Pleasant Days, Cool Nights; Warm Easter Weekend Ahead

| March 27, 2024 @ 5:38 am

CALM DAYS: The sky is mostly clear across Alabama early this morning with temperatures in the 40s and 50s, but clouds are hanging tough over the southeast corner of the state. Rain will remain east of our state today; expect a partly sunny sky with a high in the 60s for most communities this afternoon.

TOMORROW THROUGH THE WEEKEND: The weather stays dry with mostly sunny days and fair nights. Highs will be mostly in the 60s tomorrow, followed by a low near 40 degrees early Friday morning. We note some of the colder spots will likely visit the 30s with some potential for scattered light frost. Then, we warm into the 70-75 degree range Friday afternoon.

The weekend will be warm. The high Saturday will be in the upper 70s and low 80s, and temperatures will likely reach or exceed 80 degrees statewide on Easter Sunday.

NEXT WEEK: Monday will stay warm and dry with a high in the low to mid 80s. Showers and a few thunderstorms return to the state late Tuesday, Tuesday night, and into part of the day Wednesday… for now it doesn’t look like a severe storm setup. Dry weather is expected Thursday and Friday with highs back in the upper 60s and low 70s… See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1994: An EF-4 tornado killed 20 people in the Goshen United Methodist Church in Northeast Alabama (just north of Piedmont, in southern Cherokee County) during the Palm Sunday worship service. A total of 92 were injured. A warning was issued 12 minutes before the tornado destroyed the church building, but unfortunately they never heard the warning. One person was killed by the tornado on Lake Neely Henry, and there was another fatality along U.S. 278 southwest of Goshen. The tornado cut a 50 mile path from Ragland in St. Clair county to the Georgia line.

Later that day, an EF2 tornado moved through North Shelby County; it tornado extensively damaged businesses and mobile homes and caused minor damage to Pelham High School. It dissipated just west of Meadowbrook.

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