pretty much on target, we dealt with a round of rain and storms this morning, quickly ending from west to east by late morning. There were some reports of damaging wind gusts here and there across west and central Alabama, with the tornado reports happening well south of our area in south Alabama.

Temperatures are a bit cooler today and we’ll fall into the lower 40s, with some 30s north of I-20 tonight. Look for a return of sunshine on Wednesday, with a high in the upper 60s to lower 70s. 70s will be more likely over west Alabama to the south of Tuscaloosa.

70s return area-wide on Thursday and Friday, under a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky. Models keep our area mostly dry through the weekend, with only a small chance of an isolated shower or storm over the weekend. I expect a better chance of showers and some storms on Monday.

Rain/Storms Tuesday, Nice by Mid-Week… Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Untitled

Good Monday afternoon! Today turned out to be another nice spring day across the state, with many areas reaching into the upper 70s. Clouds are increasing this afternoon and this process will continue tonight, as a surface low approaches from the west.

Rain will arrive early Tuesday morning over west Alabama, then spread east through the morning and early afternoon. There is a low end severe risk for areas generally south of I-20, with the main risk being damaging winds. A brief tornado can’t be ruled out over southern portions of Alabama, mainly along and south of HWY 80. Temperatures will remain in the 60s all day for northern and central Alabama.

Tuesday night, we’ll fall into the lower 40s, with some 30s north of I-20. Look for a return of sunshine on Wednesday, with a high in the upper 60s.

70s return on Thursday and Friday, under a partly cloudy to mostly sunny sky. Models keep our area mostly dry through the weekend, with only a small chance of an isolated shower or storm over the weekend.

Mild Temperatures This Week. Storms Return Tuesday. Sunday forecast update 9pm #alwx @wvua23

7 Day -10PM SHOWWe saw a nice and mild day today in Alabama after storms from last night and early this morning pushed off to the east.  Temperatures behind the cold front that brought those showers were much cooler. Instead of the mid to upper 80s like the last few days, highs only reached into the upper 70s. Still well above our normal average of 72.

Tonight will be pleasant and cool in the mid 50s. Tomorrow will be another dry day with just a little more cloud cover than we saw today. Highs will be in the mid 70s.

Our next storm system moves in Monday night into Tuesday. A frontal system associated with low pressure will move through Alabama Tuesday and give us the chance for strong to severe storms. The SPC has issued a 2/5 risk for more southern AL and a 1/5 risk for portions of central AL. However, where this low pressure is located when it moves in will determine how far north the severe threat exist. The impacts look to include strong damaging winds, hail, and a brief isolated tornado can’t be ruled out.

After the storms move through sunshine returns back for your Wednesday and Thursday!
