Warmer Days Ahead; Dry Through Monday

| March 28, 2024 @ 3:06 pm

DRY WEATHER CONTINUES: Alabama’s weather will stay dry through the Easter weekend with mostly sunny days and fair nights. Colder spots will drop into the 30s tonight with some potential for scattered frost. Expect a high in the 70s tomorrow and Saturday. On Sunday, most places will see a high at or just over 80 degrees… it will our warmest Easter in a few years.

NEXT WEEK: The weather stays warm and dry Monday with highs in the 80-85 degree range. Then, showers and thunderstorms return to the Deep South late Tuesday and Tuesday night. A few strong storms will be possible… in fact SPC has placed the northern third of the state in a severe weather risk. No doubt the air will be unstable, but the amount of dynamic forcing and the small scale details remain in question. Rain amounts will be under one inch for most places.

The sky becomes partly to mostly sunny Wednesday with highs back in the 60s… dry weather continues through Friday. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1920: The worst tornado disaster of record occurred in Chicago as a tornado killed 28 persons and caused three million dollars damage. This tornado was part of an outbreak which saw 38 tornadoes hit the Midwest and the Deep South. Over 380 people died during the Palm Sunday outbreak.

In Alabama that day, a long track tornado from near Deatsville to West Point, GA killed 17 people. The greatest destruction was in Tallapoosa County in the vicinity of Susanna, Agricola, Red Ridge. One person was killed in another tornado in Calhoun County near Jacksonville.

Look for the next video briefing here by 6:00 a.m. tomorrow…
