Occasional Rain/Storms To Continue Through Tomorrow Night

| May 25, 2022 @ 3:21 pm

RADAR CHECK: Rain continues over the far eastern part of Alabama, near the Georgia border, where some spots have seen over 3 inches of rain today. Much of Central Alabama is dry, but a new batch of rain and storms is moving into West Alabama, and this activity will push across the state this evening. Heavier storms will be capable of producing strong gusty winds and hail. There is a low end risk of a brief, isolated tornado as well. Storm intensity should slowly drop after sunset.

Tomorrow will be another wet day with occasional rain and a few strong thunderstorms. SPC maintains a “marginal risk” (level 1/5) of severe thunderstorms for all of Alabama due to the potential of hail and strong, gusty winds. And, like this evening, a brief isolated tornado can’t be totally ruled out. Rain and storms will end from west to east tomorrow night.

Additional rain amounts of 2 inches are likely for most of Alabama as this beneficial rain event continues. Temperatures will hold in the 70s all day tomorrow due to clouds and rain.

A slot of dry air works into the state Friday, and the sky becomes partly sunny with a high in the 75-79 degree range. Showers Friday will be confined to areas near the Tennessee state line under a cold core upper low; most of the state will be dry.

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND: Look for mostly sunny warm days and clear pleasant nights over the three day holiday weekend. The high Saturday will be in the low 80s, followed by upper 80s Sunday. Monday’s high will be close to 90 degrees. Lows will be mostly in the 60s, but cooler spots will be in the pleasant 50s early Saturday and Sunday morning. This is about as nice as it gets in late May in Alabama.

REST OF NEXT WEEK: Dry weather will continue Tuesday and Wednesday… a few spotty showers could show up Thursday and Friday, but nothing too widespread. Highs will be close to 90 degrees… See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1955: An estimated F5 tornado moved north and NNW through the heart of Blackwell, Oklahoma. About 400 homes were destroyed, and many were leveled and swept away. About 500 other homes were damaged. The tornado dissipated just over the Kansas border, as the Udall, Kansas tornado was forming to the east. The Udall, Kansas tornado was estimated to be an F5 as well. Over half of the population of Udall was killed or injured as the tornado completely devastated a large portion of town. Seventy-five people were killed, and many of the 270 injuries were serious.

ON THIS DATE IN 2008: A rare, large and destructive EF5 tornado created a 43-mile long path across Butler and Black Hawk counties in Iowa. This tornado killed eight people, injured dozens and caused several millions of dollars in damage. The tornado was nearly three-quarters of a mile wide as it moved through the southern end of Parkersburg. A third of the town was affected by devastating damage with nearly 200 homes destroyed.
