Alabama 811 | Know What's Below.

Cooler Tomorrow With A Few Showers Around

| April 10, 2024 @ 2:53 pm

RADAR CHECK: A large mass of rain covers Alabama this afternoon, a few strong to severe storms are moving through the southeast corner of state and the Florida Panhandle. The risk of severe storms will end soon for far Southeast Alabama, and rain tapers off this evening elsewhere.

WAKE LOW: We do note strong gradient winds (not related to thunderstorms) on the back edge of the big rain area due to a wake low; winds could gust to 30/40 mph in spots over the next few hours as the rain ends.

A few scattered showers are possible tomorrow over the northern 2/3 of Alabama with a mostly cloudy sky… the day will be breezy and cooler with a high in the low to mid 60s. Best chance of seeing sun will be near the Gulf Coast.

FRIDAY AND THE WEEKEND: The weather will be dry with sunny days and fair nights. The high Friday will be in the low 70s, followed by 80 degree warmth Saturday and Sunday. Coolest morning will come early Saturday with lows down in the 40s.

NEXT WEEK: An upper ridge will set the stage for the warmest week so far this year with daily highs in the 80-85 degree range. The ridge will also keep the big rain producers west and north of the Deep South… the week looks dry. See the video briefing for maps, graphics, and more details.

ON THIS DATE IN 1979: This day was known as “Terrible Tuesday” to the residents of Wichita Falls, Texas as a tornado rated F4 on the Fujita scale ripped through the city. A massive F4 tornado smashed into Wichita Falls killing 43 persons and causing 300 million dollars in damage. Another tornado struck Vernon, Texas killing eleven persons.

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