A Passing Shower on Saturday, with Average Temperatures… Friday Afternoon Forecast Update – 4:45pm


Good Friday afternoon to you! Our weather has turned out cold today, with an afternoon high in the 40s across much of west and central Alabama. Some spots north of I-20 have stated in the 30s all day, despite the good supply of sun. The advection of cold air from the north has offset the warming from a sunny sky. As the sun sets tonight, temperatures will drop like a rock. Most spots will fall into the middle 20s, with a few lower 20s north of I-20. Skies remain clear tonight.

A fast moving upper disturbance will bring some clouds and a few showers on Saturday. I think many spots will stay dry, but a few showers are possible from time to time. Look for highs to warm into the upper 50s. The cold airmass will modify enough to prevent any winter weather issues in Alabama. It may be cold enough for a little snow in parts of Tennessee. The disturbance will move east of Alabama, and skies will become sunny on Sunday. Highs will remain in the upper 50s on Sunday, with 30s at night.

Groundhog Day is on Saturday. With morning sunshine expected, the groudhog may see its shadow. If that’s the case, we’re in for 6 more weeks of winter.

Another system will move in on Tuesday. You’ll notice an increase in clouds late Monday and on Tuesday. The risk of rain will arrive on Tuesday, but it doesn’t look like a soaking rain at this time. Afternoon highs will reach the lower 60s for many areas on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.
