Good Tuesday afternoon! Skies have become sunny all across Alabama this afternoon, making the cold air feel a little more bearable. Once the sun sets this evening, temperatures will drop like a rock. Dry air and calm winds will help to cool temperatures rapidly tonight, with all of the area going below freezing after midnight. We can expect middle 30s at 7pm, lower 30s at 10pm and upper 20s by midnight. Lows will fall into the 24 to 28 degree range, with a thick frost tomorrow morning.
Wednesday will feel pretty nice, as temperatures warm into the middle to upper 50s. A light to calm wind and sunny skies will cause conditions to feel great, especially after our recent cold air. A reinforcing shot of cold air will arrive Wednesday night, as a cold front tracks across the area. Temperatures will fall into the middle to upper 20s Thursday morning, with a Thursday afternoon high in the upper 40s. Despite lots of sun, a breezy north wind will make it feel rather cold.
A progressive pattern will allow another storm system to reach Alabama late Friday night and on Saturday. This next system will tap into lots of Gulf moisture, so rain will become likely. You’ll notice an increase in clouds through the day on Friday, with the risk of a stray shower Friday evening. The best chance of rain will move in after midnight Friday night and early Saturday morning. Rain will continue for much of the day on Saturday, with storm totals of 1 – 3″ becoming likely. Rain will end sometime Saturday evening, with dry and cold air taking over on Sunday. Look for highs in the upper 40s on Sunday and Monday, with lows in the upper 20s Sunday night.
