SUMMERTIME PATTERN SHOWING UP EARLY FOR THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND
Saturday morning will start off with mostly cloudy skies, but those clouds should dissipate rather quickly and leave us with a good bit of sunshine for the late morning through the early afternoon hours. We are expecting some scattered showers and storms to form during the main heating of the day with the highest coverage occurring during the afternoon and evening hours. Highs will top out in the mid-80s to the lower 90s across the area from northwest to southeast.

Much of the same story for Sunday… a good bit of sun to start but convective clouds build during the heating of the day. Scattered afternoon to early evening showers and storms will be possible again. Highs will be in the mid-80s to the lower 90s across the area from northwest to southeast.

NO CHANGE IN THE PATTERN FOR MEMORIAL DAY
A near rinse and repeat forecast for Monday as we’ll start with a good bit of sunshine, but the afternoon heat will bring developing convective clouds and the chance of scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be in the mid-80s to the lower 90s across the area from northwest to southeast.

TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY LOOK PRETTY SIMILAR
With the main weather action staying off to our north with the main jet stream, our weather in Central Alabama will sound like a broken record for the rest of the week. Each day will mainly start off with a decent amount of sunshine, but we’ll have a chance of those typical summertime-type scattered afternoon and early evening showers and thunderstorms. Highs will be just a touch cooler as we’ll see temperatures topping out in the mid to upper 80s on each day.

THE TROPICS
The start of the Atlantic Hurricane Season is only 9 days away, but we have already seen Tropical Storm Arthur form well before the start. The good news is that we are not expecting any tropical cyclone activity to form throughout the next five days across the Gulf of Mexico, the Caribbean Sea, or the tropical Atlantic Ocean.

ON THIS DAY IN WEATHER HISTORY
1987 – A powerful tornado virtually wiped the small southwest Texas community of Saragosa off the map. The twister destroyed eighty- five percent of the structures in the town killing thirty persons and injuring 121 others in the town of population 183. The tornado hurled trucks and autos through adobe and wood-frame homes, with some vehicles blown 500 feet.
