SATURDAY UPDATE: Cool Saturday – Nice String of Days Sunday through Thursday

  Good Morning!  Overnight, rain was widespread but light.  Today, the best rain chance will be during the first half of the day, but the main rain shield will shift southeastward later in the day.  The Gulf coast will get drenched again today and tomorrow.

     The news for us gets a lot better starting Sunday, and continuing through most of next week.  We will see an extended string of storm-free days.  Temperatures will be below normal most of the week.  In fact, a Cold Front sweeps through the state Tuesday night.  We’ll see a couple of mornings in the 40’s on Wednesday and Thursday morning.  The risk of showers will return perhaps as early as Friday.

TODAY:  (Central Alabama) Risk of light rain early, mainly before lunchtime. Mostly cloudy this afternoon & tonight.  Slight chance of showers tonight.  Cool…High today only 67. (Normal 78)  Low tonight 54. 

(Southeast Alabama)  Showers and thunderstorms likely at times much of today & tonight.  High today near 70.  Low tonight 56.

(Auburn for A-Day)  Risk of scattered showers from 11am to 2PM.  Cool.  High 65.

(Tuscaloosa for A-Day)  Risk of a few showers, mainly before 2PM.  Cloudy & cool.  High 66.

Here’s the set-up today. Another Gulf Coast soaker. Only spotty showers over central Alabama.

SUNDAY:   Cloudy early, then mostly sunny.  Nice day.  High 76.  Mainly clear at night.  Low 54.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Great string of storm-free days through Thursday.  Cool days and chilly nights.  Coolest day will be Wednesday.  Coolest morning will be Thursday morning.  Showers possible by Friday.

Cool front sweeps through the state Tuesday night.  Wednesday will be breezy and cool.  Wednesday night will be clear and cold, for so late in the season.

Unusually cool for so late in the season, especially by mid-week.  A warming trend begins the following weekend.

BEACH FORECAST:  I’m sorry to say, the Beach Forecast will be rather dismal again this weekend.  Showers and thunderstorms are likely today and Sunday.  Remember, it never rains in the restaurant.  I’ll be there late next week.  I hoping for better luck.

POLLEN FORECAST:  From the folks at  the pollen count will be in the medium range today, high on Sunday and medium high Monday through Wednesday.

There will be another blog update in the morning.  Have a nice weekend!


Another Storm System Approaches – Nicer Pattern Late Weekend – FRIDAY Video

 Happy Friday!  There’s more rain in our future.  The next Gulf Coast storm system will drench the area by tonight and part f the day Saturday.  However, our weekend is not a washout.  I’ll fill you in on the return of dry and nicer weather later in the weekend and into next week.  Is there any “big ticket” weather in our future. 

Small chance of showers daytime today…but, showers and storms become likely tonight.

Future Radar overnight.

Rain ends by mid-day Saturday. Nicer weather for the rest of the weekend. Nice Monday through Wednesday.

There’s no way to sugar-coat this weekend’s Beach Forecast.

Couple of chilly mornings…but then a nice warming trend later next week.

Risk of Rain Returns – Much Cooler Days Ahead– WEDNESDAY Video

Good Morning!   Big weather changes are underway. Rain and storms will return to the state today.  Get ready for some much cooler days and nights.  The pattern through the weekend will be wet at times.  How long will we stay in this new pattern? We’ll look ahead through the next 10 days. 

Big changes and rain and thunderstorms overspread the state today.

Much cooler days are on the way with a risk of showers just about everyday. Coolest day, by far will be Friday. Nicest day will be Monday.

Heaviest rainfall will be closer to the coast over the next several days.

Not a good Beach Weekend.

The below normal pattern will linger for several days.

Near Record High Today – Showers & Storms Return Tomorrow – TUESDAY Video

  Good Morning!   Today will be like a day in late May.  In fact, we may come close to the record high of 88 from 1936.  But get ready for some big weather changes.  Late week could be as much as 20° cooler.  Showers and thunderstorms return tomorrow.  The risk of showers will “tease” the area for several days.  I have adjusted the rain chances through the weekend.

Today will be sunny and warm. In fact, we could even use the word HOT. The record high is 88 from 1936. Today we will “tease” that record. Dewpoints will be in the 50’s, so humidity won’t be a big factor.

Today will be like a day in late May.

Showers and storms return tomorrow. Some strong storms are possible especially closer to the coast.

Showers and storms Wednesday. Much cooler late week….a big change. At least the risk of showers will be in the forecast through Sunday.

The warmest day will be today. The coolest morning and daytime will be Friday.

Beautiful Start to The New Week – Mid-Week Storm System

  Good Morning!   The news could not be better as we start the new week.  Sunshine and warmer temperatures.  Showers and storms return by Wednesday, but it does not look severe.  Cool late week with occasional round of showers.  I have updated the rain chance and the temperatures through the weekend.

You could not write a better script for today. Sunny & Warmer. Enjoy this. Today will be one of the nicest days of the whole week.

The normal high is 76. Today we’ll be in the 80’s

Mid Week storm system will bring in showers and thunderstorms by Wednesday.

This week, unusually cold air invades the Plains states. We will only sample the edges of the cool air here in Alabama.

Late in the week and into the weekend, a stalled front will be stretched across the northern Gulf. Ripples of low pressure will ride along the front, bringing at least a chance of showers from time late week and into the weekend.

Nice through Tuesday. Showers and storms Wednesday. Occasional showers Friday through Sunday. Cooler mid to late week.

The warmest weather will be today & Tuesday. COOL but not cold mid to late week and this weekend.
