80’s Today & Tomorrow – Strong/Severe Storm Threat Late Saturday – FRIDAY Video

Happy Friday!  Is this February? After 84 yesterday, we’ll be in the 80’s again today and tomorrow before a big change, as a storm system brings a strong line of storms to Alabama by Saturday evening and Saturday night.  Parts of our state could see severe storms.  I have the latest on timing and the new severe threat outlook from the Storm Prediction Center.  Then, what’s next?   Could see a strong cold front usher in much colder air during the first few days of March.  We’ll take a peek ahead on your Friday morning personal weather briefing.


We’re in the 80’s again today with the risk of some spotty PM storms.  The record for today is 85 from last year.

Potent storm system affects the state by late tomorrow into tomorrow night, as a line of strong to severe storms enters and tracks across the state.

The Storm Prediction has trimmed the eastern extent of the Marginal Risk area for now, but that could certainly change. The stronger threat level for severe thunderstorms and tornadoes exists across northwest Alabama and points west and northwest.

After the front exits the area early Sunday, much of Sunday and Monday look pretty nice until another shower threat returns Tuesday & Wednesday.

Colder air as we get into the first week of March.  The models continue to advertise a big change.  Stay tuned.

More Rain Ahead – Saturday Severe Weather Threat – THURSDAY Video

Good Morning!  More rain for Alabama for the next few days.  Again today, although the heaviest rain will be across the northern half of the state, some of us will see some heavy downpours.  We’re in the warmer air now with 70’s today and 80+ Friday and Saturday.  But, all eyes are on a Saturday evening, Saturday night storm system which could bring severe weather to the state.  I have the latest on the time line and the new threat level from the Storm Prediction Center.


That stalled front in central Alabama will migrate northward today.  We are in the warm muggy air south of the front.  Scattered showers and storms today and tonight.

The treat of rain will be around through Sunday morning before we get a break.  80+ degrees Friday & Saturday!   Severe weather threat by Saturday evening.  Nice break Sunday afternoon & Monday.

Impressive storm system will affect us with the threat of severe storms Saturday evening and Saturday night.

Marginal risk as far east as Montgomery Saturday evening and deep into south Alabama.  Level 2 slight risk for much of west central and north Alabama.  Enhanced risk northwest Alabama and into MS and TN.

Hang on.  The models continue to advertise a shot of Much Colder air arriving by about March 4 or 5.

More rain: A Few Stronger Storms Today – WEDNESDAY Video

Good Morning!  More rain for Alabama.  Today some of the storms could be strong/severe in spots.  I have the latest from the Storm Prediction Center.  We have 4-5 more days with rain in the forecast, as a parade of storm systems line up.  It appears the strongest system could arrive by Saturday evening. Severe storms area possibility, according to SPC.  I’ll update the set-up and the time line.  And there have been some adjustments to just how much more rainfall Alabama could see in the next few days.


A northward moving warm-front will be a key player today, as big chunk of the state gets into “juicy” air, leading to the threat of strong/severe storms, perhaps even as far east as the I-65 corridor today.  A brief tornado or two can’t be ruled out, along with strong gusty winds and the threat of hail.

Rain continues in the forecast for the several days.  Best chance of thunderstorms  today through Saturday.  Severe weather can’t be ruled out Saturday or Saturday night.  We’re watching this system closely.

Potent storm system will begin to affect the state Saturday and Saturday night.  Many of the ingredients for severe weather will be present.  Tornadoes are also possible.

SPC has already highlighted much of Alabama for s severe weather risk Saturday PM.




Several Days of Rain for Alabama – TUESDAY Video

Good Morning!  The word for Alabama for the next several days is RAIN.  But, how much rain, depends on where you will get.  Some parts of the state will see “boatloads” of rain, other places not as much.  It’s a complex pattern.  Each day will be different.  I’ll do my best to give you the condensed digest of what to expect.  And, attention winter weather fans:  Are we done with winter?  Apparently not.  I’ll show you a pattern change on the not too distant horizon.


Today will be cool, windy and wet at times.  Highs in the 50’s.  Wind will make it seem cooler.   The warm front near the coast will start moving northward overnight tonight.

Tomorrow and Thursday we are back in the 70’s with showers and thunderstorms around from time to time.  The heaviest rain will be along and near the frontal system.

Rain is in the forecast each day…even a few thunderstorms at times.  Friday will be the warmest day as we tease 80 degrees.  A front on Saturday night could bring a round of strong storms.  It’s too early to say if it will be a severe weather situation.

This map shows how much the rain totals will vary from north to south.  Not much rain in the Dothan area, but there could be 2-4″ amounts north of I-85 and 5-7″+ in north Alabama where a Flash Flood Watch is in effect.

Very Wet, Active Week Ahead – MONDAY Video

Good Morning! What a week ahead.  It will be very active and very wet.  Locally heavy rainfall amounts are the big story.  In fact, the farther north you go in the state, the potential for excessive rain grows.  Today will be the best day of the week, but on this video, I’ll walk you through details, as we face several days of rain and some thunderstorms, too.  Could there be any severe weather?  I’ll run it all down for you in a couple of minutes on your Monday personal weather briefing.

Today will be the “pick of the litter” as far as this week’s weather.  Quiet.  Partly sunny.  Maybe some showers overnight tonight.

Waves of rain and thunderstorms will roll through this week.  Locally heavy rainfall totals.  A few stronger storms can’t be ruled out Wednesday through Friday.  But, a more important front approaches Saturday.

Serious, excessive rainfall amounts are expected from Louisiana through parts of Mississippi, Georgia and Tennessee in the week ahead.

Many of  us could see 2 to 4″ this week, but just north of I-85 amounts ramp up quickly.  Birmingham could see 5 to 7″ and 9-11″+ are a possible in the Tennessee valley.

A powerful frontal system will be approaching Saturday evening and night.  It’s too early to say if we’ll be dealing with a severe weather threat.  It’s not out of the question.  Stay tuned.
