NFL Draft Countdown
April 29 2021 07:00 pm

TONIGHT: It will be a balmy night. Lows this evening will be in the mid 70s. There will be a few stray showers before midnight, then some patchy fog early tomorrow morning. 

FRIDAY: Highs will trend more seasonable, at around 90°. There will be scattered afternoon showers and storms. Some could be strong. It will be important to watch the radar throughout the day. 

THROUGH THE WEEKEND: Barry will start moving rain inland this weekend and we will experience the outer bands of Barry. That means intermittent rain and isolated storms throughout the weekend. We will also get a small break from the heat as highs will be in the upper 80s.

10PM BARRY UPDATE: As of now, Tropical Storm Barry is veering north, winds at 50 mph. Late Friday night tropical storm force winds will be felt along the Louisiana coast and the slow progress of Barry will elevate the flooding potential for eastern Louisiana and Western Mississippi. High surf, rip current and uneasy seas will be the greatest danger along Alabama’s coast with scattered showers and storms from Friday through Sunday. Improvements across Alabama will begin late Sunday into Monday,
