Morning clouds have given way to some intervals of sunshine as we roll into the afternoon hours. There are a few very light showers across Alabama but for the most part, it remains mainly dry across the state and very warm as temperatures again surge into the 80s.
TONIGHT: Rain will return to Alabama tonight as a band of showers and storms pushes through the state. The SPC has removed the level 2/5 “slight risk” and left a “marginal risk” (level 1/5) for the northern half of the state as a few storms could produce some gusty and maybe small hail with a slight increase in instability.
The tornado threat is very low, but not zero. Rainfall amounts should be around the one-half inch. Most of the showers will push down into South Alabama after midnight.
FINALLY FRIDAY: Behind the front, tomorrow will be a bit cooler with highs back in the 70s. We should see more sun than clouds across the northern half of the state.
FIRST WEEKEND OF MAY: Saturday will be dry and very nice day of weather with a good supply of sunshine and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. Sunday will feature more clouds than sun, and we will mention a chance of scattered rain showers, especially late in the day and into Sunday night. Highs Sunday will be in the 80s.
