Starting off the weekend on a chilly note with temperatures initially in the upper teens and lower to middle 20's. Bright sunshine initially, followed by increasing clouds this evening. Southwest winds increase which will help boost temperatures into the middle 50's across west Alabama and lower 50's across central Alabama and upper 40's to the east.
The strong breeze combined with low humidity will result in fire danger and there is a red flag warning in effect from 11AM until 5PM for areas along and south of I-20. Outdoor burning should be avoided.
A series of dry, cold fronts pass through between now and next week. The first arrives tonight and will result in slightly cooler temperatures on Sunday afternoon. Lower 50's west and upper 40's central and east Alabama.
The temperature meteogram below clearly shows just 1 day above normal, otherwise below normal temperatures are likely for a week.
A brief spike above normal on Monday with highs in the upper 50's and lower 60's. Perhaps a great day with kids being off for MLK Day to take them outdoors or to the zoo to enjoy the warmth while it lasts, because it's not going to last long.
A stronger but dry cold front moves in Monday night and afternoon highs will be above 20 degrees colder on Tuesday. The next front after that arrives on Wednesday night.
Next best chance for precipitation occurs next weekend.
