Thursday April 24, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

WARMER TEMPERATURES: Today will be another dry day for Alabama; the sky partly to mostly sunny with a high up in the low 80s, making it one of the warmest days so far in 2014. To the west, SPC has the standard "slight risk" of severe weather up from roughly Memphis down to Shreveport, but those storms will fizzle fast as they near Alabama late tonight.

TOMORROW: A band of showers and storms will enter the northwest corner of Alabama around midnight tonight, but they will weaken quickly as the upper air support lifts out… by the time they reach Birmingham, Tuscaloosa, Anniston, and Gadsden during the pre-dawn hours (2:00 to 6:00 a.m.) there won't be much left, and rain amounts will be light and spotty.

The day tomorrow looks nice with a partly sunny sky and a high around 80 degrees. I don't expect any rain in the state after the early morning showers end.
