Isolated Showers & Storms Today

Good morning, and welcome to a new day!

April 27th, 2012 has arrived. Today we will be reminded over and over about what happened one year ago today. Marking, remembering, and honoring are all good for us. As you reflect on what happened that awful April day in 2011, just know we are there with you. If I never had to interrupt another program on WHNT on the account of destructive storms, I’d be okay with that.

The fact of the matter, though, is that things like this are a part of life in the southern United States. We know storms will happen again; it’s just a matter of time. April 27th is the benchmark, and most likely, we won’t see anything like that again for a long, long time. I can promise you this…if and when it does, we will still be there for you to give it 110% to get you through it.

Today will be a relatively quiet day weather-wise for most of us. A few scattered thunderstorms are possible mainly in extreme North Alabama and into Southern Middle Tennessee. There’s a cool front nearby that is in the process of stalling almost on the state line. Near that front, isolated showers and a few storms will develop after 7 AM.

Like yesterday, there’s a small chance that a storm or two could be strong with some hail, but the risk is very low.

Expect highs around 80 degrees today.

WHNT is all over North Alabama today with our Taking Action Weather Event!

Brandon Chambers is at the Russellville Wal-Mart, Christina Meeks is in Guntersville at Wal-Mart, and I will be at the Madison Home Depot after 10 AM. For more info on our Taking Action Weather Event, click here!
