Good News

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “on the positive side, highs will only be in the 80s today across much of North and East Alabama thanks to rain and storms; temperatures reach the 90s in areas south and west of Birmingham where showers and storms will be fewer in number.”
