Tuscaloosa was the home of one of the most devastating tornadoes of recent history. The sincere hope, of course, is that this won’t be a worry for today’s forecast.
At 753PM, CT, Tuscaloosa was reporting a temperature of 53 degrees with fair skies. Dew points in the upper 40s were indicative of the threat for fog by tomorrow morning, particularly given the clearing skies. A weak boundary is being analyzed over the Tennessee Valley at the moment, and as it moves towards the Gulf overnight into tomorrow, there is a chance some of that fogginess turns into low clouds, producing a bit of drizzle on Thursday night into the wee hours Friday morning.
High pressure in the Midwest will build south quickly on Friday. The threat for the light rain will move to southern Alabama, while Tuscaloosa will be left with sunny skies and unseasonably cool temperatures as they prepare for the weekend.
