Temperatures for the most part stayed above freezing last night but it was still cold enough for the start of this Saturday. The forecast for today looks great, with plenty of sunshine expected. High temperatures for later today will top out near 60-degrees, with lows in the upper 20s tonight. A cold front is on the way but this will be a dry frontal passage. Dry weather will be the story through the start of next week but we are still in a very active pattern. The dry weather should last through Tuesday and that should give our yards enough time to dry out. Temperatures will also make a nice recovery by Tuesday, with afternoon highs back in the middle to upper 60s.
Models show our next chance of rain arriving on Wednesday as a cold front enters Alabama. This particular front may stall as the upper air pattern switches to more of a southwest to northeast orientation. This would set the stage for cloudy conditions through Friday, along with more rainfall. A few thunderstorms may develop by Thursday night due to the increased low level instabilities. Highs will be flirting with the 70-degree mark in some areas on Thursday. Enjoy your Saturday!
