Noon Update: Warm, a Few Scattered Storms

FOR FRIDAY: Very warm and mostly dry for the final work day of week. We will see another day with more sunshine than clouds, and though rain is not expected, we cannot completely rule out the chance for a passing shower or two somewhere across the state. SATURDAY/SUNDAY: Overall a very nice weekend of weather for the final official weekend…

More Sun than Clouds, Warmer Weather

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: An upper ridge will begin to build into the Southeast today, and it will finally nudge Irma’s leftovers off to the northeast. The sun will return, and so will warmer temperatures as we are expecting lower 80s today, then mid to upper 80s Friday. Though we should all remain dry, we will mention the possibility of a lingering isolated…

Better Weather Days Ahead

TODAY THROUGH FRIDAY: More clouds than sun today with a few isolated showers remaining the forecast, especially for the northern portions for the state. It will be warmer with highs in the lower 80s.

Irma Exits, Improving Weather Ahead

Rain will end early today, and our winds will be dying down as well, but still remaining breezy in the 10-20 mph range. As the remnants of Irma pull to the north, drier air will wrap in behind the system and we should see some sunshine, but it will remain cool with highs in the lower 70s. ANOTHER X-CLASS SOLAR…

Dry Through Weekend, Watching Irma

OH SO NICE!: Amazing weather today all across Alabama as it sure looks and feels like fall out there. After the chilly start in the 50s, we will all warm into 80s this afternoon. Very few if any clouds and a light north breeze makes this “chamber of commerce weather.” If you like this weather, which most of us do,…

Feels Like Fall, Three Active Hurricanes

A TASTE OF FALL: Today through Sunday, we are forecasting sunny pleasant days and clear, cool nights. Highs in the lower to mid 80s are forecast, while lows will be mostly in the 50s. Again Friday morning, those cooler pockets across North/Central Alabama could see upper 40s. Phenomenal fall-like weather in the days ahead. FOOTBALL WEATHER: A perfect night for…

A Taste of Fall, Very Active Tropics

TASTE OF FALL: Clouds and lingering showers are possible in the morning, especially over our southern counties, but as the dry, continental air settles into Alabama, we will see a clearing sky and a refreshing north breeze today. Highs will range from the upper 70s to lower 80s. By tonight, under a clear sky, we are going to see our…

A Hint of Fall, Watching Hurricane Irma

FRONT APPROACHING: The first true cool front of the season is heading towards Alabama and will bring in a chance of showers, and possibly a thunderstorm late this afternoon and overnight. Good news, no severe weather is expected, and rain amounts generally less than and half an inch are likely. The showers will end during the morning hours Wednesday, followed…

Changes Behind a Midweek Front

The day will feature plenty of sunshine and afternoon highs in the upper 80s with a few low 90s possible. Usually we are dealing with hot and humid weather with afternoon storms, not the case this year, and once…
