Forecaster: Ryan Stinnett

SPRING ROLLS ALONG: The great weather has returned today with warm and mostly sunny conditions. The rain from yesterday is out of here and we are seeing very few if any clouds this afternoon. Everyone is back into the 70s today and it is a terrific day. Overnight, the clear conditions will persist and it may be a little chilly as many areas should see upper 40s by tomorrow morning, but by tomorrow afternoon we should all be seeing some excellent 80s for highs. Mostly sunny conditions will continue, but late in the day we will see clouds increasing and overnight, showers could return to the state.

ON THE MAPS: Center of low pressure is located over eastern Colorado. To its southwest, a cold front extends back across the Rockies and into the Southwest. East of it, a warm front extends out into the Central Plains of Kansas and down through Oklahoma to about Shreveport then from there it becomes more of a stationary front across the Gulf Coast Region. The low will be moving out into the Plains today and will cause showers and storms to develop. The low will continue eastward and will be sending a weakening cold front towards the Southeast. This front will be enhancing uplift enough to produce scattered showers across the Southeast that will likely affect portions of Alabama late Thursday night and during the day Friday.
