Tonight, will become mostly clear. It will be colder with lows in the mid to upper 20s with afternoon highs returning to more seasonable values in the mid 50s. We will see a mostly clear sky Tuesday.
A cold front will move across Alabama late Wednesday night into Thursday morning. This will bring in some warmer air ahead of it, and that will allow for numerous showers and a few thunderstorms. High temperatures will be in the lower 60s Wednesday, but temperatures quickly cool as the front passes.
We will turn MUCH colder on Thursday as an area of high pressure builds north of Alabama. The rain will end by midday, and it is possible a few area of wintry mix could develop over NE Alabama. Otherwise, it will be mostly cloudy with high temperatures in the lower 40s. Thursday night will be partly cloudy and very cold with lows in the lower to mid 20s.
Weekend Outlook: The forecast this weekend is a bit uncertain. Forecast models are coming into a better agreement that an area of low pressure will develop along the coast. This low will move to the northeast to northern Florida, and Alabama will be on the northern side. The low will send rain northward and over some cold air. The uncertainty is whether we see some wintry mix or snow on Friday night (Euro) or will it be Saturday (GFS). At this time, we will keep the chance for precipitation around 20-40%, but this will likely go up as we get to the weekend as the models get a better idea on how/when the low in the Gulf forms. Saturday’s high temperature will be in the lower 40s. The precipitation will clear out on Sunday and it will become partly cloudy. It will stay cold with highs in the 40s. Make sure to check back for updates all week.
