Showers Late Tonight/Early Tomorrow

| March 17, 2017 @ 5:58 am

WARMING TREND CONTINUES: We are above freezing this morning, with most communities reporting temperatures in the 40s. We rise into the 60s later today with a mix of sun and clouds; a few widely scattered showers are possible near the Tennessee border, but most of the state will be dry.

FRIDAY NIGHT FRONT: An approaching surface front will bring showers into Alabama late tonight and tomorrow morning. For North/Central Alabama, the main window for rain comes from about 12:00 midnight tonight through 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. While there could be a few rumbles of thunder, there is no risk of severe storms, and rain amounts should be fairly light, mostly under 1/4″.

REST OF THE WEEKEND: After the morning showers, the sky becomes partly sunny tomorrow afternoon with a high between 67 and 70 degrees. Sunday promises to be a beautiful day with ample sunshine and a high in the mid 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Temperatures rise into the 70s Monday with a good supply of sunshine, but we will need to mention a chance of showers late Tuesday and Tuesday night with a surface front; again rain amounts should be light and spotty. Global models still hint at a more robust system that could impact Alabama toward the end of the week, but it remains to be seen if this will bring a chance of severe thunderstorms. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

STORM SPOTTER TRAINING: We will be on the road through early April offering free storm spotter classes. We need more trained spotters in Alabama; by attending you can make the severe weather warning process better. No need to register; just come with a curious mind. And, there is no age limits… kids that love weather will enjoy it. You will never look at a storm the same again. The next class will be Tuesday evening of next week in Lineville at 6:30.
