2 min read

WARMING TREND CONTINUES: We note a few sprinkles near the Alabama/Tennessee state line early this morning associated with an Alberta Clipper, but for most of the state the air is very dry, and it will be another rain-free day today. With a partly to mostly sunny sky the high today will be in the 60s. The weather stays dry tomorrow with lots of sun and a high in the 67-73 degree range.

RAIN RETURNS: Clouds will increase Thursday, and we will introduce a chance of rain by afternoon across the Tennessee Valley. Then, a few periods of rain are likely statewide Thursday night. There could be a rumble of thunder in spots, but no severe storms are expected, and rain amounts will be light (mostly under 1/2 inch). Temperatures will likely reach the low 70s Thursday afternoon despite the increase in clouds.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: The sky will clear Friday with a high in the 60s, and very nice weekend is ahead. Expect ample sunshine both days… the high Saturday will be in the 60s, and close to 70 Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Expect the warmest weather so far this year Monday through Wednesday with highs in the 70s, a few spots could touch 80 degrees by Tuesday across South Alabama. A round of showers and storms is likely at mid-week, most likely on Wednesday, ahead of a cold front. A few strong storms could be involved, but for now it looks like the main dynamic support will be passing to the north and severe storms don’t look especially likely. Highs drop back into the 60s Thursday and Friday. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1912: A strong area of low pressure produced snow in Amarillo and high winds to Austin, Texas. In the warm sector of the low, severe storms developed and produced an estimated F3 tornado in Shreveport, Louisiana. The tornado killed nine people and injured 50 others.

ON THIS DATE IN 1939: A tornado touched down in Clay County near Cragford, killing one person and injuring nine others.

ON THIS DATE IN 1995: The temperature at the Civic Center in Los Angeles, California, soared to 95 degrees, the highest ever recorded at the location during February.

Look for the next video briefing here by 3:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
