Cool Night Ahead; Dry Through Thursday : The Alabama Weather Blog2 min read
SEVERE CLEAR: We have a cloudless sky across Alabama this afternoon with temperatures in the 60s over the northern half of the state… 70s are across South Alabama. Tonight will be clear and cool with a low in the 40s… some of the colder pockets across North Alabama will dip into the 30s. Not many mornings left like this before the long, hot summer arrives.
Dry weather continues tomorrow through Thursday with sunny mild days and clear cool nights. Highs in the 70s, lows in the 40s.
FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: We will bring the chance of a few scattered showers Friday afternoon as moisture levels begin to rise, but the rain shouldn’t be especially heavy or widespread. The day will be warmer with a high around 80 degrees. We will maintain the chance of scattered showers over the weekend, but it certainly won’t be a wash-out and we should see sun at times. Highs over the weekend will be generally in the low 80s, close to average for early May in Alabama.
NEXT WEEK: A shower or two will remain possible Monday, but then the weather looks warm and dry Tuesday. Scattered showers are possible over the latter half of week, but again there is no sign of any high impact weather event for the Deep South. And, no sign of any severe weather threat for Alabama for the next 7-10 days, but keep in mind our tornado season does run through the end of May. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
ON THIS DATE IN 1933: An estimated F4 tornado struck Minden, Louisiana, killing 28 people and injuring 400 others. 500 homes were damaged or destroyed with $1.3 million in damage.
ON THIS DATE IN 1953: At least four tornadoes touched down in Alabama, including an estimated EF4 that moved through Clay County from near Millville to Lineville. There were 12 injuries and 7 fatalities reported.
Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
