Sunday Evening Weather Update – 8:12 PM

A good Sunday to you! Raw weather continues across the northern half of Alabama, with a chilly northwest wind and cloudy skies. The sun was out over the southern 3rd of the state, which caused temperatures to warm well into the middle and upper 60s. While it was warmer to the south, parts of north Alabama didn’t make it out of the middle 50s. We’ll hang on to mostly cloudy skies tonight; expect lows in the middle 40s. The breeze will relax some overnight, but it will pick back up during the day tomorrow.

It sure looks like we’ll see more sun tomorrow, which will allow for our temperatures to warm up a little more. Areas south of Tuscaloosa could reach the middle 60s due to more sunlight. Anyone north of Fayette will likely not reach 60. The morning hours will still be mostly cloudy, but sun will gradually increase during the day.

Tuesday morning is looking good, as we will continue to see mostly sunny skies. Temperatures will top out near 60 degrees, but clouds move in late in the day, which will put a halt to the increasing temperatures. An upper-air disturbance moves in Wednesday and Thursday, which will bring a few showers to the state. Don’t expect anything heavy out of it, but some light rain at times is possible. Temperatures remain in the lower to middle 60s for highs and lows will be in the lower 40s. As sun returns on Friday, we can expect temperatures in the upper 60s. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a few thermometers reach 70 degrees. Another storm-system moves in by Saturday night. Rain is likely Saturday night and Sunday. Be sure to join me on television tonight at 10 PM on WVUA-TV for more on your weather.

Have a great day!
