Some Light Rain Tonight/Tomorrow; Dry Weekend Ahead

Some Light Rain Tonight/Tomorrow; Dry Weekend Ahead

| November 14, 2019 @ 3:14 pm

RADAR CHECK: We have patches of light rain across most of Alabama this afternoon as a wave moves into the western Gulf of Mexico. The evaporative cooling process has helped to generate a few patches of sleet mixed with the rain, but temperatures are in the 40s and there won’t be any impact. Periods of light rain are likely tonight, mostly over the southern two-thirds of the state; amounts should be under 1/4 inch.

No risk of severe storms, and most likely very little thunder. The high this afternoon will be in the upper 60s.

Beneficial Summer Rain For Alabama

Beneficial Summer Rain For Alabama

| August 26, 2019 @ 6:27 am

WET DAY: A deep layer of tropical moisture remains over Alabama today, and with an upper trough to the west we expect a wet late summer day with occasional rain and possibly a few thunderstorms. No severe storms, and we don’t expect any flooding issues today (we did have some yesterday around Muscle Shoals, where 5-7 inches of rain came down in only two hours). There is a good chance many communities will hold in the 70s all day because of clouds and rain; the average high at Birmingham on August 26 is 90.

Dry Tomorrow/Wednesday; Rain Returns Thursday

RADAR CHECK: A large mass of rain covers much of Central Alabama this afternoon; this is in response to a wave of low pressure moving along a stalled front over the southern part of the state. There is a big thermal contrast on either side of the front; temperatures are in the 50s across North Alabama, but to the south Mobile reports 81 degrees at 2:00p CDT. Rain will end from west to east this evening, and we drop into the 40s overnight.

FLOOD WATCH: A flood watch remains in effect for the northern half of Alabama as another big batch of rain and storms moves through this afternoon.

Temperatures are mostly in the 50s over North Alabama, with 60s to the south. But, parts of Northeast Alabama remain in the 40s as the cold air is taking longer to be scoured out.
