SUNDAY UPDATE: Perfect Easter – Warming Trend This Week

Happy Easter!  On this Easter morning, we’ll be in the 30’s, one more time at Dawn.  But, the late Season Cold Snap is fading.  There will be some nice warming today. The normal high is 74.  We’ll be close to normal this afternoon. 

    A nice Warming Trend is in the cards this week.  Monday & Tuesday will be picture-postcard perfect.  Risk of showers and perhaps some thunderstorms return by Wednesday, more likely Wednesday night and Thursday.

TODAY:  Last Easter was turbulent, with dozens of tornadoes. Today will be nearly perfect.  Sunshine will dominate.  High 74.  Clear skies tonight.  Not quite as chilly.  Low 44.  West wind 5 to 9 mph. 

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Great start to the new week!  Monday and Tuesday will be beautiful, as the warming trend continues.  Small risk of showers/storms Wednesday.  Better chance Wednesday night & Thursday.  The Friday and Saturday outlook is a little fuzzy.  We’ll hang on to a small rain chance, subject to change. 

NEXT STORM SYSTEM:  A formidable storm system in the Midwest will begin to effect the state by Wednesday Night and into Thursday.  The parent Low will be far away in Iowa.  It appears the best dynamics for severe weather will be to the west and northwest of Alabama.  Although the severe risk appears small in  Alabama for Wednesday night and Thursday, it is still possible that a small risk will be introduced in the coming days.  We’ll see.  Stay tuned.

Wednesday, SPC has indicated a severe risk just west and northwest of us. 

TORNADOES LAST EASTER:  Last Easter (April 12, 2020) was a BIG tornado day.  A historic 159 tornadoes touched down across 6 southern states. 

Here’s in Alabama there were 29 tornadoes statewide.  So, nice that we’ll have such a tranquil Easter this year. 

POLLEN:  No relief for everybody with allergies.  The pollen forecast for the next few days is not very good. High today.  Medium to high next few days. 

Tornadoes last Easter… This Easter picture postcard perfect!

I’ll have a complete video update tomorrow morning.  Enjoy this beautiful Easter Weather!
