Wet Wed. & Thu. – Drier Weekend Ahead (8:45PM 2/27/2018 Update)


Showers are moving into west Alabama late on this Tuesday evening. Rain has spread into Pickens, Greene, Sumter, and Marengo counties from the west. You can expect more rain over the next 24 hours as a cold front approaches from the northwest.

WEDNESDAY… Rain is likely throughout the day. No one spot will have rain all day most likely, but most will have intermittent rain. High temperatures peak in the mid-70s across central Alabama. Rain will continue sporadically into Wednesday night.

THURSDAY… Temperatures “go the wrong way” all day. We’ll actually have our high temperature on Thursday around midnight with temperatures falling throughout the day as a cold front moves across our region from northwest to southeast.

UPCOMING WEEKEND… Picture perfect weather is expected with seasonal temperatures. High temperatures on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday will peak in the mid-60s. Morning lows will be around 40. Saturday looks to be the coldest morning out of the next 7 days with some spots hitting the upper-30s by 6AM. Hamilton, Double Springs, Jasper, Cullman, Centre could make a run at the mid-30s.

NEXT WEEK… The latest model data supports elevated rain chances on Monday and Tuesday. For now, we’ll call it a 40% chance of rain each day, but don’t be shocked to see those chances adjusted higher in the days ahead.

Be sure to join us tonight for WVUA News at 10:00 P.M. I’m glad to be filling in for Chief Meteorologist Richard Scott today and tomorrow. Have a great evening!
