A Few Showers/Storms For East Alabama Today

| June 12, 2019 @ 5:50 am

DEEPER MOISTURE EAST OF I-65: We will mention a chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon, mainly for the eastern counties of Alabama, ahead of a cold front. SPC has East Alabama in a “marginal risk” (level 1/5) of severe storms east of I-65…

A few storms could produce strong winds and some hail during the afternoon and evening hours. West Alabama will be mostly dry today, and highs will be in the 82-85 degree range with a mix of sun and clouds.

TOMORROW/FRIDAY: These two days will bring some delightful weather to the state for early summer. Mostly sunny days, fair cool nights, and low humidity levels. Highs will be in the low 80s tomorrow, followed by mid 80s Friday. Temperatures drop into the 50s early Friday morning, and some of the normally cooler spots across North Alabama could touch the upper 40s briefly.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Saturday will be dry and warmer; the sky will be mostly sunny with a high in the upper 80s. Then we will bring back a chance of scattered, mostly afernoon and evening showers and thunderstorms on Sunday as moisture levels rise. Sunday’s high will be in the mid to upper 80s with a mix of sun and clouds.

NEXT WEEK: Not much change; fairly typical weather for June most of the week. Partly sunny days with some risk of scattered showers and storms… highs in the 87-90 degree range. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic basin, and tropical storm formation is not expected over the next 7 days.

ON THIS DATE IN 2005: The remnant circulation of Tropical Storm Arlene moved through North/Central Alabama… Arlene’s local effects were rather minor. Storm total rainfall generally was 1 to 3 inches east of Interstate 65, and 2 to 5 inches west of Interstate 65, with isolated higher amounts. Estimated maximum wind gusts were 30 to 40 mph, with a few isolated higher amounts. The heaviest rain and the strongest winds were generally experienced along and west of Interstate 65. Several trees and power lines were blown down across Central Alabama with a few power outages. Minor local flooding and river flooding occurred.
