Another Record High Possible; Some Strong Storms This Weekend

We’re well on our way to tying another record high temperature today in Montgomery. The current record is 83 degrees from 1996, and as of 11AM the temperature at Dannelly Field is 80°. A few isolated showers are possible this afternoon, but otherwise we should see a decent bit of sun with a partly cloudy sky. Tonight will be mild…

Another Record High Temperature Falls

The temperature rose to 82 degrees in Montgomery at 12:00PM, breaking the old record of 81° set in 2011. We could also set new record highs on Thursday and Friday.

A Very Warm Week Ahead

After a cool start for most this morning, temperatures recovered nicely for the afternoon with a few breaks of sunshine here and there. Light showers remained well to our north this afternoon, and its unlikely we see rain overnight. Lows will be mild and more uniform tonight, falling to near 60 degrees. Patchy fog is also likely to develop overnight,…

Some Showers and Cooler Temps Tonight

It was a cool morning for some thanks to a cold front that pushed through last night. That front lifted back north as a warm front this morning, and its now pushing south again as a cold front. Cooler temperatures and some scattered showers will accompany that front as it pushes back into our area overnight. Some spots north of…

Some Rain Over The Weekend

Temperatures surged into the 70s this morning thanks to a decent bit of sunshine early on. The clouds are starting to roll back in, and by this afternoon we will have an increased chance for rain as a cold front starts to push into our area. Rainfall totals will be light, however. The front should push through much of our…

The Cloudy and Warm Pattern Continues

More clouds than sun again for the remainder of our Thursday. Although a few isolated showers are possible, the overall chance for rain is about 20% at best and measurable rain is not expected. We’re in store for another warm afternoon, with high temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 70s. A few more isolated showers are possible overnight…

Cloudy and Warm Days Ahead

Although a spotty shower can’t be totally ruled out, the overall chance for rain is about 10%. Lows tonight should be a little more uniform thanks to…

Severe Weather Threat Over; More Rain and Storms This Evening

The severe weather threat is now over for central and south Alabama, but some rain currently continues across the southeast. There’s also an additional line of rain with some embedded thunder and lightning tracking into west Alabama ahead of the main cold front. That line of storms will trek through our viewing area this evening as the cold front pushes…

Strong To Severe Storms Tonight And Sunday

The showers and storms are benign so far this afternoon, but there is a threat for a few strong to severe storms, and also a brief tornado or two overnight. It’s a good idea to have a way to receive weather alerts tonight, and a great one is our weather app. If you don’t already have it, you can find…
