An Arctic front stretched across the Midwest is forecast to approach the state line by Tuesday morning but that's as far south it will go. Phew! Check out the temperatures spread as of 8PM Sunday. It's 40 degrees colder in Kansas City than Birmingham!
A close call on Tuesday but the jet stream drives the front back northward after allowing it to stall out near the Alabama/Tennessee border for a couple of days.
We remain in the warm sector and with a warm and moist flow setting up overnight, expect mild lows in the middle and upper 50s and areas of dense fog to develop after 3AM and linger through 10AM Monday. Visibility may drop below a mile in most locations, especially to the south of I-20. Allow a little extra drive time in the morning and be sure to use your headlights.
The warm pattern looks to persist through the weekend with only subtle changes expected. Rain associated with the front appears minor and there's a 30% chance for showers across Central Alabama on Monday evening and overnight into Tuesday morning.
We'll continue to track the front and keep you updates as to the changes it might bring.
