A Fantastic & Very Refreshing Midday; Much Of The Same On Friday

| June 13, 2019 @ 12:52 pm

What a wonderful day out there across Central Alabama as we are approaching the 1 o’clock hour. Plenty of sunshine with a few fair-weather clouds floating overhead mainly in the northeastern parts of the area and over the extreme southwestern parts. The rest of the area have clear skies. Temperatures are in the mid-70s to the mid-80s from north to south across the area. Birmingham was at 79 degrees.

Other than a few smaller fair-weather clouds floating overhead, skies will remain sunny and clear for the remainder of the afternoon and into the early evening hours. With the much drier air in place, those afternoon highs in the upper 70s to the mid-80s will feel much more like early to mid-spring instead of nearly the beginning of summer. We’ll have clear skies and cool conditions across the area tonight with lows in the lower 50s to right around 60 degrees.

In case you are wondering about the summer solstice, it takes place at 10:54 am on June 21st. On that day, we’ll experience 14 hours, 22.4 seconds of sunlight. Sunrise will take place at 5:37 am CT and sunset will be at 8:00 pm CT. We have already crossed over into “meteorological summer,” but the first day of astronomical summer is June 21st.

Friday’s weather will be another comfortable mid-June day as we’ll continue to have plenty of sunshine and lower humidity levels. Highs will be just a tad warmer, reaching the lower to mid-80s across the area. We’ll have a few clouds start to move in across the area during the late night and overnight hours but no rain is expected. Lows will remain a little warmer with the clouds only falling to the upper 50s to the mid-60s.
