January 31, 2017 Leave a comment
Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather is incredibly mild this afternoon, with all of west and central Alabama reaching the lower to middle 70s. A few upper 70s were also reported this afternoon over west Alabama. With plenty of sunshine and the upper air trough now well east of Alabama, conditions have modified quickly today. A weak cold front is on the way and that will bring some temporary changes to Alabama’s weather later this week.
Temperatures tonight will fall into the middle to upper 40s under a increasing cloud cover. Skies will become mostly cloudy at times on Wednesday, as moisture pools up ahead of an approaching cold front. A few showers will be possible Wednesday night, on Thursday and on Friday, but widespread rain is unlikely. Temperatures will drop into the low 60s for highs on Thursday, followed by upper 50s for highs on Friday and Saturday. Groundhog Day is on Thursday, and no matter the outcome, our local weather will remain well above average for the most part through April. We will catch some cooler air Thursday through Saturday, but temperatures will actually be closer to average, then rise well above average by Sunday and Monday.
Another cold front will approach Alabama on Sunday, but this front appears to remain north of our area. A few showers are possible, but cooler air should remain to our north. A gusty south wind will develop on Sunday and Monday, sending warm Gulf air back into Alabama. Other than some slightly cooler air Thursday through Saturday, the majority of this forecast will reflect spring like weather…
