Central AL Forecast: Showers Today; Flurries Monday?


Shaped up to be a pretty nice end to the weekend. Sun broke through the clouds and our temperatures were warm in the upper 60s, low 70s! Don’t get used to the warmth. A cold front is pushing through the area. This is going to drop our temperatures rapidly overnight. Expect it to be very blustery with winds out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph, gusting at 20 to 25 mph. There is also the chance for flurries.

FLURRIES OVERNIGHT?: It’ll be a frigid start to the week with temperatures struggling to get into the lower 40s by Monday afternoon. Overnight Sunday into Monday, there may be enough moisture left for flurries. Time frame will be between midnight and 6 a.m. mainly north and east of Interstate 22. Chance for precipitation is about 20 percent. 

Temperatures will be falling into the 30s and by tomorrow morning, we will feel temperatures hovering around freezing. While there may be a dusting of snow for some, travel impacts are not expected because temperatures will likely be right above freezing. 

MONDAY: It is going to be a COLD start to the week. Winds will remain brisk out of the northwest at 10 to 15 mph. Temperatures will struggle to get out of the 30s by Monday afternoon. The sky will gradually clear out and clear and cold conditions will stick around through much of the week. 

High pressure remains in control and it’ll remain clear and cold through midweek. It’ll be in the upper 20s both Tuesday and Wednesday morning. The afternoon will be sunny and in the upper 40s on Tuesday and slightly warmer, in the low to mid 50s on Wednesday.  The next system we will be watching should arrive Friday after a warm up at the end of the week. It is too soon to talk about specifics. But, this is what we will be watching for the potential for storms and possibly even severe storms.
