Good Thursday afternoon! Our local weather started off cool this morning, with many areas in the lower 50s. With a good dose of sunshine, temperatures managed to reach the middle 70s this afternoon for most of our area. Expect skies to remain mostly clear tonight, with temperatures dropping into the upper 50s after sunset.

On Friday, we’ll maintain nice fall conditions. Temperatures will warm into the upper 70s Friday afternoon, with a partly cloudy sky. A few spots could touch 80 during the afternoon hours. I don’t expect any rain on Friday or for local high school football Friday night. A surface cold front will approach on Saturday. The front will bring a few scattered showers, but models are really backing off on the amount of rain. I’ve decreased the risk to 40% based on the latest data. Scattered showers will be possible generally from sunrise through 1pm Saturday. Much cooler temperatures can be expected Saturday night and Sunday night, with widespread 40s.

After a chilly start to Monday, temperatures will approach 70 by Monday afternoon. Look for a mostly sunny sky. The next rain event will arrive by the middle of next week.

Cooler Air Ahead… Light Rain Tonight… Tuesday Afternoon Forecast Update #alwx @wvua23

Sevenday_640.JPG

Good Tuesday afternoon! Our weather has been all over the board today across the state, with a chilly, rainy day in the northwest and a very mild, dry day in the southeast. At 4pm, Montgomery was reporting a temperature of 85, while Haleyville is sitting at 54! For most of the day, rain has remained to the northwest of I-59. There is a chance of scattered showers overnight for all of west and central Alabama, with the higher rain chances remaining northwest of I-59.

Wednesday, cooler air will take over the entire area, with a high generally in the upper 60s. With a mainly cloudy sky and a few scattered showers, temperatures will likely remain below 70.

Thursday will feature nice conditions, with a high in the lower 70s. We’ll see a few passing clouds on Thursday, but that will be our nicest day this week, with a high in the lower 70s.

Clouds increase on Friday, with rain approaching Friday night. We’ll watch for the arrival time on the rain chance Friday for the local high school games. At this time, it appears the higher rain chance will come in after 10pm Friday. Rain moves out early on Saturday, with a high in the upper 60s. Much cooler temperatures can be expected Saturday night and Sunday night, with widespread 40s.

Rain Ahead with Cooler Temperatures – Monday Afternoon Forecast Update #ALwx @wvua23

Dl0GG1vp.jpg

I hope you all enjoyed your last taste of summer like weather today, temperatures were back up into the mid to upper 80s here in Alabama. Tonight temperatures will be dropping down into the low 60s with a partly cloudy sky. Waking up Tuesday morning to cloudy conditions and as the day progresses, our chance to see rain increases. We have a cold front that will be sweeping across the state of Alabama tomorrow evening into the overnight hours that will be bringing in some cooler air behind it.

Wednesday we dry out from Tuesday’s showers, and our temperatures will be very nice with temperatures in the low 70s and even some areas could see temperatures in the upper 60s, and the cloudy conditions will make our temperatures feel cooler than what they actually are.

The seasonal temperatures are here to stick around for the remainder of the week, and rain chances hold off until Saturday. Saturday looks to be a wet day here in central Alabama, but at least the temperatures will remain nice!

7VLTTStT.jpg

Good Sunday evening, everyone! We experienced another gorgeous day here in central Alabama with clear skies and slightly warmer temperatures. For tonight, our temperatures will back off into the mid to upper 60s, with a partly cloudy sky.

For Monday, a more summer like day will be in store for us as temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s in some areas. Partly cloudy skies stick around, along with a very slim chance to see an afternoon rain shower. Clouds will increase as we head towards Tuesday. Tuesday will be a cloudy sky with scattered showers in the forecast.  There is also a greater chance to experience a passing rain shower, but most areas will continue to remain dry. A cold front will be sweeping across the state of Alabama come Tuesday night, and cool our temperatures down into the upper 60s for Wednesday.

As for the remainder of the week, temperatures continue to remain average for this time of year. It looks like fall is here to stay for a while! Our greatest chance to see widespread looks to be Saturday, with about a 70% chance of rain. The rain will cool our temperatures down a bit as well.

Warm, Then Rain Chances Usher in Cooldown – Saturday Forecast Update @wvua23 #ALwx

1013SevenDay

A lovely Fall Saturday is underway, with tonight’s temperatures falling back into the mid-60s. Sunday will be warmer than we’ve seen the past couple of days. Temperatures will reach the mid to upper 80s with mostly cloudy skies. That is still about five to ten degrees above average.

The cool down begins as a cold front starts to push south on Monday, which will increase clouds with spotty rain chances. Tuesday, highs will only reach the mid 70s. Tuesday afternoon currently looks like the best chance for showers. The shower chance continues into Wednesday, with an even cooler high of only 70. The exact timing on this front could change rain chances and temperatures. Right now I think that Tuesday is the most likely time frame for the cold front to push south of our area.

Thursday will be clear and cool, as the front will have pushed to our south and dry clear air arrives from the north. Morning lows will be near 50 degrees, with highs only reaching the low 70s. Friday will see a slight warm up, with some stray clouds. A second cold front looks to arrive on Saturday, once again upping rain chances and dropping temperatures.

Sevenday_1012 (1).JPG

Fall has finally arrived across the state! We had lows this morning in the upper 40s and low 50s in West Alabama. In Tuscaloosa, the low of 51 was the coolest morning since May 1st. The cooler weather looks to be sticking around, with only a slight warm up for this weekend.

Both Saturday and Sunday look great, with highs in the upper 70s/low 80s and abundant sunshine. Morning lows will be around 60, with slow warming into the afternoons. Some clouds will start to build in Saturday night and Sunday night, but mornings look clear.

As we go into Monday, a cold front begins to push into the region, upping rain chances Monday overnight into Tuesday. This will also drop our temperatures again on Tuesday, with highs only reaching the low 70s. The chill continues Wednesday, with us rebounding to the mid 70s by Thursday and Friday.
