The past few days is what I like to call “fake spring.” It’s like fake friends, the weather smiles in your face then brings you promises of wonderful behavior, and then you are snatched back to seasonal temperatures.


So, don’t put away your jackets and sweaters just yet.

The first official day of spring is Monday, March 20, 2023, which marks the day of the “spring equinox.”

In general, you can expect a difference in temperatures, from Thursday’s 70 degrees, today in the 60s, and this weekend to the 50s.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “there is a chance the rain could briefly change to light snow before ending late tomorrow night and early Sunday across parts of North and East Alabama thanks to dynamic cooling from the cold core upper trough/low. For now, we are not expecting major accumulation or impact with surface temperatures above freezing, but keep in mind these systems usually bring a surprise or two, so keep an eye on the forecast for potential changes.”

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.

LOOK: The most expensive weather and climate disasters in recent decades

Stacker ranked the most expensive climate disasters by the billions since 1980 by the total cost of all damages, adjusted for inflation, based on 2021 data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The list starts with Hurricane Sally, which caused $7.3 billion in damages in 2020, and ends with a devastating 2005 hurricane that caused $170 billion in damage and killed at least 1,833 people. Keep reading to discover the 50 of the most expensive climate disasters in recent decades in the U.S.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
