Alabama has certainly seen it’s share of terrible weather this spring. I suspect our forecast through the middle of this week will be a bit less intimidating.
At 1153AM, CT, Anniston was reporting clear skies and a temperature of 67 degrees. While temperatures were warm, dew points sat merely in the low to mid 40s, so it wasn’t exactly summerlike northeast of Birmingham. A strong jet lay south of the Gulf Coast, keeping any frontal activity well offshore, and providing for a pleasant, subsident air mass, which is also working to stave off other inclement weather from the north.
A trough in the northern High Plains will drive southeastward, carrying with it a less active cold front than would be expected, given it’s strength. The front will pass without incident on Wednesday in the early evening, save for a switch in the wind direction.

That change in wind will, I guess, bring cooler temperatures. Don’t be surprised if Wednesday highs are higher than forecast here. It won’t be colder, though. Check out this beautifully clear satellite image of Alabama.
