We're getting a nice break in the active weather across Alabama. Dry and cool best describes the forecast over the next several days. For tonight, you had best bundle up after sunset. Temperatures will quickly dip into the mid 40s with overnight lows a few degrees below freezing. Skies will be clear during the overnight.
Weekend Forecast: We'll continue with mostly sunny skies and cool temperatures. The mornings will be downright cold, but during the afternoon the sunshine will certainly help warm things up just a bit. Highs during the afternoon will reach the lower 50s. Expect temperatures to be freezing cold again Sunday morning with lows ranging from 30-32 degrees. It will be a bit milder Sunday afternoon. Temperatures are expected to reach around 56 degrees.
What about snow? I doubt we'll see much of anything Monday night into Tuesday. Widespread wintry precipitation is not likely. We will likely see a few showers during the day on Monday with otherwise partly sunny skies. Clouds will stream in Monday night and it is possible some rain could mix with some snow for areas north of I-20. Of course, this is nothing that would result in travel problems. In fact, most folks will see no wintry precipitation.
Colder Temperatures: An Arctic front will settle into the area next week. This will mean a dramatic change in temperatures. We will go from highs in the upper 40s on Monday to highs in the mid 30s on Tuesday. Fortunately, the models are not as cold as they looked earlier in the week for Wednesday morning. Expect overnight lows in the mid to upper 20s. Overall, the temperatures are trending a bit warmer. Highs on Wednesday will reach the mid 40s. We'll see mostly sunny skies with temperatures in the lower to mid 50s late week.
Have a great evening!
