Much Cooler, Light Rain At Times

Much Cooler, Light Rain At Times

| April 19, 2019 @ 5:47 am

COOLER, SOME LIGHT RAIN: A deep, cold core upper low will move through Alabama today. Heavier thunderstorms over Southeast Alabama are moving out of the state, but we will still forecast periods of light rain today. We might even hear of some small hail with light rain showers this afternoon due to the cold air aloft associated with the upper low. Temperatures won’t get out of the 50s today… next time we have a day this cool will probably come in October.
