Central AL Forecast: Drying out through New Year


A line of showers with a few embedded thunderstorms are tracking along a cold front pushing through the area. The severe weather threat is over for the evening. Showers will continue through midnight.

The last couple of days of 2019 look mostly sunny, dry and cool. Actually, temperatures will drop to near our averages, since the last week has been much warmer than it should be. Look for Monday afternoon highs to rise to the mid to upper 50s with tons of sun. Skies will be clearing out throughout the day, behind a cold front that worked through the area. Morning lows on Tuesday will fall to the mid and upper 30s under a clear sky. The last day of 2019 will be a little cooler than Monday with highs in the low and mid 50s. If you have plans for NYE tonight, bundle up, it’ll be another cool night with temps in the 30s overnight. 

A dry day is expected for the New Year with cool temperatures once again. Cloud cover will be increasing through the day ahead of our next weather maker. Temperatures will start off in the low to mid 30s on Wednesday and climb only into the low to mid 50s. Thursday and Friday however will be more unsettled with the chances for more wet weather through Friday night. We could see a soaking, widespread rainfall event. Rainfall totals could top 2 inches.
