More cold air is pouring into the state and a strong north wind is adding to the chill. The sky will be partially cloudy through this evening, growing mostly cloudy by sunrise tomorrow morning. Lows tonight will be in the upper 20s and tomorrow our highs will only reach the upper 30s. There will be a moisture starved disturbance dropping in from the northwest tonight and this feature will bring more clouds for the start of the day tomorrow. The chance for seeing snow flurries is quite slim for tonight, although don’t be surprised if you see a stray flurry early tomorrow morning. There have been some snow flurries over north Alabama today. We will have some clearing by tomorrow afternoon and continuing into tomorrow night. This will set the stage for a cold Tuesday night. In fact, temperatures will be very cold for both tomorrow night and Wednesday night…we will drop into the 20s.
The good thing is that we will enjoy nicer days, with ample sunshine. Highs by Thursday will be near 60 degrees. Clouds will be on the increase Thursday night as a cold front approaches. This feature should squeeze out some showers on Friday and Friday night. The upper air pattern will become more west to southwesterly and this will keep us rather cloudy and unsettled through next Monday. Moisture overriding the state will bring a chance of showers for Sunday and Monday. Have a great evening!
