SUNDAY UPDATE: Quiet Pattern Next Few Days – Nice Start to the New Week

    Good Morning!  The news is more tranquil across central and south Alabama for a change.  A frontal system, quietly passing through the state this morning will make it to the coast by lunchtime.  Clouds will give way to sun, and the weather news is good for a few days. 

    The new week will begin on a very nice note Monday and Tuesday with sunshine and warmer temperatures. 

   A Gulf Coast disturbance will bring another chance of showers and thunderstorms by Wednesday, but no severe weather is expected. 

     I’m happy to say, I don’t see any “Big Ticket” weather in the next several days that I’m worried about.

TODAY:  Mostly Sunny.  Nice day.  High 77.  West wind at 4 to 8 mph.  Clear and cool tonight.  Low 51.

Quiet in Alabama today, but Florida could see a rough day with a line of severe storms racing through the state.

NEXT FEW DAYS:  Very nice Monday and Tuesday.  Lots of sunshine and warm.  Scattered showers and thunderstorms Wednesday.  Not expected to be severe.  Lingering showers, perhaps, Thursday.

POLLEN:  From Pollen.com…the news for the next few days is not good.  Pollen in the HIGH to very high range.

HISTORIC SATURDAY IN SOUTHWEST ALABAMA:   It could have been US, but this time, it wasn’t.  A massive and historic  wind damage and hail event tore through southwest Alabama early Saturday, in the middle of the night.  There were 66 reports of wind damage and large hail.  Largest hail…4 inches in diameter, softball size, was reported near Orange Beach. That is the ALL-TIME largest hail ever recorded in coastal Alabama since those records began in 1950.

Here’s what baseball size or larger hail can do to your car.  Crazy!

I’ll have a complete video update tomorrow morning.  Have a nice Sunday!
