After the wet and stormy night, the weather is improving across Alabama today. The sky continues to clear with mild temperatures in the lower 70s this afternoon. Tonight will be clear and chilly with lows in the mid to upper 40s. Tomorrow will be dry with ample sunshine; high will be close to 80 degrees.
EASTER WEEKEND WEATHER: The front will move back north as a warm front and stall across Alabama, bringing rain and storms back to the state both days this weekend. We expect periods of rain Saturday and Sunday with highs in the 70s both days. It won’t rain all weekend, but if you have something planned outside be ready for off and on rain, along with a rumble of thunder at times.
Also, we note the SPC has defined a low end, “marginal risk” of severe thunderstorms for parts of West and South Alabama Saturday… for areas south of a line from Aliceville to Montgomery to Abbeville. A few storms in that part of the state could produce strong, gusty winds and hail along the frontal boundary.
