Most Of Alabama Dry Through The Weekend

| May 12, 2021 @ 3:14 pm

DRIER AIR PUSHING INTO NORTH ALABAMA: The sky has cleared over the northern third of the state this afternoon, where the sky is mostly sunny. Clouds linger over the southern half of the state, but there is very little rain on radar. Scattered showers or storms are possible tonight over South Alabama.

TOMORROW THROUGH THE WEEKEND: Most of Alabama will be dry on these four days. Tomorrow will be partly sunny with a high in the low 70s, then we expect sunshine in full supply Friday and Saturday with a warming trend. Friday’s high will be in the mid 70s, and by Saturday afternoon temperatures will reach 80 degrees. Sunday will be another dry day for most of the state with a high in the low 80s… a few isolated showers could show up near the Gulf Coast.

NEXT WEEK: Moisture levels will rise, and the week will be warm and humid with highs in the mid 80s. A strong upper ridge will keep most of the state dry Monday and Tuesday with only isolated showers… scattered showers and thunderstorms will be a little more numerous over the latter half of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1959: An F3 tornado touched down just south of Bessemer and moved northward into Fairfield. The most intense damage occurred near the beginning where 3 houses were demolished. Twenty houses and numerous other buildings were also damaged. Many trees and power lines were blown down along the damage path.

ON THIS DATE IN 1997: A towering F1 tornado ripped its way through the middle of Miami, Biscayne Bay, and Miami Beach right after lunch Monday, smashing cars and windows, tossing trees skyward and scaring the dickens out of thousands of people.
