Frost For North Alabama Early Tomorrow; Warmer Sunday : The Alabama Weather Blog

3 min read

DRY THROUGH SUNDAY: Sunny weather continues across Alabama today with a high in the 60s for most communities this afternoon. Tonight will be clear and cold, and with no wind we expect frost to form over the northern half of the state early tomorrow morning with lows mostly in the 34-40 degree range. Colder spots could see a light freeze. On this positive side, there is a good chance this will be the last frost/freeze threat of the season for most of the state.

Sunny weather continues tomorrow with a high in the 66-72 degree range. Dry weather continues Sunday; the sky will be partly sunny with a high in the mid to upper 70s. Clouds will increase by late afternoon, and a few showers could reach Northwest Alabama Sunday night.

NEXT WEEK: Alabama’s weather will be unsettled next week. Monday will be mostly cloudy with a few scattered showers possible. Rain will be more widespread Tuesday through Thursday with occasional showers and a few thunderstorms daily. The rain could be heavy at times, and some communities could easily see over three inches of rain before it ends Thursday evening. Some flooding issues can’t be ruled out.

There could also be a window where strong thunderstorms are possible, but for now the pattern doesn’t look like a big severe weather setup. But, of course, this is April and any system has to be watched closely. Dry air returns Friday with a partly to mostly sunny sky… highs will be in the 70s through the week. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

SOLAR ECLIPSE: Alabama will experience a partial solar eclipse Monday afternoon from roughly 12:15 until 3:15; it peaks close to 2:00. Unfortunately it looks like the sky will be mostly cloudy, with perhaps the exception of Southeast Alabama. But, some thin spots are possible over the northern counties as well. And, don’t forget you need the proper eclipse glasses.

ON THIS DATE IN 1936: Approximately 454 people were killed in the second-deadliest tornado outbreak ever in U.S. More than 12 twisters struck Arkansas to South Carolina. An estimated F5 tornado cut a path 400 yards wide through the residential section of Tupelo, Mississippi. At least 216 people were killed, and 700 were injured. The tornado had a 15-mile long path and did $3 million in damage. One of the survivors in Tupelo was a baby of an economically strapped family who had an infant they’d recently named Elvis Aaron Presley. Gainesville, Georgia had at least 203 fatalities and 934 injuries from an estimated F4 tornado that occurred early the following morning.

A total of 13 people were killed in Alabama during this outbreak, most of them in Franklin, Colbert, and Limestone counties.

I will be on the road today, so no afternoon video briefing, but I will post forecast notes late this afternoon… enjoy the day!
