Midday Nowcast: Rain Pushing Off to the East : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

FINAL HOURS OF APRIL: The morning rain and storms are pushing off to the east and south and most locations across North/Central Alabama will be dry this afternoon and evening. We are seeing a mix of sun and clouds today with temperatures climbing into the lower 80s.

ACROSS THE USA: Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible across the Central Plains and Missouri Valley Tuesday afternoon and evening. The main threats will be damaging wind and large hail. A late-season low pressure system will bring widespread high-elevation snow and lower elevation rain across the Pacific Northwest toward the Northern Rockies through Tuesday.

BIRMINGHAM ALMANAC: For April 30th, the average high for Birmingham is 78° and the average low is 56°. The record high is 91° set in 1943, while the record low is 36° set in 1969. We average 0.16” of precipitation on this date, and the record value is 2.13” set in 1929.

TOMORROW/THURSDAY: These two days will be very warm and mainly dry. Expect partly to mostly sunny days, fair nights, and highs in the mid to upper 80s for most places. Some locations will be flirting with 90°.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Another surface front will bring some showers Friday afternoon and Friday night. Saturday looks relatively dry with only isolated showers, then we are expecting an increase in rain coverage Sunday, especially over the northern half of the state. The weekend certainly won’t be a wash-out, but expect some rain at times. Highs will be in the low to mid 80s.

NEXT WEEK: Warm weather continues with highs in the 80s and perhaps low 90s. A fairly moist airmass will be in place, meaning some risk of at least scattered showers on most days. With the main storm track well to the west and north of Alabama, we still see no sign of any high impact weather event for our state through the week (flooding, severe storms, etc).
