Partly cloudy skies are expected today, and abundant sunshine coupled with moderate southwesterly winds will result in near-record breaking warmth for most of the region. Highs will range from the mid 70s in the east to around 80 in the west.
A strong cold front will push across the region tonight, bringing showers and thunderstorms to most of the TN valley. Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible, with damaging winds, large hail, and a few brief tornadoes the primary threats. Gusty northwest winds will push a much colder airmass into the area in the wake of the front.
The passage of a cold front will bring strong to severe thunderstorms to the region this evening and overnight. The threat for storms will begin across northwest AL by 5-6 pm, and should end in the southeastern counties by sunrise Saturday. The main hazards with the storms will be damaging winds and large hail, along with a low threat for brief tornadoes.
This graphic contains daily climate data (climate normals and records) for today for the sites listed. The legend is in the lower left portion of the image. The current "normals" period is 1981-2010. The date for each location represents the year in which the first observations began. However, some weather elements were recorded and/or retained before others at some sites. For example, at Huntsville, precipitation records begin in 1894, but official temperature records start in 1907. Following is a list containing the starting year that continuous weather records began at each site. Location: Year Temperature Records Began/Year Precipitation Records Began... Huntsville:1907/1894... Muscle Shoals:1893/1893... Cullman:1907/1907... Fayetteville:1957/1935... Guntersville:1910/1904... Russellville:1953/1953... Scottsboro:1891/1891...
