Hope you were able to get out there and enjoy the beautiful Saturday we were blessed to have. It truly is a blessing as it comes right between two cold snaps.
Tonight will be warmer than last night, into the lower 40’s for our overnight temperatures, but clouds will be on the increase. By Sunday afternoon, we’ll be mainly cloudy with a few light showers possible, mainly a threat for eastern and northern Alabama. These showers are scattered and light in nature, but could put a bit of a damper on the end of the weekend if you are caught unprepared. Temperatures will be a bit cooler on Sunday, in the upper 50’s and low 60’s for highs.
As we start the first week of March, the weather initially will be warm and cloudy, with some scattered showers each day; however, the lioness of Mother Nature in March returns later Tuesday and into Wednesday as a very stout cold front will bring us showers and thunderstorms and the return of winter right on its heels. Temperatures on Tuesday will be very warm, in the low and mid 70’s for many of us. As the cold front comes through on Wednesday, look for highs early in the day in the 60’s, but once the front moves through, the mercury will plummet as we are heading for a low Wednesday night in the upper 20’s. The precipitation is trying to linger into Thursday, meaning we could see a cold rain, or a wintry mix that would more than likely exclude any snow from the picture.
Thursday will be a rather raw day with temperatures struggling to warm above the 30’s and a cold northerly breeze. Temperatures Thursday night will be back into the mid 20’s just to prove to us that spring is still three weeks away.
Sunshine returns Friday to help us warm up for the weekend. Temperatures will be in the 40’s on Friday and then the upper 50’s Saturday afternoon as both days look dry and mainly sunny.
