Midday Nowcast: Warm with Sun and Clouds2 min read
The upper ridge in place will continue our warming trend this afternoon and tomorrow. Today we are seeing a mix of sun and clouds, and some light showers over North Alabama, but the clouds should mix out and mainly sunny conditions expected later today and tomorrow.
Highs this afternoon will surge into the low 80s, followed by mid 80s tomorrow.
ACROSS THE USA: A spring Storm moving through the West today will cross the Rockies Friday where it is then expected to strengthen over the Plains. Dry, gusty winds will continue critical to extremely critical fire weather across the High Plains into the Southwest U.S. through Saturday. Heavy snow is expected in the northern Plains by Saturday with severe thunderstorms over the central and southern Plains.
WARM WEEKEND WEATHER: The warmest weekend so far this year across Alabama is ahead. Both days will feature more sun than clouds with highs in the mid to upper 80s, while lows will range from the upper 50s to low 60s.
RACE WEEKEND: The weather will be warm and dry over the weekend at Talladega. For the Geico 500 Sunday, the sky will be partly to mostly sunny with temperatures in the 82-85 degree range. Morning lows at the Superspeedway will be close to 60 degrees.
NEXT WEEK: Moisture returns ahead of a front on Monday, and some showers are in the forecast late Monday and into Tuesday. Rain amounts will be fairly light due to limited moisture, and this doesn’t look like a severe weather setup. Behind the front, the rest of next week looks cooler with highs in the 70s. No signs of widespread rain or severe weather showing up in the models through the end of the month.
