Central AL Forecast: Beautiful Spring day Monday


After an active morning with strong thunderstorms, rain has cleared the area and cooler temperatures are settling into the area. While we were in the upper 60s overnight, our temperatures are going to be about 20 degrees cooler and in the 40s this evening. The sky will gradually cool and wind speeds will dial back a bit. But, a cool breeze out of the northwest will continue to bring cooler temperatures into the area. 

MONDAY: It is going to be a beautiful start to the week. Temperatures will be chilly to start out the day, in the 40s. By the afternoon, it’ll be in the upper 60s. The sky will be clear and it won’t be humid at all. It’ll feel like a beautiful Spring day!

STORMS MIDWEEK: Our brief break from the active weather will come to an end on Tuesday. Scattered showers and warmer temperatures (in the 70s). Another cold front will move into the area Wednesday. This will have to be monitored for the potential for severe weather. For now, it appears the severe threat will be south of Interstate 20. But, we will continue to monitor the severe potential. 

FREEZE END OF THE WEEK?: A cold air mass is going to move in behind the storms and by Thursday morning, our temperatures are going to be in the 30s. By Friday morning, we may be near the freeze mark and a FREEZE WARNING may be needed since we are about a week past our average last freeze date and planting has already begun.
