Good Morning! It was a very wild Saturday across the South and especially here in Alabama, from two rounds of severe weather. Today will be a nice contrast in the wake of the storm system.
We have a nice, extended-streak storm-free days ahead, at least through Wednesday. There will be a late week storm system. Details are a little fuzzy. More below.
TODAY: Partly sunny this morning. Mostly sunny later. Breezy. North winds at 10 to 20 mph. High 77. Clear, cool…Low 52 tonight. Another nice Sunday, after a wild Saturday.
Here’s the map set-up today. Stormy day in Florida with the front that brought the storms yesterday. We’re on the east side of high pressure. Breezy day.
TALLADEGA TODAY: Talladega had stormy Saturday. Winds gusted to 46 mph late yesterday afternoon in a severe thunderstorm. No hail. Today, thankfully will be much nicer for the Geico 500 which starts at 1PM. Clouds through mid morning , then gradual clearing. Breezy. High 73.
NEXT FEW DAYS: Storm-free through Wednesday. Significant warming trend. We’ll be in the 80’s Tuesday through Thursday. Showers and storms are possible by Thursday night into Friday. Timing is still a question, that’s why the rain chances are on the small side.
Will the late week storm system be severe? Maybe. Maybe not. Details are still a little “muddy”. Stay tuned. We’ll know more tomorrow.
A profile of the next 10 days shows a series of very warm days.
WILD SEVERE WEATHER SATURDAY: Numerous Severe Weather Reports from two rounds of severe weather Saturday. Including 5 tornado reports, 77 large hail, 8 reports of baseball size or larger and 97 wind damage reports. (These are preliminary from SPC). Here’s a cool interactive map.

POLLEN: Three of the next five days will be in the medium to high range. So, Pollen is still an issue. Thanks to the folks at pollen.com.
I’ll have a complete video update tomorrow morning. Have a nice Sunday!
