Showers & Sunshine Out There At Midday

| March 15, 2019 @ 11:40 am

At 11:15 am, we continue to have some scattered showers across the southern half of the area while the northern half is dry. The shower activity is light to moderate but shouldn’t last too long in any one spot as they are moving to the northeast at just short of 50 MPH. No lightning with these as well, but I wouldn’t be surprised if one or two of these have some lightning involved this afternoon before they move out of the state later today.

Clouds are starting to clear out of the northwestern parts of the area, while there still remains a good bit over the southern 2/3rds of the area. While most of these clouds will push eastward throughout the day, we may have more move in later tonight just for a little while. Temperatures are currently in the lower 50s to the mid-60s across the area and should top out in the upper 50s to the lower 70s from northwest to southeast for our daytime highs.

For tonight, we’ll have partly to mostly cloudy skies across the area and there still may be a few scattered showers across the extreme southern locations in Central Alabama, but chances for any showers down there will be really small. Overnight lows fall down into the mid-30s to the upper 40s across the area.

The forecast becomes rather easy for a good while as we are expected to see plenty of sunshine and no rain, at least through next Friday. Saturday will feature nearly maximum sunshine with just a few clouds floating overhead with highs reaching the upper 50s to the lower 60s across the area. Saturday night will remain mostly clear with lows dipping down into the lower 30s to the lower 40s.
