Alabama Skies: SPC updates severe weather risk; only one day to be sunny this week

Published 9:49 pm Sunday, February 25, 2024

The weather forecast for Alabama this week includes some excellent news and some not-so-great news.

After watching models and information from the Storm Prediction Center for the past several days, everything seems to be in agreement for an update to the severe weather threat: It’s disappearing, at least for Alabama. The target zone has moved north, completely out of the area.

The part of the forecast that isn’t so great is the only day we’re expecting sunshine for the next several days is Monday. Although the severe risk is gone, some of us will have some rain Wednesday. Then, as temperatures drop Thursday, we’ll have a slight chance of scattered showers through the weekend.

We’ll also have another very windy day on Monday. As fire departments across the state battled fires Sunday, the same is quite possible Monday.
