Sunday Afternoon Weather Discussion; Posted at 4:45 p.m.

Clouds have hung tough around the state, with temperatures in the middle 50s. A cold front moved through the state and brought some rain last night. There are still some showers along the front over deep south Alabama; in-fact, the front has stalled out just to the south of Highway 80. As a disturbance rides along that front during the overnight hours, expect some light to moderate rain to overspread places along and south of I-20/59. There is a band of moderate rain now moving into southern Sumter and Marengo Counties. The heavier rain will stay south of Highway 80. This disturbance will move out of here by daylight, leaving us with sunny and warmer conditions for tomorrow; highs will be back into the lower 60s. We will have to go through a cold night before a big warm-up on Tuesday. Temperatures will start off Tuesday in the lower 30s. With plentiful sunshine, we’ll have highs into the upper 60s. Lower 70s can be expected for communities over south Alabama.

A cold front will move into the state late Tuesday evening, but there will be limited moisture to work with, so don’t expect any rain. There will be some cooler weather in the forecast on Wednesday, with highs in the upper 50s. Middle 50s can be expected on Thursday. This will set the stage for seasonal weather on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day. No rain will be found in the forecast until Friday. A very dynamic storm system will march into town Friday, which will set the stage for showers and storms. Rainfall could be heavy at times. Temperatures will reach the lower 60s on Friday.

Expect a quick shot of cold weather on Saturday; highs will top out in the lower 50s, with sunny skies making a return. Sub-freezing weather will be around on Sunday morning, as lows make 30 degrees. A quick warm-up is in store for Sunday, with a high close to 60 degrees.

Looking ahead, we will have some really cold weather in the forecast in 8 or 9 days. Stay with us as we move into some colder days ahead. Be sure to join be tonight at 10 p.m. for the latest on your forecast. Have a great Sunday!
