Forecasts on track; Hot for the next few days: the Alabama weather blog
Our forecasts are on track early this afternoon. Lowered today’s temperatures by a few degrees. At 2 p.m. it was 87F in Tuscaloosa, 86F in Birmingham and 83F in Gadsden and Anniston.
Highs are still expected to hit near 90F. The sky is partly cloudy with a beautiful field of cumulus clouds in place across the state. Tonight’s lows will fall in the 1960s.
The 90s will be common over the next few days. We will be dry all week and until late Friday. A few showers and storms will appear by then as a cold front tries to approach from the north. Showers and passing storms will be the norm next weekend and Memorial Day.
In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Ana clings with winds of 40 mph. It made the transition to a tropical storm early this morning, but it has lost its convection and is expected to weaken over the next 18 hours or so, opening into a trough.
