Midday Nowcast: Incredible Memorial Day Weather

| May 29, 2023 @ 9:51 am

Incredible weather for this final Monday of May with a mainly sunny sky and comfortable conditions…low humidity and highs in the upper 70s and lower 80s. It doesn’t get better than this time of year…recent Memorial Days have been wet and stormy, or very hot and humid with summer making its presence known early…not this case this year.

REST OF THE WEEK: Mostly sunny weather continues tomorrow and Wednesday with highs in the low to mid 80s; any showers will remain few and far between. Moisture levels rise on Thursday meaning it becomes more humid, and that will allow for a few more scattered showers and storms during the afternoon and evening hours. The chance of any one spot seeing rain Thursday is 30-40%. By Friday, showers thin out again as drier air works into the state. Highs will be in the mid 80s Thursday and Friday.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: The weather stays quiet; we expect mostly sunny days, fair nights, and only a slight risk of any one community seeing a shower. Highs will be in the upper 80s, near average values for early June in Alabama. The quiet weather pattern will persist into next week with no sign of any major, high impact weather event for the state through much of the week, although there will be a few days when scattered afternoon and evening showers or storms could form. Highs will be in the upper 80s and lower 90s.

IN THE TROPICS: All is quiet in the Atlantic basin and no tropical cyclone development is expected through the upcoming weekend. Hurricane season officially starts Thursday.
