January 13, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Friday afternoon! Our local weather has turned out very mild again today, with temperatures reaching the middle to upper 70s across all of west and central Alabama. Temperatures will drop into the lower 50s overnight, under a partly cloudy sky. Dewpoints have dropped a bit, which will allow temperatures to get a tad cooler than previous nights.
The upper air ridge responsible for the warm weather will remain in place through the weekend, allowing temperatures to reach the middle 70s on Saturday and Sunday. Expect a partly cloudy sky over the weekend, with a light to calm wind.
Clouds will increase early next week, as the ridge breaks down and a trough progresses eastward. Look for a small chance of a shower on Monday and isolated showers on Tuesday, but I don’t expect a lot of rain. A few waves of showers and storms will progress across Alabama sometime Tuesday night or on Wednesday. A second surge of showers and storms will be possible sometime Thursday night into Friday. Severe weather is unlikely at this time, but we’ll carefully watch trends.
