Good Thursday afternoon! It’s a cool and dry day across Alabama, with most spots reaching the lower to middle 50s for highs. This is the first of two shots of cooler air, with the second round of chilly weather taking over late tonight and early on Friday. Despite the sun tomorrow, temperatures will stuggle to reach the middle 40s for highs.
There could be a few snow flurries over the northeast corner of Alabama sometime late tonight or early Friday. That will not include cities such as Tuscaloosa and Birmingham… Skies will remain mostly sunny on Friday, but the chilly airmass will not modify that much across our area. As the upper air trough moves east over the weekend, we’ll notice a warming trend on Saturday and Sunday. Highs will reach the upper 50s on Saturay and Sunday. There could be a shower or two on Saturday, but many of us will stay dry. The stray shower or two is in response to a fast moving upper level disturbance. Since the air is so dry, it’s going to be hard to get any rain to the surface.
Skies will become sunny on Sunday and Monday. Lows at night will remain in the low to middle 30s, so expect the chilly nights to continue. Highs will moderate into the lower 60s on Monday and Tuesday. We could reach the middle 60s by the middle of next week. Another weak disturbance may bring the risk of a passing shower on Tuesday and Thursday of next week, but I doubt we get that much rain then either.
