Cool Afternoon For Mid May

Cool Afternoon For Mid May

| May 19, 2020 @ 3:01 pm

COOL MAY DAY: Temperatures are only in the mid-60s across parts of North Alabama this afternoon, almost 20 degrees below average for the middle of May. An upper low over Tennessee has pushed clouds into the northern half of the state keeping temperatures down. But, to the south, there is a decent amount of sunshine over the southern half of the state, where mid-80s are being reported. The radar is very quiet, showing basically nothing over all of Alabama at mid-afternoon. We will keep the chance of scattered showers in the forecast for North Alabama this evening, but most places will be dry.
