Quiet Weather Pattern For Alabama Through Next Week

| May 26, 2023 @ 5:30 am

ONLY ISOLATED SHOWERS THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY: Alabama’s weather will stay quiet today and over the holiday weekend with temperatures below average. We will mention a risk of isolated showers on daily basis through Sunday, but the chance of any one spot seeing rain is in the 10-20 percent range. The high today will be in the low 80s, but a surface low to the east near the coast of the Carolinas will help to pull down cooler air into the region over the weekend. We project highs in the mid to upper 70s for the northern half of the state tomorrow and Sunday, almost ten degrees below average.

Memorial Day looks dry with a good supply of sunshine along with a high near or just over 80 degrees.

REST OF NEXT WEEK: The weather stays calm with no major precipitation events for the Deep South. Showers will remain few and far between through the week, and temperatures will trend warmer. Highs will be close to 90 by the end of the week… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: A frontal boundary and trough of low pressure are producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms off the coast of the
southeastern United States. A non-tropical area of low pressure is expected to form along the frontal boundary by tonight. The system appears unlikely to become a subtropical or tropical cyclone since it is forecast to remain frontal while moving generally northward and inland over the Carolinas late tomorrow or Sunday.

Regardless of subtropical development, the system is likely to produce gusty winds, dangerous surf, and rip current conditions along portions of the southeastern United States through the weekend. Heavy rainfall is expected in portions of the Carolinas and Virginia during the next few days. Hazardous marine conditions are also expected over the coastal and offshore waters where gale and storm warnings are in effect.

The Atlantic hurricane season begins next Thursday, June 1, and runs through the end of November.

ON THIS DATE IN 1917: A major tornadic thunderstorm took a 293-mile track across parts of central Illinois and Indiana. Once believed to be a single tornado, the later study indicated it was likely at least eight separate tornadoes. Overall, 101 people in Illinois were killed during the tornado outbreak, with 638 injured.

ON THIS DATE IN 2003: A BMI Airbus bound for Cyprus from Manchester, England encountered a violent thunderstorm over Germany. The plane bounced and twisted violently as it ran into severe turbulence with huge hailstones pounding the exterior. A football-sized hole was punched in the aircraft’s surface. None of the 213 passengers or eight crew members was seriously hurt.

We are on a holiday schedule, through Monday, so just one video update today, but I will post fresh forecast notes here on the blog by 3:00 this afternoon. Enjoy the day!
