Warm Weekend Ahead; A Few Showers Next Week : The Alabama Weather Blog

2 min read

THIS AFTERNOON: The weather is warm and dry across Alabama this afternoon with temperatures in the 80s. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 60s.

THE WEEKEND: Highs will remain in the 80s tomorrow and Sunday with partly sunny days and fair nights. Showers will be very hard to find; the chance of any one spot getting wet each day is less than 10 percent.

NEXT WEEK: A weak front will bring some risk of showers to North and West Alabama Monday night and Tuesday, but with an upper ridge in place rain amounts will be light and spotty. The front will stall and ultimately dissipate by mid-week; a few isolated showers are possible over the northern half of the state basically each day Wednesday through Friday, but again the rain won’t heavy or widespread. Most of South Alabama will be dry, and highs remain in the low to mid 80s through the week.

We still see no sign of a high impact weather event for Alabama for the next seven to ten days… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1978: An unusually strong occluded front swept out of the Gulf of Alaska and produced the first April thunderstorm of record at Fairbanks. Pea-size hail fell northeast of Fairbanks from thunderstorms whose tops were less than 8000 feet.

ON THIS DATE IN 2011: The multiple day “Superoutbreak” of tornadoes continued. A total of 55 tornadoes were confirmed on the 26th, although no fatalities occurred. Most of those tornadoes were short lived, but a few of them caused considerable damage. A long-tracked wedge tornado caused EF2 damage in rural portions of Texas and Louisiana. An EF3 tornado destroyed structures and caused severe damage at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, as well.

In Alabama, we were warning people of the potential of violent, long track tornadoes on the following day, April 27.

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