Drier Air Arrives Tomorrow; Sun In Full Force Sunday

| March 22, 2024 @ 3:24 pm

RADAR CHECK: Large areas of mostly light rain continue over the northern half of Alabama this afternoon. South Alabama is mostly dry; in fact the sun is out across the southwest counties of the state, where temperatures have reached the low 70s. Occasional rain will continue tonight, mostly across North/Central Alabama.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Any lingering showers will end tomorrow morning, and some clearing is possible by afternoon as dry air returns to the state. Temperatures will remain below average with highs in the mid 60s. Then, on Sunday, the sky will be sunny with a high not too far from 70 degrees. We need to mention there will be some risk of scattered frost early Sunday morning with temperatures dropping into the mid to upper 30s over the northern 2/3 of Alabama.

NEXT WEEK: The weather stays dry Monday, but showers and storms return to the state Tuesday ahead of a surface front. Instability will be very limited, and the main dynamic support will pass well to the north, and we are not expecting severe thunderstorms. Rain amounts of 1/2 to 1 inch are likely Tuesday, then drier air returns Wednesday with a partly sunny sky. The latest global model data suggests Thursday and Friday will be dry as well. Highs will be in the 65-72 degree range through the week… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1893: The first tornado was recorded in Oklahoma City on this date. It destroyed 14 buildings and injured four people as it passed through the center of town. There was minor damage to the Weather Bureau office, which was located at Grand and Robinson in south Oklahoma City.

ON THIS DATE IN 2022: Nine tornadoes touched down across Alabama, including an EF-2 in Choctaw County that was down for over four miles.

Look for my next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. Monday… enjoy the weekend!
