In spite of an increase in high clouds, skies will be mostly sunny today. This, along with a southwest wind in the 10-20 mph range, will allow temperatures to warm into the mid 80s during the afternoon.
A light but persistent south-southwest wind will continue to draw moisture northward into the region overnight, with a gradual increase in cloud cover expected by sunrise on Saturday. Lows will be warmer as a result of these factors, with temps in most locations only falling into the lower/mid 60s.
After warm and dry conditions on Friday, low-level moisture will return to the region tonight and Saturday morning. A few thunderstorms will be possible Saturday afternoon, but a greater coverage is expected on Saturday night and Sunday morning as a complex of storms approaches the region from the northwest. Additional storms may redevelop on Sunday afternoon, but this is highly uncertain at the moment. Conditions will be favorable for severe thunderstorms, producing damaging winds, large hail and frequent lightning. A final round of storms along a slow-moving cold front is expected to impact the region on Sunday night and Monday morning.
Conditions will be favorable for severe thunderstorms this weekend, but especially during the period from late Saturday night into Sunday morning...as a complex of thunderstorms pushes southeastward into the region. This activity will have a high likelihood of producing damaging winds, large hail and frequent lightning. Redevelopment of storms on Sunday afternoon will be dependent on impacts from activity earlier in the day, but this activity would likely also be severe.
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...
