Highs Around 90s Through Saturday

Summer-like warmth is sticking around through Saturday. High pressure to our south is carving us out sunny and dry conditions. Temps respond with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s. A frontal boundary moves a run at us Saturday night into Sunday. We pick up a round of showers as the system moves through the area. Temps do come…

A cold front has moved south of us but it will eventually lift back northward as a warm front. In the mean time, northwesterly winds will usher in cooler and drier air into the state. Temps will drop into the mid 50s overnight. Abundant sunshine is back in play Thursday and this will help send temps into the upper 80s…

Rain/Storms Tonight

A cold front will make a southward push across the state tonight. Rain and storms move ahead and along the boundary. Strong to severe storms are likely across north Alabama but we expect the storms to weaken quite a bit as they pass through our area. Our northern most counties: Marengo, Hale, Perry, Coosa, Chilton, and Tallapoosa could see a…

Scattered Showers Through Midweek

The first couple of days this week will support scattered showers and possibly a few t-storms at times. Rainfall potential looks to stay under a half inch through early Wednesday. Temps will hover in the lower 80s for highs. High pressure builds over the deep south Thursday and sticks around for several days. Abundant sunshine will lead to temps climbing…

More Rain Ahead For Part Of The Weekend

A frontal boundary pushing southward through the state bringing rain and storms along with it. Some of the storm could be strong west of the I-65 corridor. The main threats would be damaging winds and quarter size hail. The front eventually makes its way to the coast early Saturday. The better chance for any rain activity will be southward along…

Rain/Storms Ahead For Friday

Spring officially begins at 10:50 PM but of course spring-like warmth has been here for days now. Friday won’t be any different as temps climb into the lower 80s for highs. What will be different is the return of rain and storms Friday afternoon and evening. A frontal boundary approaches and eventually moves through the area. Rain and storms develop…

Chance for rain increasing late week

No need to wait on the official arrival of spring because it’s been feeling like it all week. Temps continue to manage low to mid 80s and we see this trend sticking around through Friday. Occasional showers are possible but most spots remain dry for now. This will change as a frontal boundary moves into the deep south Friday. Rain…

More Spring Warmth Ahead

A frontal boundary remains draped across the state tonight. Showers will continue to develop along and out ahead of the boundary. Eventually it will lift northward and place us in an even warmer air mass. Temperatures will climb into the mid to upper 80s both Wednesday and Thursday. Most spots look to stay dry over the same period. A stronger…

Occasional Showers Through Midweek

It continues to look and feel a lot like spring and it just so happens spring officially begins Thursday. High and low temperatures remain well above the average for this time of the year. Morning temps start out in the lower 60s and then upper 70s to mid 80s are likely each afternoon. Occasional showers are possible along with a…

Occasional Showers Ahead

This spring-like weather pattern is holding on strong across our area. High pressure to our south is slowing the movement of frontal boundaries to our north. As a result, rain and storms pass just north of our area. It’s looking like the boundaries will eventually drift into and possibly south of us over the next few days. Occasional showers will…
