Hot Afternoons Through The Week; Mostly Dry : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

RADAR CHECK: I see two small, isolated showers on radar at mid-afternoon… one over the Tennessee River near Rogersville, and one north of Brilliant in Marion County. Otherwise, the sky is mostly sunny with temperatures in the mid to upper 80s across Alabama. Tonight will be fair with a low in the 60s.

The rest of the week will look and feel like summer across Alabama and the Deep South. Highs through the week will be close to 90 degrees for most places with partly to mostly sunny days and fair nights. We will bring in the chance of a few scattered showers or storms Friday for the northern third of the state with a weak front to the north, but South Alabama will stay dry.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Not much change. Hot, dry weather for the southern counties of the state; a few scattered showers and storms for North Alabama, mostly during the afternoon and evening hours. Nothing really widespread or heavy. Highs will stay close to 90 degrees… not a bad kickoff to the summer season.

REST OF NEXT WEEK: There is evidence we could see an increase in the number of showers and thunderstorms across Alabama by Tuesday/Wednesday as the upper ridge weakens; highs drop into the mid 80s by then. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

SEC TOURNAMENT: The SEC baseball tournament begins tomorrow in Hoover, and runs through Sunday. The weather looks very favorable with partly to mostly sunny days, fair nights, and highs around 90 degrees. There is an outside risk of a brief passing shower or storm during the afternoon and evening hours Friday through Sunday, but otherwise the weather will be dry.

ON THIS DATE IN 1957: A tornado touched down to the southwest of Kansas City and traveled a distance of seventy-one miles cutting a swath of near destruction through the southeastern suburbs of Ruskin Heights and Hickman Mills. The tornado claimed the lives of forty-five persons and left hundreds homeless.

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