The stage is set for an absolutely perfect Mother’s Day. After a clear, cool start, sunshine will dominate the day, with low humidity…a very nice, comfortable day. High in the mid 80’s.
THE WEEK AHEAD: Looks like clear sailing, with lots of sunshine and a warming trend this week. Highs will warm to near or above 90. Unfortunately, though, the chances for any raindrops are relatively small. I have about a 20% chance in Thursday, otherwise we are mostly dry, so get out the garden hose.
RAIN PROSPECTS FOR THE NEXT 7 DAYS: With a Moderate Drought already covering east and SE Alabama, the rain prospects for the next week are awful. Little or none for most.
WHO GOT RAINFALL?: Rainfall yesterday and overnight was most generous across the southern strip of counties, where some places got 2-3+” of rain. In central Alabama, the rain was more spotty and lighter. Doppler radar estimates that rainfall totaled 1-2” in some spots along and south of the I-85 corridor, but .5 to 1” was more common. North of I-85, come towns got no rain at all. So, this rain did not help our developing drought situation much.
Have a great weekend! Hope all the Mom’s out there have a great Mother’s Day! I’ll have your next video online Monday morning, before 5.
