Rain Now… Sunny Days Ahead! Wednesday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640_jpg.png

Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather remains very wet across the state as of 4pm, with widespread rain covering nearly the entire state. Rain will come to an end this evening from west to east, as dry air takes over tonight. Temperatures will gradually fall into the lower 30s late tonight, with a light freeze for many areas close to sunrise tomorrow. I don’t expect any travel issues, as there will be time for roads and bridges to dry out before we reach the lower 30s.

We’ll continue with the low clouds for much of the day on Thursday, but gradual clearing will take place from southwest to northeast. By mid afternoon, most of our area should be in sunshine. As winds go calm Thursday night, a heavy frost and light freeze is expected. Temperatures will range from 28 to 32 degrees across all of west and central Alabama. Frost is likely well into deep south Alabama.

Skies will be sunny on Friday through the weekend. Temperatures will gradually rebound, with upper 50s for highs on Friday and lower to middle 60s this weekend. Temperatures at night will return into the lower 40s this weekend.

Very Chilly Now… Sunshine Returns Friday… Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (1).JPG

Good Tuesday afternoon! Today has been a very chilly, gloomy, damp day in Alabama. Temperatures started off near 50 in many areas around sunrise this morning, with most areas falling into the lower to middle 40s by noon as cold air deepens across our area. With a southwest flow aloft, moisture continues to overrun the cold air, giving for the gloomy look. Expect temperatures to drop into the upper 30s by tomorrow morning.

A very deep upper level low west of Alabama will increase uplift and spread rain in from the south on Wednesday. Expect periods of light to moderate rain for most of our Wednesday. It’s interesting to note that under the upper level low, snow is likely on Wednesday and Wednesday night for north Mississippi and west Tennessee, where a winter weather advisory has been issued. For Alabama, thermal values do not support snow and there will be a dry air in the mid levels of the atmosphere to prevent any risk here. Expect a cold rainy Wednesday in Alabama, and that’s it. The upper air low will remain to our west and north, keeping the setup of snow away from our area.

Expect a slow return of sun Thursday afternoon, as dry air finally takes over. I expect a full sunny sky on Friday through the weekend. We’ll have a light freeze Wednesday night for west Alabama, but clouds will prevent widespread frost from developing. By Thursday night, a calm wind and clear sky will allow for a widespread light freeze and a thick frost!

We’ll warm into the lower 60s during the afternoon hours over the weekend, with lows in the lower 40s. Temperatures will remain generally below average for the next 7 days.

Cold Front is on the Way… Dry Out by the Weekend – Monday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640 (8).JPG MONDAY E OWEN.JPG

We saw quite a bit of rain for today, but the widespread rain has ended, and now we’re just expecting scattered showers throughout the night. Lows tonight will be pretty chilly, in the mid 40s. Tuesday the rain showers continue but will end around the late morning hours. We’ll actually see our high temperature for Tuesday in the morning, as a cold front moves through Tuesday after lunch and drops our temperatures and brings another chance to see a good chance of rain. Temperatures will only get to the mid 40s for Tuesday!

Wednesday includes more rain, with scattered showers all throughout the day, with cold temperatures as well. Wednesday night lows will be in the upper 30s, so bundle up! Thursday we start to dry out, but temperatures remain in the upper 40s, and mostly cloudy conditions.

Friday we will once again see the sun, and temperatures will be at a comfortable 57 degrees. Now, keep in mind our average high for this time of year is around 68 degrees, so we’re still remaining below average for this time of year. The weekend looks nice as well with plenty of sunshine and temperatures in the 60s.

Sevenday_640 (8).JPG Sunday E OWEN.JPG

Good Sunday afternoon! Today we saw the sun peak out at times, but overcast conditions the majority of the day and the clouds are ahead of all of the rain we will be seeing tomorrow. Monday looks like it’s going to be a washout, so keep the umbrella and rain boots close by. Expect to see new rainfall amounts around 2-3 inches. It will be in the lower 50s tomorrow as well, but the cloud cover and rainy conditions will have us feeling cooler than 53. The rain will continue throughout the night on Monday as well.

The rain will end closer to the lunch hour on Tuesday, and temperatures will be in the mid 40s! Tuesday will be pretty chilly because of the cloud coverage we’ll see. Don’t expect to catch a break from the rain until about Friday. Wednesday and Thursday we’ll see scattered showers, and expect to see cloudy/dreary conditions.

Friday we’ll start to dry out just in time for the weekend, but we have some cold mornings ahead of us. Could even see some frost on the ground on Friday morning as well. Saturday we’ll warm up to a nice 58 degrees, with mostly sunny skies.
