Wet Through Tomorrow; Dry Air Returns Wednesday

3 min read

RADAR CHECK: A large mass of rain covers the northern 2/3 of Alabama early this morning as a cold front pushes through the state. Rain will taper off by midday for most places, but a few lingering showers are possible this afternoon. Temperatures will hold in the 50s over North Alabama today, with 60s and 70s over the southern half of the state ahead of the front.

A strong upper air wave will bring a cold rain to the state late tonight and tomorrow. Temperatures will have a hard time getting out of the 40s tomorrow over the northern half of the state, and additional rain amounts of 1-2 inches are likely over the next 48 hours. No severe weather worries with no surface based instability.

REST OF THE WEEK: The sky becomes partly to mostly sunny Wednesday with a high around 60 degrees… Thursday will be sunny with a high in the mid to upper 60s. The weather will stay dry during the day Friday, then a weak upper disturbance could squeeze out a few sprinkles Friday night, but moisture will be very limited, and most places won’t see anything meaningful.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: We will maintain an outside risk of a few sprinkles Saturday morning, but the weekend looks generally dry. We will see a mix of sun and clouds Saturday with a high around 60… Sunday will be sunny with low 60s likely.

NEXT WEEK: The weather looks pretty quiet through the week with mostly dry conditions and highs rising into the 70s by Wednesday. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

Are we done with cold weather? No. We always have cold snaps in Alabama in March and April. I would not plant anything harmed by a freeze…

ON THIS DATE IN 2007: An EF-4 tornado tore through Enterprise, eight students were killed at Enterprise High School when a concrete wall collapsed on top of them as they huddled in a hallway in a crouched position. The students were Michael Bowen, Peter Dunn, A.J. Jackson, Ryan Mohler, Katie Strunk, Michael Tompkins, Jamie Ann Vidensek, and Michelle Wilson. A ninth fatality occurred in Downtown Enterprise. 83-year-old retired nurses’ aid Edna Hays Strickland was killed. She was standing behind a living room window of her home as the glass shattered.
