Severe Weather Risk Friday

With no big forcing mechanism around through Thursday, we only expect a few isolated showers and storms to develop.  If a storm develops, it could be strong with gusty winds and hail, but we don’t expect anything like we saw on Tuesday.   Daytime highs will stay warm, with temperatures nearing 80 degrees in the afternoon.

On Friday, our weather changes again.  Moisture will rapidly increase on strong south winds.  A cold front will be up in Tennessee and will gradually work down into central Alabama by late afternoon and evening.  Some storms Friday evening will likely be strong to severe with this feature.   Damaging winds and large hail will be the main threats.  We expect most of the storms to be out of the area by midnight or so Friday night.
That front will cool things off for the Easter Weekend.  Weather guidance suggests a good supply of sunshine both days with highs Saturday in the lower 60s.  Easter Sunrise services will be quite chilly!  Temperatures early Sunday morning will drop to the upper 30s to lower 40s!  By afternoon, though, the weather will be quite pleasant with highs in the upper 60s.
Looking ahead, next week looks rainy and stormy at times.  After all, we are in early April now, and we’ll have to be on the lookout for the potential of severe weather at times.
