Still Dry Today; Showers Are Possible Tonight Through Sunday : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

WARM MAY DAY: We project a high in the 86-90 degree range across most of Alabama today with a partly to mostly sunny sky. For some places, it will be the warmest day so far this year. Clouds will increase tonight ahead of a surface front, and we will bring in a chance of showers tonight, tomorrow, and over the weekend.

Understand this isn’t a wash-out situation if you have something planned outdoors, but a few passing showers are likely. There could be a rumble of thunder as well, but severe storms are not expected. The sun will be out at times, and afternoons will stay warm with highs in the 80s. Like summer days, the showers over the next few days will tend to be random and scattered.

NEXT WEEK: Not much change in the weather is expected. A few isolated showers are possible during the week, but nothing really widespread or heavy. Most days will be dry a mix of sun and clouds along with highs mostly in the mid to upper 80s. A few spots could reach 90 degrees on a day or two as the summer-like pattern continues.

Still no sign of any high impact event (severe storms, flooding, etc) for Alabama for at least the next 7-10 days… but keep in mind the tornado season does run through the end of May. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1983: Severe thunderstorms produced 21 tornadoes across the northeastern states of Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York. One tornado even occurred in Ontario, Canada. Of the 21 tornadoes in the United States, nine were rated F3, and six were rated F2. The tornadoes caused five deaths.

ON THIS DATE IN 2010: May began with two days of historical rainfall over much of Middle Tennessee, with massive swath stretching along the I-40 corridor from Benton County to Davidson County. Some areas received nearly 20 inches of rain during this 2-day period, the highest of which was 19.41 inches reported by a CoCoRaHS observer in Camden, TN. Many Nashville landmarks received damage from floodwaters, including Gaylord Opryland Hotel and the Grand Ole Opry. Other popular Nashville landmarks affected by the floods include LP Field, Bridgestone Arena, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Schermerhorn Symphony Center, which received damage to the basement and its contents, including two Steinway grand pianos and the console of the Martin Foundation Concert Organ.

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