A Few Isolated Showers Tomorrow/Thursday

| May 14, 2019 @ 3:22 pm

MARVELOUS MAY DAY: The sky is sunny, humidity is low, and temperatures are well below average across Alabama this afternoon. Most places are in the low to mid 70s, and the sky will stay fair tonight. We project a low for most places between 50 and 55 early tomorrow, with upper 40s for colder spots.

TOMORROW/THURSDAY: The weather turns warmer; look for a high in the low 80s tomorrow, and mid 80s Thursday. We expect a mix of sun and clouds both days, and we will mention some risk of isolated showers over the northern half of the state thanks to a weak disturbance coming down in the northwest flow aloft. Moisture and dynamic support is limited, and rain amounts will be very light and spotty.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: Look for a good supply of sunshine Friday and Saturday with afternoon highs between 87 and 90 degrees. Sunday will be partly sunny and warm with a high in the mid to upper 80s; a few showers could reach North Alabama late in the day and Sunday night with the approach of a surface front. But, again, rain amounts should be light and spotty.

TO THE WEST: A very active severe weather pattern is setting up for parts of the Central U.S. over the next 7-10 days. This is the first time SPC has highlighted an area for all days (Days 4-8) with a 15% or greater probability of severe. No severe weather issues for Alabama anytime soon, however.

NEXT WEEK: A few scattered showers are possible Monday, but the rest of the week looks dry with hot afternoons. A strong upper ridge will bring low 90s to the state on most days.

ON THIS DATE IN 1923: An early morning violent estimated F5 tornado cut a 45-mile path of destruction through Howard and Mitchell counties in Texas. 23 people lost their lives and 250 sustained injuries. The path width of the tornado reached 1.5 miles at one point, and entire farms were “wiped off the face of the earth.” The First Baptist Church in Colorado City, Texas became an emergency hospital for tornado victims.
