We have a perfect weekend forecast, and even beyond the weekend, our nice string of days will continue well into next week. Temperatures will be a little warmer. Tuesday and Wednesday could be the warmest days so far this year. If we don’t get to 90°, we’ll be close. Widely scattered storms could pop up in the afternoon heat Wednesday and Thursday, but the better rain chances hold off until Thursday night into Friday.
A big ridge of high pressure, building above us at 20,000 ft. will keep us warm and dry for several days, at it will keep approaching storm systems at bay until late week.
TODAY: Sunshine and nearly perfect. High 82. South wind 5-10 mph. Mainly clear tonight. Not as cool. Low 54.
NEXT FEW DAYS: The warming trend will continue. We’ll be in the upper 80’s by Monday through Wednesday. Widely scattered storms could pop up in the afternoon heat Wednesday and Thursday, but the better rain chances hold off until Thursday night into Friday.
TALLADEGA RACE WEEKEND: The only very minor issue involves a weak front which will enter north Alabama tomorrow. That front could touch off widely scattered showers, perhaps. Chances are small. Otherwise, it’s a great Race Weekend forecast. Little cool tonight. But, Sunday’s high 80.
BEACH FORECAST: Great Beach forecast for the next few days.
We will never forget the terrible tornado outbreak on this day in 2011. Alabama was the epicenter of the worst tornado outbreak in US History. 62 tornadoes in Alabama and 252 lives lost, eight years ago today.
I will have another forecast update early on Sunday morning. I’ll update you on the week ahead. Have a nice Weekend!
