Good Thursday afternoon! After some winter weather issues in the area this morning and early afternoon, our weather is quickly drying out this afternoon. I haven’t heard of any major traffic issues along and south of I-59 in the Tuscaloosa area, but use caution if you must drive this evening or tonight. There are some icy areas along I-59 northeast of Birmingham… Any moisture on the roads as the risk of becoming icy after sunset, mainly on bridges. At 4pm, temperatures were in the lower 30s along I-59 and slowly rising now that the precip has ended. If your area rises above freezing, roads will likely dry out before any re-freeze would become possible tonight… The main risk of anything becoming icy is in areas that got accumulating winter weather near HWY 278 (near Hamilton and Cullman). Temperatures will get cold tonight, with lower 20s across much of central Alabama. Upper teens are possible in a few spots near Hamilton, Cullman and Gadsden.
We’ll start a slow warming trend on Friday, with a good dose of sun. Highs will reach the upper 40s in most spots, with a light north breeze. Skies remain mostly sunny through Saturday, with a high near 60. We’ll start off Saturday morning in the upper 20s. With an increase in clouds on Sunday, there’s a decent chance we’ll remain in the 50s all day. A few showers will become possible Sunday afternoon and evening. We’ll deal with a rather low risk of occasional showers on Monday and Tuesday. Highs will warm into the 60s Monday through Wednesday, with lower 70s possible on Thursday!
Don’t forget to set your clock ahead one hour before you go to bed Saturday night. We enter daylight saving time in the predawn hours of Sunday morning.
