Some Rain At Times Tomorrow

| February 17, 2017 @ 9:40 am

SMALL QUAKE LAST NIGHT: The USGS reports a M2.6 earthquake last night at 11:26p CT west of Oak Grove and east of Windham Springs, where Tuscaloosa, Jefferson, and Walker Counties come together.

I would imagine most slept right through it.

STILL DRY TODAY: Temperatures are down in the 30s across most of North/Central Alabama early this morning, with some upper 20s for colder spots. The sky will be mostly sunny today with a high in the mid to upper 60s this afternoon. Then, clouds move in tonight ahead of a short wave aloft over Texas.

TOMORROW: We will forecast a few periods of rain from roughly 3:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. No chance of severe weather, and probably not much thunder. Rain amounts will be generally less than 1/2 inch. Otherwise, the day will be mostly cloudy with a high in the low 60s.

SUNDAY/MONDAY: These two days will be dry and very mild. A good supply of sunshine; low 70s Sunday followed by mid 70s Monday.

MID-WEEK: No doubt we will have some chance of rain toward the middle part of next week, but timing remains uncertain. The 06Z GFS run brings in a band of rain into the state Tuesday, but other runs suggested the rain could hold off until Wednesday. A surface low will move through the northern Gulf of Mexico, meaning no severe storms are expected, and the heaviest rain should be near the Gulf Coast. Then, drier air returns toward the end of the week.

Still no sign of any extremely cold air for the Deep South through early March…
