Welcome to the Easter Weekend! Could we be teasing a record high today? That big upper level heat dome above us is building. That means almost summer-like heat with few if any showers. Speaking of that…don’t look now but we are getting dry again. I have the latest Drought Monitor. Plus your weekend Beach Forecast. Here’s your 2 minute Easter Weekend weather briefing
Could we be teasing a record high in Montgomery today? The forecast high is 87. The record high is 89 from 1972. That Upper Level high pressure bubble is building right over us today. That helps promote the warmer temperatures, while suppressing showers for the Easter holiday weekend.
Easter looks like a very warm day with highs in the mid 80’s Rain chances are almost zero, but not quite.
Beach Forecast for the weekend, tweaked and updated.
Don’t look now, but the new Drought Monitor map shows Alabama getting abnormally dry again, across 81% of the state.
