Central Alabama’s Most Detailed Seven Day Forecast

Thursday February 27, 2020
Forecaster: James Spann

DRY AIR SETTLES IN: Today will be a sunny day across Alabama with a high around 50 degrees this afternoon. The average high for Birmingham on February 27 is 62. The sky will be partly to mostly sunny tomorrow with a high in the mid 50s; a clipper will bring some risk of a few widely scattered showers to the northern part of the state by afternoon, but rain amounts should be very light and spotty. A few flurries are possible tomorrow night over the northeast corner of the state, but there won’t be any impact.

THE ALABAMA WEEKEND: Look for a good supply of sunshine Saturday and Sunday. After a low in the 32-35 degree range Saturday, the high will be in the mid to upper 50s. Then, on Sunday, we rise into the mid 60s.

NEXT WEEK: Monday and Tuesday will be mostly cloudy and mild with a few showers possible. We will see a high around 70 Monday, followed by low 70s Tuesday. Rain and storms become widespread Tuesday night into part of the day Wednesday… too early to know if we will have any severe weather risk, but something to watch in coming days. Drier air returns for the latter half of the week. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

RAIN UPDATE: Birmingham’s rain total for the month is up to 13.26″… this will be the third wettest February on record, behind February 1961 (17.67?) and February 1903 (15.86?).

ON THIS DATE IN 1999: A brief tornado, rated EF-2, occurred just northwest of Locust Fork in Blount County. The tornado crossed CR 13 moving in a northerly direction. Other wind damage was reported in over 8 counties as a strong line of storms rolled through the state. Most of the damage was due to straight line winds.
