Rain Ends Early Sunday…Colder Next Week – Saturday Evening Forecast Update 8:40 PM


Rain, rain, and more rain – that’s how you could describe today’s weather. We saw temperatures struggle to get out of the mid 40s so it was just a raw day out there. The rain continues tonight, but the heaviest rain is well east of Tuscaloosa, but expect lingering showers to continue overnight tonight into early tomorrow morning.

As this system departs to the northeast, subsidence on the back side could provide a few hours of partial clearing across the area tomorrow. I’m not overly confident in this happening, but should this happen, temperatures are forecast to rise into the low maybe mid 50s. However, clouds build right back in tomorrow afternoon in advance of another system that’s due in here Monday.

This system will have lots of cold air with it but moisture will be lacking and drier air will be filtering in through the day Monday. For that reason, I’m expecting mainly a raw, blustery day with temperatures cautiously approaching the lower 40s; I say cautiously because it could wind up where temperatures stay in the upper 30s. A few areas of light drizzle or maybe a flurry or two are possible, but no organized precipitation is expected.

The weather turns sunny just in time to end 2013 and to start 2014. It looks like a good supply of sunshine both days with highs in the mid 50s by Wednesday. The end of the week looks a little murky as far as temperatures are concerned, but a few showers are possible on Thursday followed by some colder air for Friday and Saturday. Again, expect some changes at least in the temperature department for Friday and Saturday, but for now both days look dry.
