Cold Nights Ahead… Thursday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

we3.pngGood Thursday afternoon! Our local weather started off very warm just before sunrise this morning, but much colder has took over during the early morning hours. By midday, most spots were in the 40s and remain in the 40s as of 4pm. Expect skies to gradually clear out tonight, with cold temperatures remaining with us. If you have Halloween plans tonight, dress warm! Temperatures will be in the upper 30s by 7pm, with low to mid 30s around sunrise.

Friday through Sunday will feature identical weather. Highs will reach the upper 50s during the afternoon, with lows in the lower to middle 30s at night. A light freeze/frost is possible each night through Saturday night.

We’ll notice some filtered sunshine by early next week, but rain is unlikely through Wednesday. There may be a stray shower or two, but rain chances appear very limited at this time. Temperatures will return into the lower 70s by the middle of next week.

11:30pm Wednesday Update… Storms Moving in… #alwx @wvua23

At 11:30am, heavy rain and storms are moving northeast into west AL, currently north of I-20. Watching storms carefully for any sign of rotation. Tornado risk is low, but a spinner or two remains possible overnight. Flooding is possible too.

Very Low Severe Risk Tonight… Wednesday PM Update #alwx @wvua23

We’re watching the setup for a low end severe weather risk overnight and into early Thursday morning. This risk is low on the scale, but I can’t rule out a storm or two becoming severe.

The risks: A brief weak tornado or two can’t be ruled out. An isolated area of strong damaging winds will be possible as well. Hail is not expected.

What time: Midnight to 7am for areas west of I-65 for west Alabama. Areas over east Alabama, generally east of I-65 area in the risk between 4am and 9am.

Keep in mind, rain will continue long after the surface front moves through the area. Temperatures will turn sharply colder early Thursday morning as the front passes through.

Please have a way to get warnings tonight incase a tornado warning is issued for your area. We cover west and central Alabama non-stop in tornado warnings on tv and online.

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our local weather started off foggy in spots this morning, but clouds are back this afternoon. Expect temperatures to rise overnight, with 60s at sunset and near 70 at sunrise tomorrow. Rain will become widespread late tonight, with rain becoming heavy at times early Wednesday morning.

Rain will continue at times into Wednesday afternoon, with some thunder possible. There will be breaks in the rain. Temperatures will hold in the 70s all day.

Halloween day will feature a wet day, with rain and storms at times. A cold front will pass through the area during the early morning hours, sending chilly weather with the front. We’ll start off in the 70s at sunrise, then end up in the upper 40s by early afternoon. Rain will gradually end by around 3 to 4pm Thursday afternoon, so the weather should be drier for the Trick or Treaters Halloween night. Expect cold weather!

Sunshine will return on Friday through the weekend, but temperatures will be rather chilly, especially at night.

Dry for Now… Rain By Wednesday…Colder Air Soon! Monday PM Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640_jpg.png

Good Monday afternoon! Our local weather started off cloudy and gloomy today, but most of central and east Alabama has been in full sunshine and warm temperatures this afternoon. West Alabama remained cloudy and cool, as the pesky low cloud deck was extremely slow to clear.

Expect a partly to mostly cloudy sky tonight, with a low in the 50s. I expect most of our Tuesday to be dry, but areas south of HWY 80 may see a passing shower or two. Rain becomes widespread late Tuesday night and will continue at times on Wednesday.

Halloween day will feature a wet day, with rain and storms at times. A cold front will pass through the area around midday, sending chilly weather with the front. We’ll start off in the 70s at sunrise, then end up in the lower 50s by early afternoon.

Sunshine will return on Friday through the weekend, but temperatures will be rather chilly, especially at night.
