Rain Returns Tomorrow Night Into Friday Morning; More Rain Saturday

| November 23, 2022 @ 5:50 am

RADAR CHECK: We have a few showers across parts of East and Southeast Alabama early this morning; that will push into Georgia soon and most of the day today will be dry. With a partly sunny sky, we project a high in the 66-71 degree range for most communities this afternoon. The average high for Birmingham on November 23 is 63. The weather is quiet over much of the nation today, a great day for Thanksgiving Eve travel.

Clouds will increase tomorrow, and some rain could reach West Alabama late in the day. Rain is likely statewide tomorrow night into Friday… the main window for rain will come from about 6:00 p.m. tomorrow through 12 noon Friday. Some thunder is possible, but there is no risk of severe storms. Tomorrow’s high will be close to 70 degrees, followed by low to mid 60s Friday.

THE WEEKEND: Another round of rain is likely Saturday across Alabama as an upper low west of the state lifts out. There is little to no surface based instability available, so no risk of severe storms, and probably little thunder. The rain will end from west to east Saturday night. Rain amounts from tomorrow night through Saturday night will be in the 2-3 inch range over the northern 2/3 of Alabama, with 1-2 inches for the southeast counties.

The sky becomes partly sunny Sunday. Highs over the weekend will be in the 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Dry and pleasant weather continues Monday and Tuesday with highs in the 60s. Then, a fairly dynamic weather system will bring Tain and storms to the state Wednesday and Wednesday night… some instability will be available for this system, and strong to severe storms can’t be ruled out. Then, dry and cooler air returns Thursday and Friday with highs in the 50s. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.

IRON BOWL: For the biggest game of the year in the state of Alabama Saturday (Auburn at Alabama, 2:30p CT kickoff)… the sky will be cloudy with periods of rain likely. For now odds of a lightning delay look low; temperatures will be in the mid 60s at kickoff, falling to near 60 by the final whistle. Take the rain gear.

ON THIS DATE IN 1912: The Rouse Simmons was a three-masted schooner famous for sinking during a violent storm on Lake Michigan on this day. The ship was bound for Chicago with a cargo of Christmas trees when it foundered off the coast of Two Rivers, Wisconsin, killing all on board.

ON THIS DATE IN 2004: An EF-1 tornado moved through parts of Lamar and Marion counties producing considerable damage in a broad zone from near Detroit to Hamilton. More tornadoes would touch down the following morning, on November 24, 2004.
