The Midday Look At Central Alabama’s Weather On this Cool & Cloudy Tuesday

| September 12, 2017 @ 12:50 pm

Radar at 12:08 PM shows a few sprinkles to very light rain falling over parts of Central Alabama, some of which may not even be reaching the ground. All of the area at this point is still under cloud cover from the remnants of Irma, but the good news is all of her winds and heavier rains have left. Moderate to heavy rain from Irma is falling over parts of the lower Mississippi Valley, the Tennessee Valley north of Alabama, and the southern Mid-Atlantic states.

Temperatures are still well below normal today, currently in the lower to mid-60s throughout the area. Eufaula is the warm spot at this time, at 66 degrees. For most of the area, we are already pretty close to what our highs will be for the day, but some sun could break out to our south and make it into the lower to mid-70s. The rest of the area will range throughout the 60s. We may have a few scattered showers move across the area this afternoon and throughout the evening, with the higher chances to the north and west. Overnight lows will be in the mid to upper 50s throughout the area.

We’ll have more clouds than sun, but the sun will peek through the clouds at times throughout the day on Wednesday. Scattered showers will be possible for mainly the northern half of Central Alabama. Afternoon highs will be well below normal once again, with a wide range from the upper 60s to the lower 80s throughout the area from north to south. Amounts will be less than 0.10 inches for those who receive rain, while the rest of the area remains dry. The odds of any one location getting rain will be less than 1-in-3.

The rest of the work week looks fantastic, and temperatures will be warming back up to near normal levels. Skies will be mostly sunny with highs in the lower to mid-80s for most on Thursday, and warming into the mid to upper 80s for Friday. There will be a very slight risk of an isolated shower or two on both days, but the risk is so small that it is almost not worth mentioning at this point.

1988 – An afternoon tornado spawned a tornado which skipped across northern sections of Indianapolis IN damaging roofs and automobiles. It was the first tornado in central Indiana in September in nearly forty years of records. Hurricane Gilbert plowed across the island of Jamaica, and by the end of the day was headed for the Cayman Islands, packing winds of 125 mph.
