I don’t know about you but nothing says spring like waking up to 34 degrees.

Hopefully soon our area will be able to enjoy springtime weather. However, my mother always warned me of an April freeze.

Currently, we are closely monitoring the potential for severe weather late this week with concerns of damaging winds and possible tornadoes.

I would like to stress the importance of checking weather information because as conditions change so will the forecast. The threat timing and threat levels could be adjusted.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that during the day on Friday it will be "warm and breezy with a high back in the low 80s. Then a cold front will push an organized band of showers and thunderstorms into the state Friday into early Saturday morning. SPC maintains a risk of severe thunderstorms for Northwest Alabama in their "Day 4" outlook.”


As of right now, the overall threat timeframe according to the National Weather Service in Birmingham is from "Friday at 9:00 p.m. until Saturday at 7:00 a.m. However, our coverage area is in the window between Friday at 9:00 p.m. and Saturday at 3:00 a.m."

We will be sure to keep you updated on this incoming active weather system.

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.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
