Refreshing June Day For Alabama

| June 11, 2019 @ 3:21 pm

COMFORTABLE AFTERNOON: Temperatures are 5-10 degrees below average across Alabama this afternoon with readings mostly in the upper 70s and low 80s; lower dew points are making the day feel almost like early fall. There are basically no showers on radar statewide at mid-afternoon; we will hang on to the chance of a few isolated showers over East and Southeast Alabama this evening. Tonight will be mostly fair with a low in the 60s.

REST OF THE WEEK: A cold front will bring the chance of a few widely scattered showers tomorrow afternoon, but with limited moisture many communities will stay dry. Expect a mix of sun and clouds with a high in the mid 80s. Then, another surge of cooler, drier air arrives tomorrow night, and Thursday and Friday will be delightful with sunny pleasant days, lower humidity, and cooler nights. We expect lows in the 50s Friday morning, and some of the colder pockets across North/Central Alabama might make a run for the upper 40s. FYI… the lowest June temperature on record at Birmingham is 42, measured on June 1, 1966.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Saturday will be mostly dry, although a few isolated showers are possible near the Gulf Coast…. temperatures will rise into the upper 80s with an increase in humidity. Then, on Sunday, we will mention a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms as moisture levels continue to rise. Sunday’s high will be in the 84-88 degree range.

NEXT WEEK: We will maintain the chance of scattered showers and storms at least for the first half of the week, with a mix of sun and clouds reach day. Highs will be in the 80s… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

The 6-10 day precipitation outlook from CPC suggests above average rain for Alabama June 17-21. No sign of any extended dry spell like we experienced on late May and early June.

TROPICS: Tropical storm formation is not expected in the Atlantic basin over the next seven days.

ON THIS DATE IN 1990: One of the most expensive hailstorms in U.S. history occurred as $625 million of damage was caused along the Colorado Front Range from Colorado Springs to Estes Park. Golf to baseball sized hail fell along with heavy rain. 60 people were injured in the storm.
