Frost Tonight/Thursday Night… Weekend Rain… Wednesday Forecast Update – 4:15pm #alwx @wvua23


Good Wednesday afternoon! Our local weather looks nice outside, but it is much cooler compared to yesterday. Temperatures at 4pm were generally in the lower to middle 50s across the area, under a sunny sky. A chilly northwest breeze is adding to the cool feel to the air. Winds go light tonight and the big question is will the wind die out enough for frost. I think there is a fair chance we’ll get atleast patchy frost overnight. Temperatures will drop into the lower 30s overnight, with a light freeze generally near and north of I-20. Wind speeds will be critical in terms of frost formation. I would recommend taking precautions to protect any frost sensitive vegetation tonight.


Thursday will be a cool and sunny day, with a high in the middle 50s. Winds will remain light out of the northwest at 5 to 10mph. Widespread frost will be an issue Thursday night, with a calm wind overnight and clear skies. Temperatures will be near or just below freezing along & north of I-20, but widespread frost will extend deep into south Alabama as well.

We’ll begin a warming trend on Friday and Saturday, with highs well into the 60s. We could even reach 70 on Saturday. Clouds increase Saturday, and showers will move in late in the day. We’ll have a soaking rain and maybe some thunder Saturday night, but severe weather is unlikely. Showers will move out early on Sunday, with rain amounts near 1″.

The air will turn cooler again early next week, and there is a chance we will have a widespread frost with the next wave. It appears Tuesday night of next week would be the higher risk of a frost, but we’ll have more detail on that as we get closer.
