Today’s weather was nice and mild. We got a good bit of sunshine, and most of the rain stayed in South Alabama. We clear out overnight tonight, and that means temperatures will be able to fall below freezing again. Most of us will end up in the 20s by sunrise Wednesday.

It will be MUCH colder on Wednesday with plenty of sunshine as an area of high pressure sits over the state. High temperatures will only be in the mid to upper 40s. It will be clear and cold on Wednesday night with lows in the mid 20s.

We will see a little warm up on Thursday as the area of high pressure moves east of Alabama and southerly winds return. It will be partly cloudy with high temperatures in the mid 50s.

Another cold front will move through on Friday, but this will will be mostly dry with just a sprinkle is possible. It will turn colder again with high temperatures in the mid 40s.

Weekend Forecast: An area of high pressure will build across the southeast U.S. this weekend. It will bring in MUCH colder air once again. Saturday will start out in the upper teens to lower 20s. BRRR! We will only get to the upper 30s to lower 40s in the afternoon. Sunday will be mostly sunny and a little warmer with southerly winds returning across Alabama. High temperatures will climb back into the lower 50s.
