Thursday April 17, 2014
Forecaster: James Spann

WARMER DAYS AHEAD: The warming trend continues across Alabama today… the sky will be partly to mostly sunny with a high in the upper 60s. Clouds thicken tonight ahead of the next wave approaching from the west.

SOME RAIN TOMORROW: Rain will likely move into Alabama early tomorrow morning; we will forecast a few periods of rain during the day with a cloudy sky and a high around 70. The heaviest and most widespread rain, however, will come over the southern half of the state. Up our way, rain totals should be relatively light, and there is no risk of severe weather. The rain will end by mid to late afternoon.

EASTER WEEKEND: Still looks warm and dry with ample sunshine Saturday and Sunday… the high Saturday will be in the upper 70s, and low 80s are very possible Sunday.
