A Look At Central Alabama’s Weather At Midday

| February 14, 2018 @ 12:41 pm

CONDITIONS AT 12:40 PM

Even though we are dealing with a few showers in the northwest corner of Central Alabama at this time, I do not believe you can complain about the temperatures at this point. There is one shower showing up in the area that is approaching Hamilton as I type, but it is a very small shower and shouldn’t last very long as it moves to the east. Temperatures at this time were ranging from the upper 50s in the north to the mid-60s in the south. Birmingham was at 61 degrees, while the warm spot was Selma at 64 degrees.


FOR THE REST OF YOUR VALENTINE’S DAY

HRRR Simulated Radar valid from now until 4:00 AM Thursday.

We’ll continue to have cloudy skies with scattered to numerous showers at times mainly across the northern half of Central Alabama, with chances diminishing as you get south of a line from Tuscaloosa to Columbiana to Wedowee. There may be a few breaks in the clouds to allow some sun through, especially in the southern half of the area, but afternoon highs will make it up into the mid-60s to the lower 70s. Rain chances will prevail throughout the late night and overnight hours, mainly in the northern half of the area, with the southern half seeing very little to none. Overnight lows will be in the upper 50s to the lower 60s.


THURSDAY’S WEATHER

We’ll continue to stay in a warm and moist airmass across Central Alabama, leaving us with a small risk of a few scattered showers moving through the area throughout the day. Coverage will be less than today, with the odds of any one spot getting rain at their location about 1-in-5 (or 20%). Skies will continue to be mostly cloudy, but afternoon highs will be warmer yet, making it into the mid to upper 70s for most in the area. We should dry out for a little while on Thursday night and into the overnight hours, but skies will remain mostly cloudy. Overnight lows will be in the lower 60s.


ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY

1989 – While “Valentine’s Day” was a soggy one in the Ohio Valley and the Tennessee Valley, unseasonably warm weather prevailed in the southeastern U.S. Seventeen cities reported record high temperatures for the date as readings warmed into the 70s and 80s.
