TODAY: We’ll have high pressure centers off to our north and back to our west today that will help allow skies to be clear and temperatures to be warmer than what we have seen over the past week. Today’s highs will be in the upper 40s to the upper 50s.
SUNDAY: Sunday will be another sunny day during the daylight hours, but it will be quite breezy at times as winds could gust as high as 20 mph out of the south. A disturbance will move in late that will bring an increase of clouds during the evening with the potential for showers after midnight. Highs will be in the upper 50s to the mid-60s.
NEXT WEEK: That disturbance will keep a chance of showers in the forecast during the morning hours on Monday, but all of the shower activity will be out of here by the early afternoon hours. Highs will be in the lower 50s to the mid-60s. Tuesday will be a bright and sunny day with highs in the upper 50s to the mid-60s. Much of the same for Wednesday, but it will be a little warmer. Highs in the lower 60s to the lower 70s.
A small disturbance will work its way through Central Alabama during the pre-dawn hours on Thursday morning, but there will not be that much moisture involved with it. We’ll go with a very small chance of showers before the morning rush. Skies will be partly to mostly cloudy with highs in the upper 50s to the lower 70s. Friday will be partly to mostly cloudy, but at this point, showers do not look to be possible. Highs will be in the mid-50s to the mid-60s.
TEMPERATURE OUTLOOKS: The CPC Outlook for February 25th through March 1st shows temperatures will most likely be above normal.
The GFS has us staying well above freezing throughout the end of February and into the first seven days of March.
SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK: FEB 21-26
Alabama is no stranger to severe weather, including tornadoes. They can happen any month of the year and any time, day or night. However, our primary severe weather season is considered to be from November to May. Last year, 73 tornadoes touched down across Alabama. Unfortunately, four lives were lost, and over a dozen were injured. Advanced planning and increased awareness will help residents of Alabama survive these deadly storms. Throughout the week, we’ll have special posts and infographics on the blog about severe weather awareness and safety.
At the end of the week, the state of Alabama will hold a sales tax holiday for severe weather preparedness items. Don’t miss this great opportunity to purchase any items you may be missing from your emergency kit. For more information, including tax-exempt items and participating counties and municipalities, please visit https://revenue.alabama.gov/sales-use/sales-tax-holidays.
