Easter weekend set for record temperatures

Easter weekend set for record temperatures

The wind really backs off Friday night, and under a clear sky, lows fall into the 30s. With the some sun, western communities will top in the low 60's with our eastern areas in the low 50's.

Saturday: A broad area of low pressure in the upper-levels of the atmosphere continued to pull clouds and light rain into Alabama through Saturday morning.

7-Day Forecast: Rain is gone on Sunday making for mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the mid 60's for your Easter activities.

But stormy conditions are predicted to begin from Tuesday, threatening floods, as temperatures dwindle. Temperatures will also bump up a bit, due to the southerly winds on the west side of the high.

Leeds is to expect temperatures of up to 22°C on Saturday and Sunday, while Monday is set to be slightly cloudier and peaking at 20°C. Still some disagreement with the data, so we'll introduce a chance for a few isolated showers and storms, but it will definitely not be anything close to a washout.

"We could still see more record-breaking temperatures tomorrow and on Easter Monday too". Winds will stay light and out of the south between 5 and 10 miles per hour. Temperatures this week stay mostly above average as we should be sitting at 60 degrees for our afternoon highs this time of year. Friday is expected to break the pattern, though, with a high near 57. Because of the rain and clouds, highs will only top out in the upper 40s.

Easter weekend will be filled with sunshine and high temperatures above 20 degrees.
