Central AL Forecast: Quiet Few Days Ahead, Rain and Storms Fri/Sat


TONIGHT: Clear sky and cold yet again.  Temperatures steadily dropping into the upper 30s after sunset.  We’ll be in the low 30s just before sunrise tomorrow morning.

WEDNESDAY: No big changes for tomorrow…more sunshine!  All-in-all, a beautiful January afternoon.  Highs expected in the low 60s.  Light SW breeze at 3 to 5 mph.

THURSDAY: Clouds increasing as winds turn to the South.  Partly cloudy and not quite as cold overnight.  Morning lows in the upper 30s, afternoon highs in the low 60s.

FRIDAY: Scattered showers ahead of our next cold front.  Plenty of rain should begin developing areawide Friday afternoon, so plan accordingly!  Warming up a bit as well. Morning lows in the mid 50s, highs in the upper 60s.  Turning windy as well…South winds at 10 to 20 mph.

SATURDAY: STRONG STORMS LIKELY.  Still high confidence on strong to severe thunderstorms developing sometime during the day Saturday.  Due to the potential event still being 4 days away, we can’t say for sure how intense this event could be.

What we do know is a squall line is likely to develop along the front, producing heavy rain, strong winds, and possibly tornadoes.  Because of this, Saturday is a CBS 42 Weather Alert Day.

Be sure to:

  1. Have a way to receive weather warnings,
  2. Know where your local storm shelter is located,
  3. Pay attention to the forecast as it develops this week!

SUNDAY: Storms ending overnight into Sunday morning.  Cooler & drier for Sunday afternoon with partly cloudy skies.  Morning lows in the 40s, highs in the 60s.
