Nice Today, Nearly Perfect Tomorrow and Tuesday

| March 19, 2017 @ 11:48 am

It has been a nice, cool morning across Central and North Alabama. Temperatures are climbing through the 50s at this hour, heading toward highs in the 60s for the most part. The southern part of the area will reach the lower 70s, in places like Demopolis, Selma, Montgomery and Troy.

Skies are clear across the state for now, but some high clouds are waiting to move across the area later this afternoon on the northwesterly flow aloft on the backside of the trough that is along the East Coast. There is a nice slug of moisture over Missouri and Arkansas. Regional radar are showing some light showers, but I could find no evidence that any of it is reaching the ground.

This disturbance will drag some clouds across Alabama later today, but it should do little to ruin the sunshine.

We will be in the middle 40s overnight under partly cloudy skies.

Tomorrow and Tuesday will be absolutely perfect as we welcome back spring. The equinox will arrive at 5:28 a.m. tomorrow morning and the weather will celebrate its arrival. With a good supply of sunshine, highs will warm into the middle and upper 70s tomorrow and upper 70s will be commonplace areawide on Tuesday.

A front will try to sink in here at midweek, bringing a chance of showers late Wednesday night and Thursday.

Still monitoring the threat of severe weather for the weekend. Lots of disagreement between the models about how the scenario will evolve, so lots to be worked out. Thing seem to be trending toward the severe weather threat late on Saturday. We will be watching.
