Killing Frost/Freeze Ahead… Warmer Next Week… Friday Forecast Update – 4pm #alwx


Happy Halloween to you! It has been a nice weather day, as a strong cold front moves into the state from the northwest. A few tiny showers have formed on radar across the area, but these won’t last long in one spot, and many areas will remain dry. If you have plans outdoors this evening, most, if not all showers should be gone by 6pm. Expect conditions to become breezy, with temperatures rapidly dropping this evening. If you are going outdoors this eve, the jackets may be needed. Temperatures will reach the lower 50s by 7pm and middle 40s by 10pm. For the late night folks, expect temperatures in the 30s by midnight, with a freeze becoming possible for areas north of Demopolis. With breezy conditions tonight, I don’t expect any issues with frost tonight. That’s a different story tomorrow night, with a widespread frost/freeze combination.


The deep upper air trough is forecasted to quickly move east, so the cold air won’t last very long. However, the cold air will be just enough to cause some issues, with a sub-freezing night tonight and Saturday night. The big concern will occur Saturday night, with winds going calm and a strong area of high pressure near our area. Expect temperatures in the upper 20s to near 30 for most of west and central Alabama. If you have outdoor plants that can’t stand up to a frost and freeze, take the precautions now. Highs on Saturday will struggle to reach the lower 50s, in-fact, areas north of I-20 may stay in the 40s all day.

Temperatures will slowly start a warming trend on Sunday and Monday. Exepct lots of sun both days, with highs in the lower 60s on Sunday and upper 60s on Monday. Temperatures will rise into the lower 70s on Tuesday and Wednesday, with an increase in clouds for our area. The risk of rain is low on Wednesday and Thursday, but a passing shower is possible.
