Weather Forecast For Wednesday April 11

This is some of the nicest weather we've had in weeks. Daytime highs are expected to climb to the lower to mid 70s under mainly sunny skies. An isolated morning shower likely with temperatures during the afternoon in the 40s.

Tuesday's high is likely to rise into the upper 50s, forecasters said, and Tuesday night's low will be around 40. Warm air will ahead of the warm front will usher in warmer temperatures to the state. Southwest wind 6 to 11 miles per hour increasing to 15 to 20 miles per hour in the morning. For the middle and latter parts of this week, a high pressure system will bring a brighter, warmer, and all-in-all more favorable weather vibe for the Azalea Festival. It is possible rain could continue until the evening. Again - we'll be fine-tuning the timing of the potential weekend rain/snow-maker as newer computer models come in over the next few days. I have a 60% chance of rain on Friday and 70% Saturday as the front moves through. We do still see some minor moisture moving over OH tomorrow morning, and we are extending its reach a little farther south in our forecast this morning.

Dudley said this week's storm is only expected to bring about a tenth of an inch of rain.

SATURDAY: Partly sunny. Chance late/evening showers. Expect rain chances in Tuscaloosa at 80 percent.

One of the reasons for the boost of warm air is the wind direction and speed. A few stronger storms could develop so make sure you stay alert. A few showers may be possible late Saturday night as a backdoor cold front to our northeast starts pushing southward. Temperatures will be in the upper 40s, possibly even the low 50s. At first, road temperatures will limit accumulation in the daylight in lower elevations.
