TOMORROW MORNING: We need to mention that we expect mid to upper 30s across the colder pockets of North/Central Alabama at daybreak tomorrow, and some frost is possible. The best chance of frost will come over the valleys of Northeast Alabama.

Tomorrow will be another sunny day with a high in the upper 60s.

SOME RAIN FRIDAY: A disturbance will bring the risk of showers to Alabama Friday, but with weak dynamics and limited moisture, rain should be light and spotty. Amounts will be generally under 1/4 inch, and a decent part of the day will be dry.

EASTER WEEKEND: Looks very nice. Mostly sunny mild days, fair cool nights. Highs in the mid 70s, lows in the 50s.

We will bring in the chance of some rain early next week on Monday, but at this point it doesn’t look like a heavy rain or severe weather threat. See the Weather Xtreme video for the maps, graphics, and details.

AT THE BEACH: Lots of sun today from Panama City over to Gulf Shores with a high in the upper 60s on the immediate coast. A few widely scattered showers are possible Thursday and Friday, then expect mostly sunny weather over the weekend. Highs Saturday and Sunday on the coast will be in the low 70s, with mid 70s inland. Sea water temperatures are running mostly in the mid 60s.

NEED HELP WITH YOUR WEATHER RADIO? We will be at Academy Sports on Skyland Blvd in Tuscaloosa today from 3:30 until 6:30… we will program your weather radio, or be glad to answer questions if you have them.
