Central AL Forecast: Soaking Rain; Polar plunge Monday


A stronger storm system is developing over Louisiana this morning & will track Northeast into Central Alabama.  This will give us a solid washout for much of the day.  We’re expecting 1 to 2” of rain areawide, with the rain lasting essentially from sunrise to sunset.  Again, as is the case tonight, we will not see dew points high enough to worry about any severe weather with this system…just rain.  Temps stay cool in the 60s.

Behind this next system, our first real blast of winter air will plunge into the Deep South.  We’ll start feeling that cold Arctic air Monday, as afternoon highs will struggle to reach 50°.

Cold temperatures will be the main theme next week…our first hard freeze of the season is expected Tuesday.  Morning temperatures Tuesday will reach the mid 20s.  Please plan accordingly!

That’s all for now!  Be sure to download the free CBS 42 Storm Team Weather App for up-to-the-minute weather alerts in YOUR area.  Also, give me a follow on Twitter @GriffinHardyWX for more weather updates from across Alabama & the Southeast.  Have a good night!
