Alabama’s weather quiet now, but storms kill over a dozen across the South

Stormy conditions left many Alabamians in the dark last night...

Quiet and comfortable for the next few days...

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - An intense line of thunderstorms rolled through the South Sunday and Sunday night, dropping tornadoes in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. As of Monday morning, storm-related deaths were reported in Mississippi and Georgia. Widespread wind damage was the chief issue in central Alabama; at the height of the storms, over 125,000 Alabama Power customers were without electricity. Thousands of trees were blown down across the state, and cleanup efforts will, thankfully, be met with improving weather.

Today’s forecast is split: some remain cloudy while others in south Alabama see sunshine. That will really impact how warm you get today...

Sunshine leads the way for much of the week, with afternoon temperatures in the 70s and morning temperatures in the upper 40s and 50s.

Nicer weather ahead!

A few showers are possible Tuesday night into early Wednesday, but most of the week will be dry.

Our next rain chance returns to the forecast this weekend. There could be more thunderstorms involved...
