2 min read

DRY AFTERNOON: The sky is partly to mostly sunny across Alabama this afternoon with temperatures in the 75-82 degree range. Tonight will be clear and cool with lows generally in the 50s, but some of the colder spots could reach the upper 40s.

The weekend will be dry and pleasant; the sky will be partly to mostly sunny tomorrow and Sunday with highs in the 77-83 degree range.

NEXT WEEK: The week looks generally wet and unsettled. We will have periods of rain and possibly a thunderstorm on a daily basis, with the likely exception of Wednesday. Rain amounts through the week could exceed four inches over South Alabama, with over two inches possible for the northern counties of the state. For now we don’t see any major signal of severe thunderstorm potential, and highs will be mostly in the low 80s. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1905: On Wednesday, May 10th, 1905, the Oklahoma Territory was struck by one of the worst natural disasters in early American history. Tornadoes pounded the southwest part of the Territory, one of which flattened the town of Snyder. The “official” death toll is listed today as 97, but the actual number of victims may never be known.

ON THIS DATE IN 2010: On this day, Oklahoma experienced its largest tornado outbreak since May 3, 1999. Fifty-five twisters tore through the state, including two rated EF4. The EF4 storms took three lives and injured 81 people. Ironically, both EF4 tornadoes struck Norman, Oklahoma, home of the Storm Prediction Center and the National Severe Storms Laboratory.

Look for my next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. Monday… enjoy the weekend!
