Central AL Forecast: WEATHER AWARE Tuesday Morning


Some rain possible later tonight, after sunset, especially for North Alabama. Temps will hold in the mid 50s. Where there isn’t rain, there will be clouds.

Tuesday morning gets a bit more messy. I line of storms races through and that will produce some strong winds, booms of thunder and heavy rain. It starts in West Alabama around 5am and will be along I-65 8am-9am and out of East Alabama by noon. So, I do not anticipate that this storm will tarry.

Most severe weather will stay well south of I-20. With southeast Alabama likely having the greatest chance of stronger storms, simply because they will have a bit more day time heating before the cold front reaches them.

Then, temperatures cool quickly. Lows will drop into the upper 30s for some spots in North Alabama by Wednesday morning.
For mid and late week, dry air rules with moderating temperatures each day through Friday. We’ll only see highs in the mid to upper 60s on Wednesday, which will be a few degrees below normal for the first day of April. Thursday will be slightly warmer with near average highs in the low 70s under a sunny sky. Friday, we’ll see a small chance of rain with mid 70s for high temperatures.
