Thursday Afternoon Update – 2:30 p.m.

It’s a sunny afternoon across West Alabama today, however, it’s rather chilly! Temperatures are in the upper 40s around the whole area.
This morning, lows started out int he upper 20s and lower 30s.

Here’s a look at some area lows:

  • Hamilton – 29
  • Jasper – 30
  • Centreville – 33
  • Tuscaloosa – 33
  • Demopolis – 34
  • Selma – 38

Tonight, we’ll see temperatures lower than those numbers, I’m expecting upper 20s area-wide.

Tomorrow, we’ll see highs right around 50 with plenty of sunshine. Winds will be breezy at times in the afternoon and early evening.

Saturday looks to be nice, we’ll start off cold in the morning, in the upper 20s, then we’ll warm up to 55 in the afternoon.

Sunday looks to be even better, with highs near 60! Clouds will start to move in as we go through the day Sunday.

Sunday night, there’s a chance for rain as a vigorous Gulf low develops southwest of us. This storm is going to bring us rain and probably some snow before all is said and done.

Cold air will be in place, and with overriding moisture from this storm system, we could see some snow Monday afternoon into Tuesday.

Right now, it’s too early to tell how much snow, if any, we will see here in West Alabama. But, confidence is growing that we will see some wintry weather to start off the first week of February.

Here’s what I’m thinking about this system… here in West Alabama, we will start with rain showers late Sunday night/early Monday morning. Monday afternoon, we’ll start to see a change over to snow. Monday night, snow will taper off. Tuesday, we’ll see some flurries.

As this system moves across the panhandle of Florida, it will then race northward, causing a big nor’easter for the Mid-Atlantic and New England states next week.

Again, this is a changing situation… so please check the blog for updates and also catch our forecast on the news at 4, 5, 6 and 10 p.m.

Looking past Monday and Tuesday, we’ll be cool with mostly sunny skies for Wednesday and Thursday.

I’ll be in today and tomorrow for Wes with West Alabama’s forecast.
