Weather Xtreme: Storms at Times This Weekend; A Quiet Work Week

| April 16, 2022 @ 6:55 am

TODAY’S WEATHER: We’ll have scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms move through the area throughout the morning hours, with the activity potentially stalling out over the southern half of the area. Another wave looks to move in from the west during the afternoon hours that will bring rain back to the northern half of the area. Once we get to the evening hours, we may see a lull in the activity for a few hours. All of the southern half of Central Alabama is in a Marginal Risk today, while portions of Sumter and Marengo counties are in a Slight Risk. Damaging winds and hail will be the main threats. Highs will be in the lower 70s to the lower 80s.

EASTER SUNDAY: Unfortunately, it looks like showers and thunderstorms will develop and move across Central Alabama throughout the day on Easter Sunday, with the potential of a few of those storms becoming strong to severe. Almost the same story on the Slight and Marginal Risk locations, mainly for Sunday afternoon and evening. It won’t be an all-day washout, but have a backup plan if you have outdoor activities planned, just in case a storm moves through your area. Highs will be in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

THE WORK WEEK AHEAD: Skies will clear out throughout the day on Monday as a quiet pattern settles in over Central Alabama. Highs will be in the upper 60s to the upper 70s.

Sunny skies can be expected on Tuesday, with highs in the mid 60s to the lower 70s.

Finally, we will get a Wednesday with no storms. It will be mostly sunny, with highs in the mid to upper 70s.

On Thursday, we’ll have a front try to push into the area from the north that will be limited on moisture. Skies will be partly to mostly sunny for Central Alabama, but a few showers may be possible for the Tennessee Valley. Highs will be in the upper 70s to the lower 80s.

On Friday, the front retreats back northward and will bring in slightly warmer temperatures. Skies look to be mainly sunny, with highs in the upper 70s to the mid 80s.
