Clouds to the North, Sun to the South

| May 29, 2021 @ 11:23 am

It was a cool and cloudy start to the day with widespread 50s. At the midday hours, clouds linger across North Alabama, keeping temperatures in the 50s and 60s, while the sun is out for much of Central and South Alabama, allowing temperatures to head into the low and mid-70s.

These temperatures are a good ten degrees below average for this time of year. Plus, dew points are in the 40s and 50s, making it feel truly amazing for late May in Alabama. For tonight, the sky will be clear and it will be downright chilly as lows fall into 40s and 50s areawide.

THE REST OF MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: For tomorrow and Monday, expect sunshine in full supply with continued pleasant temperatures with highs close to 80° tomorrow with low to upper 80s Monday and humidity levels will remain low.

HELLO JUNE: As we start the new month, the weather pattern looks pretty routine for this time of year as moisture levels start to rise. Highs will be in the mid and upper 80s each day, with a mix of sun and clouds. Each day will also have scattered afternoon showers and storms popping up across the Alabama landscape. By Thursday and Friday, rain chances look to increase with a trough developing to the west of the state so rain and storms will become more widespread.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet across the Atlantic Basin and tropical cyclone development is not expected the next five days. Hurricane season “officially” begins on Tuesday.

SEC BASEBALL TOURNAMENT: Expect lots of sunshine today and tomorrow with temperatures in the 70s along with lower humidity levels.

BEACH FORECAST CENTER: Great weather along the Gulf Coast this weekend. Highs in the 80s, the rip current threat is low, and water temperatures are very near 80° up and down the coast from Dauphin Island to Panama City.
