Warmer Days Ahead; Humidity Levels Slowly Rising

| May 30, 2023 @ 5:33 am

WARMING TREND AHEAD: Temperatures remain very pleasant across Alabama this morning… most North Alabama communities are in the 50s with a clear sky. Expect a partly to mostly sunny sky today with a high in the mid 80s; the average high for Birmingham on May 30 is 85. Moisture levels will be a tad higher today, and a few small, isolated showers could show up this afternoon, but the chance of any one spot seeing one of those is only 5-10 percent.

REST OF THE WEEK: We expect partly sunny, warm days with higher humidity levels with highs in the 80s. We will need to mention “widely scattered, mostly afternoon and evening showers or storms” on a daily basis, but odds of any community seeing rain daily will be in the 20-30 percent range. Very typical weather for late May and early June in Alabama.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Alabama’s weather won’t change much, but heat levels will be higher with some spots touching 90 degrees Saturday and Sunday. Partly sunny days, fair nights, and a few spotty afternoon showers or storms possible. Probability of any one specific location seeing rain both days will be around 20 percent.

NEXT WEEK: Global models suggest a cold front could bring a higher chance of rain toward the middle of the week, with some potential for a drier airmass by Thursday or Friday (June 8-9)… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

TROPICS: The Atlantic basin remains very quiet; the first day of the hurricane season is Thursday.

ON THIS DATE IN 1927: The Kentucky River peaks during a massive flood that killed 89 people and left thousands homeless. Torrential rains caused this unprecedented flood.

ON THIS DATE IN 1988: Memorial Day heralded heavy snow in some of the mountains and higher passes of Wyoming, closing roads in Yellowstone Park. McDonald Pass, Montana was blanketed with eight inches of snow, while the temperature at Miles City, Montana soared to 94 degrees.

Look for the next video briefing here by 3:00 this afternoon… enjoy the day!
