Storms Return Before The Week Is Over

4 hours 58 min ago

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

RADAR CHECK: As of mid-afternoon, no showers or storms have formed across Alabama today. We do note a field of cumulus clouds over the central counties of the state, so a few isolated showers or storms are possible this evening, but most places will stay dry.

TOMORROW: No real change; we expect a mix of sun and clouds with a high not too far from 80 degrees. A few scattered showers or storms could fire up during the afternoon and evening hours, but nothing widespread, and many communities will stay dry.

FRIDAY NIGHT FRONT: A cold front will approach, and a few showers are possible during the day Friday, but the main band of organized showers and storms will come Friday night. SPC has the standard “slight risk” defined for parts of North and West Alabama; primary threats will come from hail and gusty straight line winds… the tornado threat looks very low at this point. Rain amounts of around 1/2 can be expected, and the main window for the organized showers and storms will come from about 3:00 p.m. until midnight.

COOL EASTER WEEKEND: Saturday will be sunny, but noticeably cooler with a high in the low 60s. We are projecting a low between 38 and 42 degrees early Sunday, with potential for frost across the colder valleys and protected areas. There is a high probability this will be the last frost/freeze threat of the season… next time it gets this cold will probably come in mid to late October.

Sunday will be another sunny day with a high around 70 degrees.

NEXT WEEK: Moisture returns quickly, and showers and storms are possible Monday and Tuesday. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

GULF COAST WEATHER: Mostly sunny weather continues on the Gulf Coast tomorrow and Friday; a few showers could show up Friday night and Saturday morning, but they will be widely spaced. The rest of the weekend will be dry. Highs on the coast will be mostly in the low 70s, but they will drop into the 60s Saturday. Sea water temperatures remain in the mid to upper 60s.

A Calmer Weather Day

13 hours 55 min ago

An all new edition of the ABC 33/40 Weather Xtreme video is available in the player on the right sidebar of the blog. You can subscribe to the Weather Xtreme video on iTunes by clicking here.

AT DAYBREAK: Some lingering light rain over Lee County around Opelika is moving into Georgia, and the rest of the state is dry as the day begins following a day of hail producing thunderstorms. See hundreds of hail images on my Google Plus photo library here.

Today will be partly sunny and warm with high in the 77-81 degree range. An afternoon shower or storm can’t be ruled out, and where storms do happen to form they could be strong (SPC has a “marginal” severe weather risk up for most of the state), but there is little in the way of dynamic forcing, and storms should be few and far between. The HRRR shows very little activity across the state late this afternoon (this map is valid at 5pm CT)…

TOMORROW: Not much change; perhaps a little better coverage of showers and storms, but they will remain pretty scattered, and a decent part of the day will be dry. The high tomorrow will be close to 80 degrees.

FRIDAY NIGHT COLD FRONT: An approaching surface front will bring an organized band of showers and storms into the state Friday afternoon and Friday night… for now it looks like the core threat of severe storms will come from about 3:00 p.m. until 12:00 midnight. SPC has much of North and West Alabama in the standard “slight” severe weather risk.

There will be a decent degree of surface based instability, but wind profiles really don’t favor a tornado threat. Storms Friday evening could produce hail and strong gusty winds as they move through the state along with rain amounts of 1/2 to 1 inch. The rain ends soon after midnight Friday night.

COOL EASTER WEEKEND: Saturday will be a bright, sunny day with a high only in the low 60s, and the latest GFS run is printing a low of 39 degrees for Birmingham early Sunday morning. This means there will be the threat of scattered frost across North/Central Alabama, and colder valleys could even see a freeze. Sure looks like this will be our last freeze/frost threat until October.

The day Sunday will be beautiful with ample sunshine and a high around 70 degrees.

NEXT WEEK: Moisture returns, and showers and storms are possible Monday. See the Weather Xtreme video for maps, graphics, and more details.

GULF COAST WEATHER: Expect mostly sunny days and fair nights on the coast from Panama City over to Gulf Shores through Friday with highs in the 70s and lows in the 60s. A few widely scattered showers or storms will be possible Friday night and Saturday morning, and then the rest of the weekend will be dry; highs drop back into the 60s Saturday. The sea water temperature early this morning at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab is 66 degrees.

Storms Slowly Weakening

Tue, 03/31/2015 - 22:09

There are no severe thunderstorm warnings in effect for any part of Alabama at 10:00 p.m…

Still, stronger storms over North Alabama could produce some small hail and frequent lightning for another hour or so. Tomorrow promises to be a calmer day with only isolated showers and a partly sunny sky.

I will have a new discussion and a fresh Weather Xtreme video by 7:00 a.m. tomorrow…
