Dry Today; Showers Return Tomorrow

| December 2, 2022 @ 5:44 am

WARMER THIS AFTERNOON: We project a high in the mid 60s over North Alabama today, with low 70s for the southern counties of the state. The average high for Birmingham on December 2 is 60. Clouds will increase tonight ahead of a cold front.

We note a few showers on radar over North Alabama early this morning, but a decent part of the day will be dry.

THE WEEKEND: Tomorrow will be a cloudy day with occasional showers. Not raining all day, no severe storms, and probably little thunder. Showers will be fewer in number over the southern counties, and the high will be in the 60s. On Sunday the best chance of showers will shift down into South Alabama; the day will drier for the north/central part of the state with only isolated showers. The high Sunday will be in the 50s over North Alabama, with 60s to the south.

NEXT WEEK: The weather looks mild and rather unsettled for much of the week with some risk of showers on just about a daily basis. The more significant rain will come over the northern half of the state, with showers fewer in number over South Alabama thanks to a strong upper high over the Gulf of Mexico. No risk of severe storms through the week, and highs will exceed 70 in most places Tuesday through Friday. Temperatures will trend colder by the following weekend (December 10-11), but still no sign of any bitterly cold Arctic air for the next 7-10 days across the Deep South. See the daily Weather Briefing video for maps, graphics, and more details.
