Warmer with Increasing Clouds… Saturday Forecast Update — 8:15pm


Brilliant sunshine today brought temperatures up into the upper 40’s this afternoon despite a brisk northerly breeze. Temperatures tonight will be down into the mid and upper 20’s, so make you are staying warm tonight. Clouds increase as we head through the day on Sunday, although that will not stop us from warming into the mid 50’s. By evening, the sky will be mostly cloudy although we will remain dry through the evening. Temperatures Sunday night will be mild, only reaching into the low 40’s.

President’s Day will be mild, but with plenty of rain. Expect rain showers with a few rumbles of thunder mixed as we go through Monday. We could see 1-2″ of rainfall on Monday, but major flooding shouldn’t be a problem. Neither should any severe weather. A few thunderstorms are possible, but nothing severe is expected with Monday’s rain. Early Tuesday morning, the rain moves east and we begin to dry and clear out. Temperatures will be seasonably mild for midweek Tuesday and Wednesday.

Warm air pumps into Central Alabama to close out the week though under a mostly sunny sky Thursday and on into the weekend. Temperatures will easily reach the upper 60’s and lower 70’s by Friday and Saturday, but there will be a few more clouds to be dealt with on Saturday. Dry conditions are expected through Saturday.
