THE CENTRAL ALABAMA WEEKEND: We’ll start off with some clouds this morning and chilly temperatures, but it will turn out to be a bright, but breezy Saturday as skies will eventually become sunny. It will be a great day for outdoor activities, especially if you are having an outdoor wedding like my friends, the Lamberts. Afternoon highs will top out in the upper 50s in the northeast to the mid 60s in the southwest.
Sunday will be sunny throughout the daylight hours and much warmer, with highs reaching the mid to upper 70s across the area. However, clouds will begin to roll in around and after sunset and wind will become breezy through the late-night and overnight hours.
THE WORK WEEK AHEAD: Ridging starts to build over the area on Monday, but with a weak impulse moving across Central Alabama, we may see a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the lower 70s to right at 80 degrees.
Another impulse will move through on Tuesday that will once again bring a small chance of scattered showers and storms to the area. Highs will be in the upper 70s to the lower 80s.
Unsettled weather will continue on Wednesday, as we’ll keep a small chance of scattered showers and storms in the forecast. Highs will be in the upper 70s to the mid 80s.
A cold front will move across the area on Thursday, bringing with it rain and storms. We may see a few stronger storms with this system, and maybe just enough ingredients come together where we might have one or two storms become severe. It is just too early to see at this point, and we’ll have better data to pull from as we get closer to the event. Highs will be in the lower 70s to the lower 80s.
The atmosphere doesn’t dry out behind the cold front on Friday, and we’ll continue to have a chance of showers and a few storms to end the work week. Highs will be in the lower 70s to the lower 80s.
ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY — 1947: A tornado struck Woodward, OK during the late evening, killing 95 persons and causing six million dollars damage. The tornado, one to two miles in width, and traveling at a speed of 68 mph, killed a total of 167 persons along its 221-mile path from Texas into Kansas, injured 980 others, and caused nearly ten million dollars of damage. A man looking out his front door was swept by a tornado from his home near Higgins, TX and carried two hundred feet over trees. The bodies of two people, thought to be together at Glazier, TX, were found three miles apart.
