Showers/Storms Return Tomorrow Night

| November 29, 2019 @ 5:48 am

DRY WEATHER CONTINUES TODAY: While the western half of the U.S. is impacted by a complex storm system, Alabama’s weather stays dry today. With a mix of sun and clouds. we project a high between 62 and 65 degrees this afternoon. The average high for November 29 at Birmingham is 60. Clouds will thicken tonight.

RAIN RETURNS: The day tomorrow should be mostly dry for the state, although a few showers are possible over the Tennessee Valley of far North Alabama by afternoon. The sky will be mostly cloudy, and the afternoon will be mild with a high around 70 degrees. An approaching cold front will bring a band of rain, along with a few thunderstorms, tomorrow night. SPC maintains a “marginal risk” (level 1/5) of severe storms for parts of West Alabama.

This is much like the system that passed through the state Tuesday night; dynamics are are impressive, but there is little to no surface based instability. Heavier storms tomorrow night could produce strong gusty winds, and there is a low chance of a brief, isolated tornado. But, the overall severe weather threat is low. Heavier storms for the northern half of the state will come from 7:00 p.m. tomorrow through 2:00 a.m. Sunday, and rain amounts should be under 1 inch for most communities.

The sky will become partly sunny Sunday with a high in the 60s as dry air returns quickly.

NEXT WEEK: Monday will be dry and colder; the high will be in the upper 40s… and by early Tuesday sub-freezing temperatures are likely. The rest of the week looks cool and dry, although a few showers could return by Friday (one week from today). For now, it doesn’t look like a big rain event… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

IRON BOWL: For the biggest game of the year in Alabama (2:30p CT kickoff tomorrow at Jordan-Hare Stadium), the sky will be partly to mostly cloudy with a kickoff temperature near 70 degrees. Rain arrives well after the completion of the game, generally after midnight in Lee County. South winds during the game will average 7-14 mph.

OTHER FOOTBALL FORECASTS: For high school playoff games tonight, the sky will be mostly cloudy with temperatures falling through the 50s. No risk of rain.

Tomorrow, UAB take on North Texas at Apogee Stadium in Denton, Texas (3:00p CT kickoff). Showers are possible during the morning, but by kickoff the sky should be mostly sunny as dry air moves in. Temperatures will be close to 70 at kickoff, falling to near 60 by the final whistle.

ON THIS DATE IN 2016: Over a dozen tornadoes touched down across Alabama; one was an EF-3 that moved through Jackson and DeKalb Counties, killing three in a mobile home in the Rosalie community of Jackson County. Six people were injured by the same tornado in Ider.
