A Few Scattered Showers/Storms Through Tomorrow : The Alabama Weather Blog

3 min read

RADAR CHECK: While much of Alabama is rain-free, we note a few scattered thunderstorms over the northern counties at mid-afternoon with temperatures inn the low to mid 80s. Showers and a few storms will remain possible through the evening, but they will be random and scattered, much like a summer day.

Tomorrow will feature a mostly cloudy sky with a high in the low 80s; a few scattered showers or storms are possible with the approach of a surface front, but no wash-out.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: That front will sag slowly southward across Alabama over the weekend. Saturday will be a cloudy day with a chance of showers; the high will be in the 70s. Then, on Sunday, a wave of low pressure along the front will bring widespread rain to the state. Still, it won’t rain all day, and rain amounts should be 1/2 inch or less for most places. It will be much cooler over the northern half of the state Sunday with temperatures holding in the 50s all day; it will be a sharp change from the recent warmth.

NEXT WEEK: Dry weather returns to Alabama Monday and Tuesday with a warming trend; the high Monday will be around 70, followed by upper 70s Tuesday. The latest global models suggest there could be a few showers around during the latter half of the week, but still nothing to suggest any severe storm/heavy rain threat. The high will be close to 80 Wednesday through Friday… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

RACE WEEKEND: A few passing showers are likely Saturday at the Talladedga Superspeedway, but there is a decent chance they get the races in with a high in the 70s. The weather Sunday will be more problematic with rain expected to be more widespread. Still, not raining all day, and there is a chance they get the Geico 500 in, but also understand there is a chance it will have to be run Monday, when dry weather returns to Alabama.

Sunday will be sharply cooler with temperatures hovering in the mid to upper 50s through the day with a cool north breeze along with the rain.

ON THIS DATE IN 1906: At 5:12 AM, a magnitude 7.8 earthquake hits San Francisco. A devastating fire soon broke out in the city and lasted for several days. About 3,000 people died, and over 80 percent of San Francisco was destroyed.

ON THIS DATE IN 1969: An F4 tornado moved through northern Sumter County in West Alabama; 2 people were killed as 18 homes were destroyed near Panola. Farm buildings were destroyed near Ramer. Several homes were damaged or destroyed near Fitzpatrick where injuries occurred. This may have been a family of tornadoes.

Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
