Here is everything you need to know about the incoming weather system that could bring heavy showers that could prompt flooding risks for West and Central Alabama.

Thursday Information

You can expect Alabama to be mostly dry and in the mid-80s with only a few showers over the eastern and southern counties. As the day progresses into the late evening you will notice the cloud coverage increase.

Friday Details

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that the “wet weather returns tomorrow thanks to deep moisture in place and a broad surface low over Southeast Louisiana. Expect a period of rain and a few thunderstorms... not an "all day/all night" rain, but when the rain does come it could be heavy in spots. Temperatures hold in the 70s all day due to clouds and showers.”

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.
