First Alert: Cool again tonight, then much warmer!
Dry weather through Sunday
MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Another chilly evening is ahead for central and south Alabama! Temperatures will drop into the 50s quickly after sunset; morning lows will end up in the low to mid 40s.
No frost, thankfully, but certainly colder than normal for mid-April in our state. Sunshine dominates the next several days and we expect no rain through at least Sunday night.
It’s a well-deserved stretch after the last six weeks of active weather we’ve experienced. Just to give you an idea of how busy 2022 has been, let this sink in: Alabama is in first place in the United States for total number of tornado warnings issued so far this year, and in second place behind only Arkansas for number of tornado watches.
So yes, we are all happy to see a dominant area of high pressure and quiet weather.
Skies will be mostly sunny just about each day. The only exception will be tomorrow, which will bring partly to mostly cloudy skies. That doesn’t mean rain or dreary conditions, just more clouds than sun during the day.
Outside of tomorrow it’s going to be very bright and increasingly warm each afternoon. Temperatures will be cool today and tonight in the upper 60s and lower 40s respectively, but things change beginning tomorrow afternoon.
We’ll head up into the middle 70s tomorrow before rising into the lower 80s by Thursday. It won’t be record-breaking warmth, but we’re likely to see temps soar into the middle 80s this weekend into early next week.
Other than the clouds tomorrow, there really aren’t any negatives to the forecast through Sunday evening. No rain, no storms, no brutal cold, no intense heat, no overly windy weather, no major fog...just a nice and quiet period of late April weather.
Then comes early next week’s rain chances...
This doesn’t look like a heavy rain or strong storm issue for us, but isolated to scattered showers and a few storms do appear possible both Monday and Tuesday. Once agreement gets better among our long-range forecast models we will be able to better highlight when the highest rain chances are over that 48-hour period.
