Friday Update – 2:55 p.m.

It’s been a pretty nice day across the area… sunshine and temperatures in the lower 50s. There are a few clouds out there, but the weather should stay calm tonight… and through the weekend.

We’ll see warmer temperatures tomorrow and Sunday with highs in the middle 50s tomorrow and the lower to middle 60s Sunday!

Of course, all eyes are on Monday. Right now, a low pressure system will be developing in the Gulf of Mexico. It will head northeast into the panhandle of Florida Monday.

We’ll see a cold rain Monday, and early in the afternoon, cold air will catch up with that rain as it’s ending. That means a period of some snow is possible Monday afternoon and evening.

It’s early to call for any accumulations… but we could see a dusting across West Alabama.

Right now, it looks like the rain will start to change over to snow at about 1 or 2 Monday afternoon in our far northwest counties, Lamar and Fayette. By 6 p.m. Monday, the snow change over should be happening along Interstate 20/59. By 8 p.m. the snow line moves into our southern most areas in Marengo County.

This, of course, can and will change as we get closer.

As this low lifts up the eastern coast, it will pull down a tremendous amount of cold air. Tuesday, there will be some lingering flurries along with gusty northwest winds and high temperatures in the low 40s.

Wednesday through Friday, temperatures start to moderate with mostly sunny skies.

Richard Scott will have updates over the weekend here on our blog and on the air.

I’ll have the forecast today on WVUA News First at 4:00 and the news at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00 p.m.
