SUNNY SKIES TO START THE WEEK… Sunshine and warm temperatures are ahead not only on this Monday but also over the next few days. High temperatures today will be in the low- to mid-80s with plenty of sunshine throughout the day. Get outside and enjoy the nice weather today and tomorrow if you can! We have rain ahead toward the end of the week. Scattered showers will return late Thursday into Friday and Saturday. A few more Monday morning forecast notes are below.
FEW CLOUDS TUESDAY INTO WEDNESDAY; WARM TEMPS… Other than a few passing clouds, Tuesday is slated to be quite nice. We’ll call it mostly sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s. Other than a few more clouds around our region on Wednesday, midweek looks dry and nice. Highs on Wednesday will again be in the mid-80s.
SHOWERS POSSIBLE THURSDAY INTO FRIDAY… Rain will become possible yet again on Thursday out ahead of a decaying frontal boundary. Scattered showers will be possible Friday into Saturday, but there is a good chance neither day will be an “all day washout.” High temperatures later this week will remain in the low-80s.
RAIN AROUND THIS WEEKEND… Early model guidance points to a chance of rain and thunderstorms on Sunday, although forecast confidence is fairly low in that timeframe. Saturday also could feature a few widely scattered showers. We’ll keep watching the data this week and bring you the latest in the RedZone Weather app.
10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF APRIL 27 TORNADO OUTBREAK TOMORROW… Tomorrow (Tuesday, April 27, 2021) marks the 10 year anniversary of the historic April 27, 2011 super outbreak of tornadoes that affected so many people across the Deep South, particularly in Alabama. 252 people lost their lives on that day due to tornadoes in the state of Alabama alone. Thousands were injured in 62 tornadoes that happened across the state on that day. Several of those tornadoes were long-track, violent, large tornadoes that directly affected many locales. The outbreak featured multiple EF5 tornadoes that struck the northern parts of Alabama. Tomorrow, we remember all the people we lost on that day.
