2 min read

LIKE SPRING: Temperatures are in the 67-74 degree range across Alabama this afternoon with a good supply of sunshine. We note the average high for Birmingham on February 21 is 61. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 40s for most places.

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: Clouds will increase across Alabama tomorrow ahead a cold front, and showers are possible by afternoon across the northern half of the state. Then, showers are likely statewide tomorrow night as the cold front passes through. There could be a rumble of thunder in spots, but there is no risk of severe storms, and rain amounts should be 1/2 inch or less for most places. Temperatures will rise into the low 70s tomorrow afternoon before the arrival of the front.

Then, on Friday, expect a clearing sky with a high in the 60s.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Finally, a dry, pleasant weekend for Alabama and the Deep South. Look for a good supply of sunshine both days with highs in the low to mid 60s Saturday, followed by upper 60s and low 70s Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Highs rise into the 70s over the first half of the week; some spots could see 80 degree warmth by Tuesday for the first time in 2024. Showers and storms return Wednesday and Wednesday night; a few strong storms are certainly possible based on the setup. But, for now it looks like the main dynamic forcing will be north of Alabama, and instability values are relatively low. Highest severe weather threat most likely will be to the north and west of here, but this event is a week out and we just know details yet.

Highs drop back into the 60s Thursday and Friday as dry air returns to the state. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.
