As I write this blog, we're finally getting some sunshine across the state. We started the day with dense fog and widespread cloud cover. Temperatures will warm into the lower 70s this afternoon with highs tomorrow in the mid 70s. It's going to feel like Spring. The good news is you'll be able to enjoy some dry days and comfortable temperatures.
SEVERE WEATHER: By tomorrow, severe storms are possible to our west. The bullseye is expected to be Oklahoma. The primary threats will be damaging high winds, but tornadoes are also possible. We are not expecting severe weather in our forecast here locally, but it's possible we could see some storms both Wednesday night and especially Thursday. Don't be surprised to hear some rumbles of thunder.
It looks like we'll escape most of the rain on Wednesday. The best chance for showers and thunderstorms will come Thursday. The high-resolution 4km NAM is depicting the rain chances highest Thursday afternoon. Storms will linger through Thursday night.
COLD AIR IS COMING AGAIN: Dramatically, colder air is in the forecast for Friday and the weekend. Highs Friday will be in the 50s. We'll see temperatures falling Friday evening with breezy conditions. Expect lows in the lower 30s Saturday and Sunday. It would not surprise me to see some frost both Saturday and Sunday. The weekend should be sunny.
TUSCALOOSA AIR SHOW FORECAST: VFR conditions will prevail across the area with a north wind in the forecast. Sunshine will linger both Saturday and Sunday. The high Saturday will reach 55. Highs on Sunday will be in the lower 60s. Make sure to dress warmly during the morning hours with temperatures in the upper 30s and lower 40s.
Have a great afternoon!
