Good Friday evening! I had a great time speaking to the 5th grade classes at Huntington Place Elementary this morning for career day! I’ll show the kids on WVUA-TV news at 5, 6 and 10pm.
Our local weather today has turned out fantastic, with warmer temperatures and some sunshine. As of 5pm, clouds have moved into the area this evening, with a little light rain and sprinkles moving into Alabama from the west. If you have plans outdoors this evening or tonight, have an umbrella handy incase some sprinkles or light rain moves into your area. If you get rain at your house, it won’t last long and won’t amount to much. This activity is in response to a warm front tracking northeast into Alabama. Expect lows in the lower 40s late tonight.
The weekend forecast is looking great, with mild temperatures and dry conditions. Expect highs in the lower 70s on both Saturday and Sunday. Skies will remain partly sunny, due to some low level moisture. Expect lows in the upper 40s to lower 50s at night Saturday night and Sunday night.
A cold front will pass through Alabama on Monday, which will really drop temperatures into the chilly range. Highs will top out in the middle 50s early Monday morning, then falling into the 40s after 10am Monday morning. The jackets will be needed on Monday. Expect the risk of rain to be rather high on Monday, but rain totals should remain under 1 inch across the area.
Skies become sunny on Tuesday, with a high in the lower 50s. Models have warmed this shot of cooler air a bit for Monday through Wednesday, so I don’t expect anything brutal… Highs will reach the lower 50s on Tuesday and lower 30s during the overnight hours both Monday night and Tuesday night.
A Gulf low will spread a little rain into the state on Wednesday and Thursday of next week. Models indicate that temperatures will remain well above freezing, so wintry weather isn’t expected.
