Beautiful Today; Rain Returns Friday

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Rain becomes widespread across Alabama Friday and Friday night as a warm front lifts northward. The rain could even be heavy at times, especially over the northern and western counties. The air should be fairly stable, so we don’t expect any severe storms, and probably little lightning. Temperatures should hold in the 60s.

Dry Through Mid-Week; Rain Returns Friday

DRIER AIR RETURNS: Radar shows the last batch of showers over far East and Southeast Alabama early this morning; that rain is rapidly moving into Georgia, and dry air will take over. We are projecting some delightful autumn weather through Thursday with sunny pleasant days and clear chilly nights. Highs will be in the low 70s today and tomorrow, followed by mid 70s Thursday. Lows will be well down in the 40s, with 30s possible for colder spots.

Rain Tonight; Sunny Tomorrow

WET: A large mass of rain covers much of North/Central Alabama this afternoon. Not seeing any lightning over the northern half of the state; the best instability is over South Alabama, where SPC maintains a “slight risk” (level 2/5) of severe storms for tonight. The risk of severe thunderstorm activity for North Alabama is very low, although a “marginal risk” is still in play.

Active Weather Day Ahead For Alabama

STRONG STORMS LATER TODAY: On the maps this morning, a deep surface low will move from the Great Plains up to the Great Lakes region by tonight, dragging a cold front into Alabama. Early morning strong to severe storms are lined up from Southeast Texas into southern Illinois. These storms will weaken and move into Northwest Alabama later this morning. Odds of severe storms over North/Central Alabama look very low during the afternoon as the air will be fairly stable; in fact the first batch of storms should basically dissipate at some point over North Alabama. To the south, storms will maintain their intensity over the southern part of the state, most likely… this is where instability values will be higher.
