Good morning! Happy Valentines Day! Just a very brief update on our forecast before I get on an airplane this morning. Long day ahead. Temperatures are warming up! In fact Thursday and Friday will pretty remarkable mid February days! And, as you will see, even early next week will be warm. A cool front arriving by Friday night may bring a few showers, but hardly any in the way of cooler temperatures.
TODAY: Mostly cloudy, mild. High 70. Rain chances under 20%. Mostly cloudy tonight. Low near 60.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Amazing warmth next few days, especially Thursday and Friday. Cool Front brings a few showers Friday night, but even behind the front, the weekend temperatures won’t be much cooler. Small rain chance each day.
RECORD HIGH FRIDAY: Remarkable warmth across the southeast US Friday ahead of that week cold front. With a high of 80 expected Friday in Montgomery we will be close to record territory. The record is 81. Amazing in February. We like it!
I’ll be back in Alabama late tonight. There will probably be a video rather than a blog for you. My guess is you may see one online at or around 8AM. Happy Valentines Day! On a personal note, I’m thrilled that MLB Pitchers and Catchers report to camp tomorrow as Spring training begins.
