Tonight, will be cloudy with some showers moving into central Alabama as a cold front moves toward the region. Low temperatures will be around 40°.

A trough of low pressure will send an upper-level wave and cold front across the state on Thursday. The front will move through during the late morning with scattered showers. There could be an opportunity for some wintry precipitation Friday morning from Hamilton to Cullman to Gadsden northward where a Winter Weather Advisory has been issued.. Only a very minor accumulation of 0.05″ is expected. The rest of the area south of that line will just have a cold rain.

High temperatures in the 40s will occur by mid morning, then will fall into the 30s during the afternoon.

Thursday night will become clear, and it turns very cold. Lows will be in the upper teens to lower 20s. BRRR!

An area of high pressure will build over us on Friday. We will have plenty of sunshine, but it will be MUCH Colder! High temperatures will only be in the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Weekend Outlook: The area of high pressure will move east of Alabama on Saturday, so this will bring back light southerly winds. We will become partly cloudy and a little warmer with high temperatures in the mid 50s. Another cold front will move through on Sunday with the return of scattered showers and thunderstorms. A few storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy rain. It will be warmer ahead of the front with high temperatures in the lower 60s.
